The Nike AlphaDunk is a new performance basketball shoe from Nike which will make its debut during Summer 2019.
Its DNA carries strands from the Hyperdunk line, which has defined Nike Basketball innovation since its launch in 2008. The AlphaDunk features Zoom Air and Flyknit along with a Zoom Air bag in the forefoot, the highest stacked Zoom to date.
So far we have one color option to showcase which comes dressed in Black, Blue and White. In addition this pair will feature a new knit construction known as AirKnit. In addition we have Zoom cushioning along with a double stacked Zoom unit in the heel and forefoot.
“The AlphaDunk began from a study in jump height,” says Ross Klein, Senior Creative Design Director for Nike Basketball. “We began to consider what would happen if we bring our most responsive technology, Zoom Air, to the entire forefoot to cover the full motion of a jump, from load to launch. What could it do?’’
Meanwhile, the ankle structure is designed to keep that power base firmly in place. The lacing and containment is all tuned to harness power toward launch.
