The upcoming professional basketball season for the NBA is still in question due to the current lockout but, thankfully, for sneaker aficionados and amateur hoopers, basketball shoes will continue on with or without the pros. Nike Basketball has redesigned the popular Zoom Hyperfuse as a new 2011 edition.
The Nike Zoom Hyperfuse 2011 uses Fuse technology to create a breathable and lightweight upper, combined with Zoom Air cushioning and a phylon midsole, to create a responsive and performance packed shoe. A solid rubber outsole provides durability, while the herringbone traction pattern and forefoot outrigger handle traction duties for those quick cuts to the basket. This particular colorway comes in an “Iguana” finish with Max Orange detailing that gives it a militaristic feel.
