The 2011 Nike basketball shoes have started to arrive. New versions of the popular Hyperdunk and Hyperfuse models feature updated details for 2011. For the Hyperdunk, 2011 will be its third year at the forefront of performance basketball shoes, while the Zoom Hyperfuse, after being introduced last year, is improved and ready for the court in its sophomore edition.

The Nike Zoom Hyperfuse 2011 utilizes a seamless construction to attach the breathable mesh and synthetic upper together. A combination of phylon and Zoom Air cushioning in the forefoot provide responsiveness, while the herringbone pattern on the solid rubber outsole provides traction. For the Hyperdunk 2011, the Flywire upper gets improved fitment that conforms to the foot better and a more breathable mesh. One of the biggest changes for the Hyperdunk 2011 is an improved shank plate that keeps flexing to a minimum.

The latest Nike basketball shoes continue to push the performance envelope with some of Nike’s most popular technologies. This year’s edition of the Nike Zoom Hyperfuse aims to improve on two key elements, breathability and durability. With the way the original Nike Zoom Hyperfuse performed, the 2011 model has a lot to live up to.

The Nike Zoom Hyperfuse 2011 features a lightweight and breathable upper comprised of Hyperfuse technology, which fuses together a mesh and synthetic upper together without traditional stitching. This reduces weight and increases breathability at the same time. For cushioning, a combination of Phylon and forefoot Zoom Air rests between you and the herringbone traction pattern of the solid rubber outsole. The Nike Zoom Hyperfuse 2011 weighs in at just 12.4 ounces despite a slightly higher ankle cut than the previous model.
