Good to know
Created by now retired designer, Peter Fogg, the HyperRev 2015 is the second release in the HyperRev series. Deviating completely from the 2014’s silhouette, the shoe utilizes a multi-directional herringbone tread pattern on the outsole, two Zoom Air units at the forefoot and the heel, and a neoprene cleatie with Hyperfuse overlays for a supportive fit.
Cushion. The shoe’s cushioning system is composed of two Zoom Air units embedded in a Phylon midsole. The unit at the heel is a standard-sized Zoom, while the forefoot unit is a rectangular Zoom.
Traction. The rubber outsole on the Nike Zoom HyperRev 2015 uses a slightly altered multidirectional herringbone pattern. The tread pattern provides a steady grip on dusty or clean courts and works especially well on outdoor courts. The rubber, however, is soft and pliable. To lengthen the outsole’s usable life, using the shoe only on indoor courts is recommended.
Length and Width. The shoe fits true to size. It is recommended to go with your standard Nike basketball shoe size. For wide footers, the upper can feel a little snug and could be a pain to put on; they are advised to check their local shoe store if the HyperRev 2015 fits them well.
Lockdown. Due to the shoe’s one piece neoprene cleatie upper, the HyperRev 2015 hugs the foot tightly, ensuring a glove-like fit. The Dynamic Flywire works in tandem with the extended heel counter and padded ankle area to provide stability and lockdown.
The HyperRev 2015 has a one-piece neoprene inner cleatie to provide the tight and sock-like fit that many want. For breathability, a screen mesh is used on the inner cleatie’s tongue. The external layer, on the other hand, is made of a three-layer Hyperfuse material that gives durable and lightweight support for the inner cleatie. Fuse overlays are added on high-wear areas such as the lace loops and toe rand.
A molded TPU heel counter extends from the base of the heel to the tongue, locking down the foot from the heel to the ankle. Flywire technology is also integrated with the shoe’s lacing system.
Two Zoom Air units are encased in a Phylon midsole. The outsole is made out of soft and pliable rubber.
What gives the HyperRev 2015 its personality is the eccentric heel cage that extends from the heel to the front ankle. This shape is similar to the nature-inspired detailing that Peter Fogg incorporates into his past works with the ACG (All Conditions Gear) Nike shoes.
The HyperRev 2015 has more than twelve available colorways since its release. The most popular ones are the shoes with either black, blue, white or red color. There have been releases, however, that took inspiration from basketball culture like the ones below.
Nike Zoom HyperRev 2015 Think Pink
In honor of the late Sandra Kay Yow, an American basketball coach and a Naismith Hall of Famer, the Nike Zoom HyperRev 2015 Think Pink was released in 2015 to commemorate her death and bring awareness about the Kay Yow Cancer Fund. The shoe features a variety of pink shades on the upper, a metallic silver Nike swoosh, and a black midsole and heel cage.
Nike Zoom HyperRev 2015 Net Collectors Society
Inspired by the tradition of cutting up the basketball net after a big win during the NCAA Championship, The Nike Zoom HyperRev 2015 Net Collectors Society’s upper takes from the team colors of the winning universities and arranges it abstractly in the heel area. The heel cage is made of translucent TPU that is speckled with silver, while the whole upper is composed of a black mesh with fuse overlays.
