The Nike Zoom Hyperdunk is a very humble shoe. It has to be. Each and every year this shoe is overshadowed by the high profile Nike signature sneakers that are dropped in the names of LeBron James and Kobe Bryant. These signature sneaker lines seem to get all the publicity. This, in spite of the fact that those shoes are built at or above the same innovative and high performance standards that the Hyperdunk 2011 is. The new LeBron 9 and Kobe VII shoes will definitely get the most attention in the crowded basketball shoe marketplace. Well, that same marketplace has seen the Hyperdunk drop as often as the Kobe signature shoe. In other words, Nike has created a extremely high performance shoe in contructing the Hyperdunk and continues to improve the quality of the shoe. Just like they do with the LeBron and Kobe signature sneakers.
Like those shoes, the Nike Hyperdunk 2011 is a shoe that was and is designed for a baller who wants exceptional responsiveness on a basketball court. The Nike Flywire that is used on the shoe molds to the foot and creates the ultimate in comfort and support. Nike Phylon is used in the midsole for maximum impact protection. A solid rubber outsole provides for the best traction available in a basketball shoe. Getting the picture yet? These innovate design elements which are also used in Nike’s flagship LeBron and Kobe shoes, allow the Hyperdunk to offer an extremely lightweight ride for the avid baller.
Nike has released this shoe in a seemingly endless amount of colorways. One of the many different releases of the Hyperdunk 2011 that is available, is in a color Nike has dubbed “Volt”. This color is very similar to an electric lime. This particular colorway of the shoe uses Volt on it’s upper, tongue, laces, and a portion of the midsole. White is used on the ankle collar and solid rubber outsole. Metallic Silver takes care of the Swoosh. This shoe definitely stands out in the basketball crowd. Literally and figuratively. This is a shoe that commands attention due to it’s color. This one will not go unnoticed on the court. It also commands attention due to the it’s high performance standards.
Originally introduced in 2008, the Hyperdunk has become more and more popular each and every year it is released. This year has already seen 30 colorways of the Hyperdunk 2011 drop. This shoe is an epic shoe. However, not all of them are as epic as the new Volt colorway. This is definitely a pair of the best shoes that Nike has made available for basketball. And that includes any pair of the new LeBron and Kobe shoes.
