Profile of the Nike Hyperdunk X

In 2008, Nike revolutionized the way non-signature models were made with the introduction of the Hyperdunk. Ten years later, the Hyperdunk line has continued to deliver high performance.

Nike’s flagship team model allows you to keep your head in the game. The Hyperdunk X boasts no-frills performance with its ¾-bootie design, dynamic lacing system, and wavy traction pattern.

Performance

Cushion. The Nike Hyperdunk 2018 is equipped with forefoot and heel Zoom Air units. This cushioning setup ensures a responsive ride.

Traction. These Nike basketball shoes are designed to deliver excellent on-court grip with its wavy traction pattern.

Fit

Length and Width. Reviewers are reporting that the Nike Hyperdunk X fits true to size. However, wide-footers are warned that the narrow forefoot may cause some pinching. Because of this, they suggest going up half a size for comfort.

Lockdown. The Hyperdunk X features a dynamic lacing system with oversized laces. The oversized laces wrap around the foot for a secure fit without hindering movement. At the midfoot, TPU wings enhance support and stability.

Material

The Hypedunk X has a textile upper for lightweight comfort. The plush woven jacquard upper also creates durability.

Style

These Nike basketball shoes feature a mid to high-cut style for enhanced ankle support. The Hyperdunk 2018 also boasts a stretchy ¾-bootie design for a snug fit and easy entry.

Other details include “HD” on the heels and the Swoosh logo on the TPU wings.
