20 Designs That Changed The Game: Nike Air Hyperdunk

The Nike Air Hyperdunk started as a highly ambitious project. The "20 Designs That Changed The Game" series continues with a shoe that set the bar for many of the sneakers we see today. The Hyperdunk took two major innovations and applied them to the hardwood for the first time: Flywire technology and Lunarlon. Both provided stability and support for the beating that basketball can deliver to footwear. The inspiration of suspension bridges is what drove the design. For a shoe so ahead of its time, the creators were compelled to grab aesthetic cues from something that would speak to the technology. So the shoe was built from the ground up in the essence of the Nike MAG. [via Nike, Inc.]
