2008 brought hoopers a much necessary installment of a brand new Nike Basketball footwear line, named the Hyperdunk. Eleven years later, the beloved Hyperdunk series is now being rebranded to the all new Nike Alpha Dunk.
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, stated 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.
