Culling inspiration from Fogg’s ACG and running designs like the Air Zoom Tallac, Air Terra Humara, Zoom Terra Sertig, Ashiko, and Structure Triax, this year’s edition of the Hyperdunk sees a rugged aesthetic that pairs will with its otherwise minimalist design – one that incorporates Hyperfuse construction, Dynamic Flywire support, and Lunarlon cushioning. According to Fogg:
Cleveland Cavaliers star point guard Kyrie Irving added “when I first put the new Hyperdunks on, I didn’t want to take them off. The performance was great and I feel like the shoe’s versatility benefits my game.” Look for the Nike Hyperdunk 2013 to make its global debut come July 20.
