Lamarcus Aldridge’s Nike Air Max Hyperdunk 2010 PE has been one of the highlights of NBA Feet for the 2011 Playoffs, but did you know it was designed by a group of youths? Earlier this year, Nike donated a unique opportunity – the chance to design a Lamarcus Aldridge Nike Basketball PE – to the Hoops And Heart Fundraiser. Who won the auction? Charlie Denson, who happens to be the president of Nike. He then donated the design experience to St. Mary’s Home For Boys, where four young men were given the once-in-a-lifetime session to work with Aldridge and Nike designer Kyle Yamaguchi to pick out the Home and Away colorways of the Nike Air Max Hyperdunk 2010 for Aldridge to wear in the Playoffs. The two designs feature the diamond graphic on the upper, with the Home featuring a metallic silver base and the Away using a black base. Check out the video of the entire process here as take a look at some in-game shots of the sneakers after the jump and let us know what you think.

Down 0-2, the Portland Trail Blazers were slowly reaching panic mode as an early Playoff exit appeared to be in the books. LaMarcus Aldridge took it upon himself to change his teams fate, and dropped a sweet Andrew Jackson on the Mavericks and pulled out a W to pull the series deficit a bit closer. During Game 3, you might’ve caught Aldridge’s Air Max Hyperdunk 2010 PE in Silver and Red, but check out this equally astounding Black/Red PE that L-Smooth wore during the Away games; it features a black/red upper with the sleek graphic seen on previous Hyperdunk 2010 release, and the ankle strap combined with the 360 Max Air is the perfect support for the Texas-alumn. In fact, his tonal-red PE from the regular season might be the best Nike Basketball PE from the entire 2010-11 campaign. Can Aldridge help the Blazers pull even? Check out his AMHD ’10 PE below and let us know what you think, and stick with Sneaker News for more Nike Basketball updates and news.
