Nike Basketball will introduce two versions of the Nike Hyperdunk 2016. One will feature engineered mesh while the second, which is what many are looking forward to, is the Nike Hyperdunk Flyknit 2016.
Specifically, the latest iteration of the Nike Hyperdunk 2016 attempts to harmonize the basketball uniform’s numerous elements. “Right now, the uniform is a little chopped up,” explains Chang. “You’ve got layers that maybe aren’t streamlined. This is what an element of a featured system should look like: a tight, a sock, a shoe blended into one.”
And, with that, the shoe more smoothly connects to the current cohesiveness of off-court trends. “The guys are asking for something they grew up with, too,” Chang says. “When they were kids, they were able to cross those lines of on the court off the court — it’s a cultural thing for basketball for sure.”
The Nike Hyperdunk Fyknit 2016 released today, June 27th, 2016 at NikeLab retailers.
