While designing the Hyperdunk shoe, Eric Avar took design inspiration from a Nike concept shoe created in the late 80’s for movie character Marty McFly [played by Michael J. Fox] in the film Back to the Future II. The shoes were created through a licensing agreement with Universal Studios Consumer Products Group. To help introduce the Hyperdunk to the general public Nike designed a McFly Hyperdunk which released last July to much fanfare.
The Hypermax which is not the next version of the Hyperdunk but a similarly designed sneaker for the bigger men in basketball. Nike has decided to design a McFly Hypermax as well which we saw a short while back. The McFly Hyperdunk was designed with all the technology in place, the McFly Hypermax has been designed with a satin upper in place of the Flywire upper. No word on a release date just yet but we would assume this could be another Summer release. Via Sole Collector
