The game of basketball has spread an infectious desire of unity on a global level, and last year, Nike Basketball teamed up with Jordan Brand and Converse Basketball to present the World Basketball Festival, a celebration of the sport that has made an impact on a number of countries. This Friday, Nike Basketball will release a special pack of the Nike Zoom Hyperdunk 2010 titled the ‘Make Something’ Collection, featuring five country-specific colorways ornately designed with iconic imagery of each nation. The stars and stripes don the U.S. version, while decorative feathers detail to toe of the Brazil colorway. With each of the five colorways is an accompanying Nike Sportwear Destroyer varsity jacket, which also features select patches and logos on the chest, back, and sleeves.

Potentially a sleeper collector’s item and most definitely a puzzlingly timed release, you can see the whole run of national Hyperdunk 2010s after the jump.
