Nike Unveils the Hyperdunk 2016

Nike unveils the Hyperdunk 2016. Just like the KD 8 Elite, it looks like Nike will be making another boot-cut version more catered towards team models. Although last year's Hyperdunk sported a boot-cut height, this year's material looks more giving as Flyknit takes care of the upper predominantly giving the shoe a hybrid look with a built-in sock feature. Don't get this mistaken as an ankle brace, as the sock-like fit will likely give compression type support (if you would still call it support). However, looking at the image, it looks like the shoe's Flywire lacing system would likely give lockdown especially as it makes its way to the top, locking your foot inside the shoe. You can also notice that the shoe is not entirely flat on the heel and forefoot, giving the shoe a cradle-like motion which very ideal for a good heel-to-toe transition. Full-length Zoom Air is back with a see-through TPU panel which would aid the responsiveness of the Zoom Air. Finally, a multi-directional pattern was used in the outsole which is cored-out as well (to give way to the larger TPU panel) shaving off some weight. The shoe is set to drop on July 2016 with a low-top version dropping as well.
