The latest addition to Nike’s famed ‘Hyper’ basketball footwear lineup is the brand new Hyper Quickness.
At the base of the Hyper Quickness is Hyperfuse construction, which creates a nearly seamless one-piece upper for lightweight support, breathability and durability. Cutouts along the upper also enhance ventilation, while the midfoot harness integrates with the laces to provide a lockdown fit. A large-volume Zoom unit in the forefoot makes for a lightweight, responsive cushioning and low-profile feel. For more cushioning and lateral stability, a lightweight injected Phylon midsole supports the ride.
A partial inner sleeve made of sandwich mesh provides a seamless feel and enhanced ventilation. The shoe’s basketball-specific herringbone pattern gives the wearer aggressive traction. Deep flex grooves on the heel and forefoot enhance natural motion.
These Nike basketball shoes are now available in Black/Dark Grey-Metallic Silver, University Red/Black-Dark Grey and Tropical Teal/Sonic Yellow-Wolf Grey.
