The Champion’s Choice: The Nike React Hyperdunk 2017 Flyknit

Worn by champion Draymond Green, the Nike React Hyperdunk 2017 Flyknit delivers comfort, support and the responsive energy return of all-new proprietary Nike React cushioning platform.

Since its debut in 2008, the Hyperdunk has become the epitome of Nike Basketball design. In each of its iterations, the silhouette has simultaneously flexed fresh innovation and stood as the brand’s purest expression of a basketball shoe. The Nike React Hyperdunk 2017 Flyknit extends the legacy, advancing the proposition with a sleek, minimalistic aesthetic approach that result in a modern take on a classic look.

Starting from the bottom, the Nike React Hyperdunk 2017 Flyknit is rooted by an outsole with a data-informed traction pattern that synthesizes pressure maps from the Nike Sports Research Lab to ensure a supportive base, highlighted by circular pistons, tuned to offer traction exactly where needed. Encapsulated within, a Nike React core serves up an unprecedented trio of benefits: it’s lightweight, responsive and durable. A shank plate, situated between the Nike React cushioning and the shoes outsole, creates rigidity and manages torque.Translated to basketball, these collected benefits buttress quick cuts, smooth lift-off and sustained play. “This shoe is lightweight, it has a resilience in it. It has the bounce for sprinting and moving around just like I want to,” notes Green.

The Flyknit upper, providing target stretch and breathability, follows a familiar ‘80s style topline with a contemporary material twist. Like the Nike React foam, which is both soft and springy, the Flyknit upper balances a best-of-both-worlds aesthetic that recalls icons of the past in stance while simultaneously casting a cutting-edge nod to the future. Of note is the subtly decoupled collar, which allows for natural mobility and customizable fit.

When the Nike React Hyperdunk 2017 Flynkit launches August 3, it comes complete with an undeniable, championship pedigree.

“To be the first to wear the latest Hyperdunk…to win a title in it…means the world to me,” says Green.
