Challenge Red Hyperdunk Nike Shoes For Basketball
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Have you picked up a pair of the new Nike Hyperfuse 2011 yet? If not, right now just might be the time to do it. This shoe was originally released in 2008 and each year has become more and more popular. When it was originally released, the Hyperdunk was the lightest basketball shoe on the market. It weighed in at 13 ounces and was lighter that most running shoes. It was definitely light years ahead of the competition. Although the competition has since caught up and is producing much lighter shoes than the Hyperdunk, this shoe still remains one of the most popular basketball shoes in the marketplace.

The reason it has is due to the performance refinements that the Nike design team has made each year since the shoes inception 3 years ago. The refinements this year have been made primarily to the shoe's upper. Lead by Leo Chang, the shoe's designer, the Nike design team focused on improving the fit of the shoe. Specifically the last of the shoe. In the past the Hyperdunk was outfitted with a QF-8 last. This last has typically been used on leather and synthetic uppers. This year the Hyperdunk is fitted with a BB-03 which is much better for the thin composite Flywire material that allows for more volume in a basketball shoe. As a result, the new last used in the shoe provides a better fit and actually conforms to the foot much better regardless of the it's size. Another benefit to the new last used in this year's Hyperdunk is increased breathability. The Nike Hyperdunk has definitely improved it's performance standards over the last three years.

Technology aside, the aesthetics of the Hyperdunk 2011 have never looked better. The silhouette is greatly improved and the number of different colorways that this shoe is available in is quite remarkable. One of the standout colorways is the Challenge Red/Black/White/Pine Green. Challenge Red is used on the shoes upper and a small portion of the midsole. The Phylon midsole and heel cage are done in a clean White. The Swoosh and outsole feature Black while the shoe is finished off nicely with Pine Green taking care of the laces and inner lining. This is a color scheme that really pops on a shoe like the Hyperdunk.

The Hyperdunk has steadily become one of the best and most popular pairs of Nike shoes for basketball. It has improved it's perfomance design standards each year from it's first edition back in 2008. It may not be the lightest basketball shoe on the market anymore, but the Hyperdunk 2011 is most certainly one of the best.
