    Most of everything is the same as last year’s model while the traction and fit were downsides… two of my most important attributes.

    Overall, you have a good shoe. If you liked last year's model, then you should like these.

    A very versatile cushioning setup... Traction can be a bit weird sometimes.

    I highly recommend these to play ball in. It's just a good all-around shoe.

    I feel like this is a shoe that translates well with guards to even forwards and centers. It's just that good.

Debuting on Paul George’s feet on July 16, the Hyperdunk 2014 combines one-to-one fit, secure lockdown with comfortable and responsive cushioning through the Hyperfuse upper, Flywire technology, and the targeted Lunarlon foam.

Cushion. The Hyperdunk 2014 features targeted Lunarlon on the forefoot and heel area, providing the balance between impact protection and court feel. The special foam is encased within a Phylon midsole.

Traction. A pressure-mapped herringbone pattern is implemented on the shoe’s outsole. The Hyperdunk 2014’s tread grooves are thick and safe to be used outdoors. However, using the shoe exclusively or mostly indoors will undoubtedly lengthen the shoe’s durability.

Length and Width. The shoe fits true to size lengthwise. For players with narrow feet, it is recommended to visit your local shoe store to try on the Hyperdunk 2014 for a comfortable and snug fit.

Lockdown. The shoe’s fit is assisted at the front by the Flywire that is integrated with the Hyperdunk’s lacing system. The TPU heel counter and shank provide stability and support at the back, complementing the upper’s glove-like fit.

The shoe features Hyperfuse combined with open mesh in its upper. This is consistent with the other previous Hyperdunk models; however,  the 2014 is known to have some bulk removed in order to make the construction thinner, lighter, and more breathable. Flywire is also implemented on the shoe’s lacing system.

Lunarlon and Phylon and used on the midsole to provide responsive cushioning while a TPU heel counter and TPU shank are added for medial and heel support.

A play on different textures is what makes the Hyperdunk 2014 an eye-catcher. The geometric shapes in the open mesh areas of the upper and the compression ribs on the shoe’s midsole give the shoe a futuristic look, while the Hyperfuse on the upper adds a touch of the classic basketball sneaker feel.

Ever since its release, the Hyperdunk 2014 comes in more than twenty colorways. The basic colors of blue, black and red are available for purchase as team shoes.
