Blake Griffin is absolutely destroying the atmospheric layers with his mile-high leaps in the Nike Hyperdunk 2011; throw in Lunar cushioning and it might catapult him so high that he may never come back down! Here’s a first look at the Nike Lunar Hyperdunk 2012, which features a Hyperfuse x Flywire-stabilized shell on the upper with a basketball-specific Lunar outsole; the prominent swoosh on the toe gives the Lunar Hyperdunk 2012 an agressive look, while the interesting circular detailing embedded in the ankle adds a unique futuristic appeal to the shoe. Is the Lunar Hyperdunk 2012 from outer space? Check out the two upcoming colorways below and stick with Sneaker News for more updates regarding this new Nike Basketball model. via solefinder
the new generation fly wire... you will see those on LeBron 9 PS Elite.. i saw these on LeBron 9 Prototype...
so does this mean better cushioning either or this is an easy pass but i wanna see the final verdict
i think these are going to be mad comfy but again lunar soles for basketball just looks bulky, ugly and overweight, i dont like the sole. if they could just do what they did with the koston 1s (they made an insert to replica the lunar foams) and dont show the ugliness of the technology (the lines), i think i might consider any lunar ball shoe. also, the flywire looks like its b grade.
Idk how to feel bout these. The white colorway is better but... the exposed flywire is bothering me.
Interesting shift in design -- I still think the original Hyperdunks were the best design. These are okay -- although the giant swoosh up front makes me think more of Nike's Mercurial series on the soccer field rather than something on the basketball court.
