The Hyperfuse has been stealing the show in the realm of Nike Basketball lately, thanks in part to NBA All-Star Rajon Rondo’s recent playoff performances. Still, the Air Max Hyped deserves some shine, thanks to its simple lines and performance-first design. This colorway was spotted today and should release later this year.
It seems strange to see a Nike hoops shoe without Flywire, but the Air Max heel and high cut of this design could result in a serious performer. Red pearlescent leather is sued for the upper, pairing with mock red carbon fiber. White and silver work as accent on various areas throughout.
