Nike’s Hyperfuse was a wildly popular shoe last season and in the precursor to the season, the 2010 World Basketball Championships. While a million dudes wore the shoes across the NBA and every other level of hoops this past year, there’s always one player that comes to mind when I think of the Hyperfuse. That man is Rajon Rondo.

Rondo’s PE Hyperfuse has been so distinctive over the last year, that in my mind at least, he’s the unofficial ambassador of the sneaker. Nike is looking to keep it that way in 2011-12 (provided it gets here), with this road version of the HF 2011.
