We’ve seen plenty of cases where sneaker releases are slightly different than their initial preview images, but this phenomenon seems uniquely correlated with the use of Nike Hyperfuse construction. Perhaps it’s the heat bonding process that can allow various gradients, that serves as the catalyst to the kind of swapping we saw with the first Air Max 1 Hyperfuses — the ability to change a shoe drastically by swapping out one layer would make any designer grin when imagining the possibilities. And that’s exactly what’s happened with the black and Photo Blue Nike Air Shox Hyperballer, a model we saw about a month ago in a decidedly bluer getup. In this final version, there’s quite a bit more black and no extension of the blue tonality, which leaves you with a much starker aesthetic.
