New Jersey Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov has been open about his intention to take the franchise global and here’s his first chance to put the soon to be Brooklyn-based product on the map abroad. Tonight/this afternoon, the O2 Arena in London will host a regular season game between the Nets and Toronto Raptors, both of whom will outfit players in special Nike Hyperdunk 2010 ‘UK’ player exclusives. The colorways are similar to what you might expect, the Raptors edition pretty closely matching a retail release from late last year, but both go for gunmetal grey on their Flywire-embedded TPU uppers and add a Union Jack to the tongue to complete the British theme. These are available now in the UK, but stick with Sneaker News for word on a possible US release date. Click through to see both pairs, and let us know which is better.
