Nike Basketball’s two-headed flagship models, the Hyperfuse and Hyperdunk, have debuted at the mid-point of the calendar year. While we’ve yet to see any NBA on-court exposure of the two high-performance models, here we have an advanced look at the third overall Zoom Hyperfuse model, designated by the 2012 year. The Zoom Hyperfuse 2012 certainly looks like an advanced, state-of-the-art shoe thanks to the re-designed Hyperfuse mesh/shell upper somewhat similar to the LeBron 9, but the larger Swoosh emblem (the 2011 had a tiny version of it on the midfoot) gives the shoe somewhat of a classic appeal. With Hyperfuse being the standard on Nike Basketball sneakers, these could in fact a different model, but based on the outsole traction design and simple design, it falls right in with the Zoom Hyperfuse lineage. These fifteen colorways are what you can expect in 2012, likely during the Fall 2012 season, so check ‘em out below and let us know which of the three Hyperfuse models you like best. via aaronknows.

I think these shoes are even a step back from the 2010s and I think the Nike design team needs a few replacements. Hope they do better next year.
The upper is okay but the midsole looks really chunky with it color blocked like that. Should be sleaker IMO
YOU GUYS ARE ALL TALK... COP THIS, COP THAT, NO COP... NO COP BECAUSE YOU DONT HAVE THE MONEY JUST ALL TALK...
i mean, maybe they'll look cool on the court, but nike has half a year before these are scheduled to release, i say they go back to the drawing boards
just look like an up dated version of the 2010s, they gotta keep pushing new concepts like they did in the 2011 if they want to stand out
