Are you a baller? I mean are you a true hardcore baller? A, got to play everyday, hardcore baller? Well, then perhaps you are a Hyperballer. And if that is the case, Nike has a shoe for you. The new Nike Air Shox Hyperballer has recently dropped and if you are as hardcore as you say you are, you need a pair of these shoes. Each and every innovative Nike technology was used in the making of this shoe. You name it, it’s got it.
The latest and greatest shoe technology that Nike has to offer is used on the upper of the Hyperballer. That’s right, Hyperfuse technology is featured here and does what it does best. It simply provides the ultimate in lightweight functionality, durability, and breathability that no other basketball shoe can offer. In addition, the form fitting function that this technology allows, provides for maximum stability. Hyperfuse technology seems to be showing up on every Nike shoe that is made for basketball. And for good reason. Every essential quality that a high performance basketball shoe needs is provided for by the Hyperfuse technology.
The cushioning on this shoe is second to none. Nike Shox technology is still around and still being used, specifically on the Hyperballer. This cushioning system, originally made popular by Vince Carter, continues to impress. In addition to the Nike Shox cushioning, this shoe also uses an encapsulated heel Air-Sole unit.
Yes, one of the best shoe technologies ever developed, Nike Air is used on the Hyperballer. First used in a Nike shoe in 1979, Nike Air technology is a “pressurized gas encapsulated in polyurethane.” Regardless of how this terminology is used to describe this technology, the bottom line is that it works. And it has worked for decades.
Technology aside, this is one sick looking shoe. Three separate Hyperfuse mesh panels are featured on the upper. The Swoosh is actually placed in the center portion of the midsole. The Nike Shox system and the Air-Sole unit take care of the heel portion of the midsole while a lightweight Phylon midsole finishes the shoe off. As is currently the case with all Nike shoes for basketball, this new Hyperballer is available in a multitude of colorways.
