The Nike Hyperdunk made a huge splash when they first dropped in 2008, and after great sales, critical acclaim and of course, the McFly’s, the popular model was followed up by the Hyperize and Hypermax. While the Hyper-successors were also well-received, everybody has been wondering when we would finally see an official sequel to the Hyperdunk. Our recent interview with Nike designer, Jason Petrie, shed some new light on the upcoming Hyperdunk 2010, and now, we find out it was under our noses the whole time. A few weeks back, we came across a shoe that appeared to possibly be some type of cross between the Kobe V and the Hyperize, reminiscent of the Kobe IV x Hyperdunk hybrid, but it turns out that it was actually, in fact, the new Hyperdunk.
Now, thanks to SlamOnline, we get some new pics and info confirming the info. According to Slam, the Hyperdunk 2010 will be better than ever thanks to a nice blend of familiar and updated technology. The heavily Flywired upper and Dynamic Innersleeve will be a nice link to the original Hyperdunk, but the 2010 will lose the LunarLite in favor of a two-tiered Phylon midsole with a full-length Zoom Air bag providing the cushioning. Here we have a look at four upcoming colorways, including one with a full carbon fiber upper and an unmistakable Lakers color scheme. These are expected to hit stores in the first half of next year, so stay tuned for more soon. Additonal photos via NT.
