Who should buy the Nike Hyperdunk 2014
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. This pair is a definite choice for you if:
- You're a Hyperdunk fanatic and you'd still consider this shoe as the best even years later.
- You're looking for the best ankle and arch support because of your slightly wide feet.
Hyperdunk 2014's midsole structure
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.
Durable outsole setup of Nike Hyperdunk
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.
Great secure 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.
Upper construction of Hyperdunk 2014
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.
Nike Hyperdunk 2014's incredible aesthetic
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.
