Despite the high-tech and advanced design/engineering of the Lunar Hyperdunk, the shoe symbolizes the spirit of basketball from its earliest roots as much as it does the future of the game and all the notable individuals who will walk the path. Made for a fallen hero of the 1980′s basketball scene in Chicago, IL, this Nike Lunar Hyperdunk+ set was put together by design boutique iLoveDust of the UK to pay tribute to Benji Wilson, a high-school phenom that dominated the high-school ranks as a player for Simeon Vocational High School. The distressed wooden box features a number of logo graphics specific to Benji’s personal life, like his school logo and ’25′ jersey number, and includes a pair of the Nike Lunar Hyperdunk+ in the ‘World Basketball Festival’ colorway. More of this amazing composition below, so take a look!
