An Official Look at the Nike Alpha Dunk

An official look at the Nike Alpha Dunk.



After previously reporting the Nike Alpha Dunk in recent posts, we now have an official look at the Swoosh’s newest basketball silhouette.

New images reveal a much better look at brand new technology being introduced with this new silhouette. A nub traction pattern makes up the majority of the outsole, while a likely Phylon midsole encasing double stacked heel Zoom Air, and a full size forefoot Zoom Air bag completes the tooling of the shoes. Making up the upper is Nike’s new Air Knit technology, expected to be lighter and more breathable than their previous Flyknit innovation. An additional flywire cable lockdown system can be seen at the tongue. Completing the shoe is a large swoosh wrapping all the way from the lateral to medial sections of the shoe, while an embroidered “Flight” text finishes the shoe off at the heel.

A confirmed release date has yet to surface for Nike’s newest Alpha Dunk, but be sure to keep it locked here for updates on the Swoosh’s biggest moves this Summer. The Nike Alpha Dunk is expected to make its first on foot debut this Summer at the FIBA tournament on select Swoosh-endorsed athletes. Let us know what you think in the comments below.
