Already one of Nike Basketball’s most highly anticipated models this summer, the Nike Zoom Hyperfuse, seen this week on the feet of several NBA stars during Team USA’s training camp, is finally nearing its release. Designed by Leo Chang, the Hyperfuse features an entirely new bonded layer construction method that offers increased breathability, and we’ll see the approach extending to other categories as well, such as Nike Training.

One of the most discussed versions is certainly this bright and bold Retro/ Sport Red- Black version seen below. Priced at $100, the Hyperfuse features both a heel and forefoot lateral support outrigger, forefoot Zoom Air and Nike’s new zonal padded tongue construction. Be sure to check back for exclusive renderings and an extensive interview with designer Leo Chang.
