Nike Zoom Hyperdunk 2011 – Blake Griffin PE

words // Brandon Richard

This past February, NBA Rookie of the Year Blake Griffin debuted the Nike Zoom Hyperdunk 2011 during the NBA All-Star Game, where he was the first rookie selected to play since Yao Ming in 2003. With his aerial style of play, Blake has become the face of the Hyperdunk line and finished out the season wearing different Player Exclusive colorways. We’ve already seen his All-Star “10.0” PE colorway release back in August – now you can pick up his Los Angeles Clippers-inspired pair at Eastbay today.

Griffin’s new PE features a predominantly Treasure Blue upper with white Swoosh branding on the quarter panels. Sport Red works the upper portion of the tongue and a camouflage print along the inner liner. Blue returns to finish off the midsole and translucent outsole, which reveals additional camouflage print on the underside.

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.
