It's a very good performer; grab it if you can.
I would definitely recommend this shoe; it does play very nicely.
It’s pretty much self-explanatory for the most part. You like that extra material covering your ankles – grab the high-top version. Or maybe you’re seeking for that mobility/freedom/lightness as one package with well-rounded performance – look nowhere further than the Lows. Either way, you go home as a winner.
It's a really great performer so I will recommend it.
Now, the Hyperdunk line is know to many as Nike's staple shoe
Lightweight shoe. Pretty stable.
The Nike Hyperdunk X Low’s upper is made of film-backed mesh except for the midfoot and tongue, which are made of neoprene. Its dynamic lacing system is reinforced with Flywire cables in order to provide a more secure fit. The midsole is made of phylon with two embedded Zoom units, one at the forefoot and another at the heel. The full length of the rubber outsole is covered with wavy lines that provide effective traction.
Cushion. The Hyperdunk X Low is able to provide responsive cushioning because of the Zoom Air units at the heel and forefoot. Nike Zoom Air is one of Nike’s most celebrated technologies. It is basically a set of tightly stretched tensile fibers inside a pressurized Nike Air unit. When pressure is applied, these tensile fibers compress and then immediately spring back to deliver explosive energy returns.
Traction. The rubber outsole of this Nike basketball shoe features wavy lines that run across its full length. This setup allows the wearer to stop on a dime when needed.
Length and Width. There are not too many reviews on how the Nike Hyperdunk 2018 Low fits. To be safe, would-be purchasers are advised to just go with their usual Nike sizes. It will still be better if they are able to try this pair on in a shoe store near them.
Lockdown. The low version of the tenth anniversary edition of the Hyperdunk series features a lace-up closure system. The shoelaces are held in place by loops, which are connected to the shoe’s Flywire cables that support the midfoot. These cables tighten the shoe’s grasp on the foot when the laces are tied.
The upper of the Nike Hyperdunk X Low is divided into three. The forefoot and the rear area are made of mesh with film backing. This setup makes these areas breathable. The midfoot and the tongue are made of neoprene–a material that effectively enhances these Nike basketball shoes’ flexibility and fit.
These low-top basketball shoes sport a non-gimmicky monochromatic appearance. As such, they are easy to pair with common clothing items such as long and short pants. They also look good with joggers and other activewear.
The low version of the tenth Hyperdunk comes in the following colors:
- Court Purple/Black/White
- Game Royal/White/Black
- Gorge Green/Black/White
- Team Red/Black/White
- Team Orange/Black/White
- University Blue/Black/White
- University Red/White/Black
- University Red/Midnight Navy/White/University Red
- White/College Navy
- White/Game Royal
- White/Team Red
- White/University Red
- Wolf Grey/Black/White
