Remember the online spot that featured a gleeful Ronny Turiaf congratulating Kobe Bryant after the Mamba cleared an Aston Martin in the new Nike Hyperdunk? A sample Hyperdunk dedicated to the clever commercial recently emerged from the depths of sneaker obscurity. Toned in silver foil/mahogany hues, the shoe features the Aston hood ornament as a lacelock. Kobe in “pre-jump” posture is embossed on the tongue, and the progression of his leap for all of mankind is fastidiously tracked on the model’s leather insole. For now, you can expect the Nike Hyperdunk “Aston Martin” to stay locked away in the sample room.
