Touted as the lightest, most breathable basketball sneaker ever devised within the Beaverton, OR walls, the Nike Zoom Hyperfuse, which debuted in 2010, changed not only the standards of the ‘lightweight’ Basketball shoe, but permeated into circles of a number of other sports as well as the lifestyle-driven Nike Sportswear sector of footwear products. Although the Zoom Hyperfuse isn’t the only basketball model to use the material these days, it certainly deserves the credit for opening the door and re-routing Nike Basketball design to what we have today – the unparalleled best of basketball performance footwear. This first look at the Nike Zoom Hyperfuse 2012 shows an emphasis on design; while the previous two models focused more on function, the third adds in some design flair, using sleek curves and a ‘carved’ out midsole. We can expect a library of team-based and energetic colorways of the Zoom Hyperfuse 2012 later this year, so check out the detailed angles of this upcoming anchor and let us know where it ranks among the three flagship Hyperfuse models that we’ve seen thus far.

Again no zoom air,lunarlon or air bag at the heel area. Easy pass for me. Without cushioning at the heel, they feel same as Payless ATR shoes.
gotta be a girl color way or something. color is WILD. but they should do a NERF color way for these that'd be so dope i loved the NERF on the kd4s these would be cool too
Hyperfuse 2011 one of the best ballin kicks ever. I'll probably scoop these in a different color tho.
I'm tired of everybody calling every shoe that has pink in South Beaches, this shoe in no way looks like the SB which were Green, Black & pink.
i aint feeling these at all... Nike need to stop overusing the whole South Beach thing on shoes... smh
I guess every year there is gonna be a played out cw that would be on almost every nike model. Before Nike abused the eggplant cw and nowadays its the south beach cw...That being said i do like the south beach elites, but no to these...
When they releases the design photos of the 2011 Hyperfuse I hated them and same with these. But when I see actual pictures it turns out I love them.
Maybe it's just me, but this south beach shit is getting ridiculous. Say Og with the south beach 8's is what I'm saying.
They did a similar thing with the hyperenforcer, I guess it's a new thing, probably just for this year
