The Nike Hyperdunks are not signature shoes of any athlete, but they are hailed as the signature shoes of Nike Basketball itself because of their undeniable success on and off the court. The first Hyperdunk sneakers were released in 2008, and no less than the great Kobe Bryant helped propel them to greatness. The Hyperdunk 2008 also made an appearance in the Beijing Summer Olympics in the same year.
Lightweight support is the key offering of the Hyperdunk line. Of course, this is not to say that other aspects are lacking. In fact, the Hyperdunk 2017 is celebrated also for its effective use of the React foam, a proprietary technology prevalent only in Nike running shoes at that time.
According to Nike, the Hyperdunk line was the springboard for athletes who are about to get their own signature kicks. Kyrie Irving and Paul George once had player exclusives from the line.
The Hyperdunk X, the last of its kind, was released in 2018. A year after, the Nike Alphadunk, which is said to be a direct descendant of the illustrious Hyperdunks, started a new chapter for Nike Basketball.
Getting Nike Hyperdunks
Getting Hyperdunks from 2018 and earlier is going to be a challenge because they are not widely available anymore. Good thing RunRepeat has data from a wide array of online stores, and we can give you email updates once a particular Hyperdunk shoe is made available by one or more of our partner retailers. We present this in such a way that it's easy for you to compare prices.
