Kicks Updated: Nike Hyperfuse 2011 NOT Available

by Chris O’Leary/@olearychris

Update:

TGIF’d over? Probably not. It looks like someone at Nike made an honest mistake and put the Hyperfuse 2011 up a tad early. The late summer release stands and this morning’s post? Let’s just pretend it didn’t happen.

What can we take away from this? Well, we’ve got one new colorway to look at on what’s promising to be a ridiculously popular shoe this year.

Take a look at the white/metallic luster-wolf grey-volt/team red makeup of the Hyperfuse 2011 and decide if you want to add it to your sneaker wishlist for the coming basketball season (NBA not necessarily included). The breakdown of the shoe is stll below, with the info coming from Nike.

We got the info and images via CounterKicks.

The Nike Zoom Hyperfuse: Seamless court support

Built to withstand the hard cuts and landings of intense hardwood battles, the Nike Zoom Hyperfuse 2011 Men’s Basketball Shoe is the pinnacle of durability and lightweight comfort. Advanced cushioning and a high-tech construction provide the impact-absorption and support required to take over the game with confidence and control.

Benefits

-Hyperfuse upper for ultra-lightweight durability and breathability

-Nike Zoom for low-profile cushioning and lightweight performance

-Rubber outsole with herringbone pattern for durability and multidirectional traction

Design

Hyperfuse construction on the upper is a composite of three different layers of material fused together using a pressing process to create a nearly seamless upper that is lightweight, breathable and durable. The first layer is made of synthetic underlays strategically placed for support, the second layer is made of single layer mesh for ventilation, and the top layer is made of a thin layer of TPU that is placed in high-wear areas for durability.

Cushioning

Three aspects of impact-resistance are represented in the Nike Zoom Hyperfuse 2011, starting with foam padding in the collar for an enhanced fit in the heel. Second, a high-wrapping injected Phylon midsole is lighter than regular Phylon and extends up the side to supply lightweight cushioning and lateral stability. Finally, the Nike Zoom unit in the forefoot provides low-profile cushioning and lasting comfort under foot.


Support

Confidence in ability depends on confidence in equipment. The Nike Zoom Hyperfuse 2011 has an internal midfoot shank that offers torsional rigidity and support from baseline to baseline. Outriggers on the heel and forefoot combine for lateral stability when making quick cuts and jumps.

Additional Details

-Injected Phylon midsole with high-wrap design for lightweight cushioning and lateral stability

-Outsole flex grooves for enhanced flexibility and a smooth, efficient stride

-Split in heel helps evenly distribute pressure from impact for enhanced comfort

    It’s amazing how a certain colorway can make or break a shoe. Because I know these shoes aren’t as terrible as they look here. Damn.

    I saw a guy yesterday at the playgrounds who had one of these. Probably got it from Nike itself. They look much better in blue with some white.
