Video reviews and unboxing

Move freely and dominate both ends of the floor every time you lace up these Nike basketball shoes. The Nike Lunar Hyperquickness is made for players who move at break-neck speed. It makes fast breaks and quick movements a breeze with its lightweight Hyperfuse upper and a low-profile Lunarlon cushioning.

Cushion. These Nike basketball shoes are equipped with a full-length Lunarlon midsole that delivers a plush feel underfoot.

Traction. The outsole features a modified herringbone traction pattern that enhances multidirectional grip. Flex grooves along the forefoot enable more natural motion for increased court feel.

Length and Width. Reviewers are reporting that the Nike Lunar Hyperquickness fits true to size but is a bit snug. They recommend going up half a size if you prefer having some wiggle room.

Lockdown. The Nike Lunar Hyperquickness is equipped with a traditional lace-up closure that provides an adjustable fit and ensures midfoot lockdown.

These Nike basketball shoes are constructed with a combination of mesh, synthetic, and foam with Hyperfuse. This construction maximizes breathability without sacrificing support and durability. The lightweight upper is also designed to promote more natural foot movement.

The Nike Lunar Hyperquickness shares a similar silhouette and tooling with the Nike Zoom HyperRev except for one major difference:  the Hyperquickness utilizes a full-length Lunarlon midsole instead of the Zoom Air unit used in the HyperRev.

A large Swoosh is visible on the lateral side while the shoe’s name is seen on the tongue.
