Later this month and through the satrt of next, Nike Basketball is launching a limited edition set of the Hyperdunk 2017 Low to celebrate NYC, Chicago, Los Angeles, Manila, Madrid, and Beijing - six basketball capitals - in their own unique ways.
The NYC edition emphasis the competition between top talents of different neighborhoods, often seen in the Big Apple’s iconic street courts. The Chicago edition honors Saieed Ivey, a high-school basketball player who was murdered in 2014; it has a special call-out to “Failure Is Not An Option”, a city-wide mantra that ignites the elite level of play. LA comes in with a Drew League edition, with a color call-out to Orange County and Inland Empire. The concrete atmosphere of Manila’s Tenement Curt Taguig informs this Philippines-inspired design. Beijing’s edition shines bright with a tonal Emerald upper. Finally, the Madrid edition represents the heightened hoops activity that comes during sundown.
The Nike Hyperdunk 2017 Low, which features the new REACT cushion, supposedly to help assist in a quick first step (which I definitely need) will begin releasing today in the Madrid edition on the 20th. The remaining five release in August.
