Nike Hyperdunk 2012
Four years ago, Nike unveiled a collection of gear for the Beijing Olympic Games that included the introduction of what’s become the Basketball division’s most successful non-signature release. We’re only six months away from the next Olympiad, so it’s time to start ramping up in a big way, which means revealing the next chapter in this saga of modern engineering triumphing over the forces of physics. The Nike Hyperdunk 2012 (also known as the Nike Lunar Hyperdunk 2012) will make a big splash at the London Summer Olympics, this pair revealing a Lunarlon foam cushioning system and the same kind of exteriorized Flywire that typified the mysterious LeBron James’ sample that made some waves when it popped up a few months back. It looks like LeBron and some other USAB stars may be moving over to this model this summer for Olympic play, a passing of the torch from Kobe Bryant who spearheaded the OG Hyperdunk’s initial marketing campaign; which other Nike athletes will be wearing this look in London? Click through to see more angles of this intriguing new design and stick with Sneaker News for more on the Nike Hyperdunk 2012 and other upcoming USAB footwear.
These are going to be $250 for whoever wants to know, I've seen a few videos that had the info, the release date I believe may be June 29th, and I would expect then being $250 after Nike making the lebron 9 elites.
The new "flywire" should be called LiveWire. them things are coming out of its shoes! But I want to cut them with a scissor. they are prime to be ruined by sharp objects or constant abrasion. LunarLon, though? I'm not sold on it.
visible flywire is a pretty nice feature of the shoe. will probably look better in other colorways tho.
Being a engineering student i love these. but it makes me wonder whats next for nike. they already began knitting running shoes so next its gonna be just a thin piece of cloth and a lil rubber sole lol and maybe a air unit. and this is basically what flywire really is except the wires are thicker and not sandwiched between the material
lunar in my opinion is like cushlon on the moto's and vomeros( very soft and springy spongy feel) but a little firmer. shoes with the lunar system usually dont have air units in them
