words // Brandon Richard

Over the next two months, Nike Basketball will officially launch the next generations of their two flagship basketball performance sneakers, the Zoom Hyperdunk 2011 and Zoom Hyperfuse 2011. Both shoes have been created around the concepts of weight reduction, breathability, strength and innovation. The Hyperfuse 2011 features mesh-constructed zones for a fully-ventilated experience, while the Hyperdunk promises a secure ride with the use of Flywire supports and superior explosiveness with dual-Zoom cushioning units.

For a better understanding behind the design of both Nike basketball shoes, we hear from the men responsible for their existence. In this new video interview, Shane Kohatsu (Lead Basketball, Innovation Kitchen) and Leo Chang (Design Director) detail the features of both the Hyperdunk 2011 and Hyperfuse 2011. Chang gives you a feature-by-feature rundown of what exactly makes each shoe a must-have this summer. Check out the clip below.
