Nike Lunar Hyperdunk+ – Wolf Grey – Black

The Lunar Hyperdunk launched globally in late June, but we’re still getting a nice channel of new colorways that continue to build up the hype – like this brand new Wolf Grey/Black colorway. The matte finish paired with the Wolf Grey paintjob give these Hyperdunks a supremely ‘futuristic’ appeal – almost like a variant to the space-travel themed ‘Galaxy’ releases in February. It’s likely we’ll see Tony Parker and/or Manu Ginobili wear these come the 2012-13 NBA Season as it fits right in with San Antonio’s threads, but we’ll have to wait as both players will be representing their home countries of France and Argentina, respectively, in the coming Olympic Games. More views of this great new colorway below, so take a look and cop now at Sneakersnstuff overseas.

Nike World Basketball Festival Dunk Contest Recap

July 16th, 2012 by | 5 comments

nike world basketball festival dunk contest Nike World Basketball Festival Dunk Contest Recap

One of the amazing features of the new Nike+ Basketball Technology allows athletes to measure vertical leaps. Quite the useful feature if you’re a world-class slam-dunk extraordinaire, so when the Nike World Basketball Festival featured a special Dunk Contest after the New York vs. Los Angeles game, Nike+ Basketball tech came in full focus as each participant displayed unparalleled levels of mid-air acrobatics. If the contest came to a tie, the tie-breaker would be the dunker’s vertical leap, but that did not come to play as Justin ‘Jus Fly’ Darlington’ of ┬áLos Angeles (who hails from Ontario, Canada), left the crowd speechless with a jaw-dropping display of slam dunks.

Jus Fly started things off by jumping over a power forward and snatching the ball from his hands while in flight and reverse-jamming the ball through the hoop, and later cemented his win with a cartwheel between-the-legs jaw-dropper that left judges LeBron James, Anthony Davis, Diana Taurasi, and Bobbito Garcia without words. Darlington’s Dunk Contest win last night was another notch in his belt of accomplishments, who won nearly ever dunk contest he’s ever participated in (roughly 60!). If you want to measure your own vertical, check out the Nike+ Basketball technology in the all-new Nike Lunar Hyperdunk+ Sport Pack (available right now at Nikestore) and flip through the recap and quick interview with Dunk Contest winner Justin ‘Jus Fly’ Darlington below.

Nike World Basketball Festival: Washington D.C. – Day 1 Recap

July 13th, 2012 by | 3 comments

nike world basketball festival barry farm Nike World Basketball Festival: Washington D.C.   Day 1 Recap

In 2010, Nike launched the inaugural World Basketball Festival as a celebration of the past, present, and future of the sport. Taking place in New York City, the ‘mecca’ that many consider the beating heart of the game in its purest form, the World Basketball Festival captured the global and local influence of the game as the world’s best teams competed in the 2010 FIBA Tournament. Two years later, basketball will reach the pinnacle of international sports competition as the quadrennial Olympic Games touch down later this month, so in celebration of this momentous affair, Nike brought back the World Basketball Festival at a much larger scale, setting up shop in four major basketball-centric cities. Sneaker News was invited out to the World Basketball Festival to experience the game in Washington D.C., a city with its own feverish hotbed of basketball talent, and the first order of business was the make a stop at none other than the legendary court in Barry Farms, located in the Southeast of the Nation’s Capitol.

Upon arrival at the local landmark, the native atmosphere instantly fell upon the court; hundreds of locals piled in to watch their hometown Goodman League champion squad face off against the visiting Team Nike from New York City, but this Friday evening event was clearly more than just a game of hoops – it proved to be an unbreakable, bond-strengthening tradition that bled D.C. heart and boasted the rock-solid sense of community. The game was announced by local legend Miles, who manned the microphone and provided the jokes and jabs while keeping the crowd in order, and somehow the intense battle that was going down on the court was no match for the infectious positivity in the crowd. Even a surprise visit from hometown hero Kevin Durant and his Team USA/OKC Thunder running-mate James Harden didn’t seem to stun the crowd too much – he was embraced less like a prodigal son who made the occasional return home, but like a familiar face who never forgot his roots.

Onto the game: Team Nike and the hometown Goodman squad played fiercely from tip-off, with the crowd cheering with gusto and gumption for it’s D.C. bred stars like The Destroyer and ‘Ray Lewis’. The Barry Farm crowd, who welcomed Team Nike and the visiting media with open arms, didn’t allow its visiting competitors to come and go as they pleased; courtside regulars traded friendly blows with ’2 Hard 2 Guard’ as well as former NBA pro and NY native Kenny Satterfield in a semi-heated back and forth that only fueled the intensity of the contest. The game went down to a final game-tying attempt by the New York squad, but Washington D.C. came out on top after a long and hard battle; even after a loss, both teams shared smiles and congratulatory handshakes, commending each other for playing with their hearts and putting on yet another legendary show. Getting a healthy sample of local basketball flavor was the perfect way to kick off the Nike World Basketball Festival, but tomorrow, the Festival continues on a larger scale with Team USA running drills with members of the Armed Forces, Converse celebrating with an amazing Block Party, and a special appearance by Jordan Brand’s biggest stars at one of the area’s most respected retailers. This is just the beginning of what’s shaping up to be the perfect glorification of the game, so stay tuned for continuing coverage of the Nike World Basketball Festival in Washington D.C. throughout the weekend.

Team USA vs. Dominican Republic

July 13th, 2012 by | 6 comments

team usa vs dominican republic Team USA vs. Dominican Republic

Could this year’s USA Olympic men’s basketball team beat the 1992 Dream Team? Of course we’ll never get final word on that impossible but question but for what it’s worth a team of ESPN analysts did run 1,000 computer simulations to test the question, giving the 1992 team the victory 53.1 percent of the time by an average of one point. The thing is though that they don’t have to play the 1992 Dream Team, so we now arrive at the much simpler question: Can Team USA beat the current crop of international players? Last night’s exhibition match, the first time the team has played for a full game together so far, offered up a resounding “yes”.

Team USA beat the Dominican Republic with an impressive 113-59, all the while doing so in a killer crop of patriotic sneakers. Kevin Durant was the clear cut best performer, grabbing 24 points and 10 rebounds in that pending red, white, and blue version of the Nike Zoom KD IV. Kobe Bryant was also spotted in his USA flavored release of the Nike Zoom Kobe VII. The third piece of Nike Basketball’s puzzle was of course laced up in something beyond his own line for the first time in quite a while, with LeBron being the on-court spokesperson of sorts for the all new Nike Lunar Hyperdunk+. Beyond that Team USA also had Chris Paul in the Jordan CP3.V, Carmelo Anthony in an unseen Jordan Melo M8, and a host of others in various Hyperdunk and Hyperfuse iterations. Of course we’d be remiss to not touch on the footwear of the Dominican Republic team, who sported some similar red, white, and blue colorways of models like the Nike Zoom Hyperfuse 2011 and the Nike Lunar Hyperdunk+. Stay with us after the jump for an extensive gallery featuring the likes of these modern day greats putting on for the USA for the first time this Summer and keep it here for more sneaker recaps from the Olympic stage.
