Kay Yow x Nike Hyperdunk 2011 Now Available

words // Nick Engvall

Earlier this week the Kay Yow x Nike Zoom Soldier V arrived at Eastbay and today the Nike Hyperdunk 2011 that was created in collaboration with the Kay Yow Cancer Fund has arrived. These two silhouettes are the latest colorways in a steadily growing line of pink basketball shoes that are created with KYCF and Nike Basketball.

The Nike Hyperdunk 2011 is one of the most anticipated designs for 2011. It builds on the previous models of the Hyperdunk and includes Flywire technology, and a phylon midsole with forefoot Zoom Air cushioning, that together help keep the weight to an impressive 10.5 ounces. A 3D reinforced midfoot shank helps keep flex to a minimum when making sharp cuts. The herringbone pattern of the solid rubber outsole resides below and provides the traction.

Here we have another closer look at a new colorway of the Nike Zoom Soldier IV, designed by Leo Chang and featuring heel Max Air and forefoot Zoom Air.

Worn by LeBron James during his off-season workouts and during the upcoming NBA preseason, it’s the first in the Soldier series to feature Max Air and also includes a new emphasis on LeBron’s Lion logo.

It’s already certainly been a summer of change for LeBron James, and for the first time in his career, his Zoom Soldier line is also experiencing quite a few changes of its own. After three straight years of heel and forefoot Zoom Air cushioning setups, I guess you could say the decision has been made to go a different direction, as the Zoom Soldier IV features an entirely new cushioning platform by introducing Air Max.

Along with a heel large-volume Air Max unit and forefoot Zoom Air bag for maximum cushioning, Flywire is also introduced into the Soldier series for the first time along the midfoot strap. It’s also the first LeBron sneaker to go sans his now retired “LJ23” logo, as Nike Basketball will begin to more prominently feature his Lion crest logo. Designed by Nike Basketball Senior Designer Leo Chang and retailing at $110, the Zoom Solider IV is out now in nine total colorways. Enjoy a detailed look below at the Cool Grey/ White/ Varsity Royal version.
