Even with all the nostalgia present in a hobby like collecting sneakers, there are several concrete examples that prove there’s never been a better time to be a sneakerhead. Take basketball shoes now as compared to twenty years ago, and what you see is that while there used to be one or maybe a small handful of basic styles available upon a model’s launch, today’s selection absolutely crushes what was out on store shelves in the golden age. The Nike Hyperdunk 2013, for example, is already out in upwards of 40 different makeups to match any team imaginable (not to mention NIKEiD), and yet, there’s still plenty of room to grow. Here’s one that uses a Mercury Grey upper and Metallic Silver Swooshes for a smokey, almost coal-like slant on the traditional ‘blackout’ look. Check them out from more angles below, and stick with Sneaker News for word on US availability.
