Donned and debuted by Draymond Green in route to his second NBA Championship, the Nike REACT Hyperdunk 2017 Flyknit was officially unveiled to a group of media at Jordan Brand’s Terminal 23 space.
Introducing REACT foam, the model makes the most of a minimal but focused design driven by durability and comfort. Aesthetically, a full Flyknit upper carries on the composition introduced to the line on last year’s elevated edition, wrapping all around the foot from the ankle collar to the ventilated tongue. The most striking detail comes in a shimmering finish on the toe box adding a touch of flash to the otherwise business first basketball shoe.
As acknowledged before, this is the first Nike Basketball shoe to feature REACT foam. Filling out the entire footbed, the new cushioning system is minimal in nature much like Zoom Air but is focused on maximizing energy return and offering a springy feel throughout long summer runs. Said foam resides beneath a perforated insole with a wavy outsole bringing about articulated traction.
