Ever since its introduction in 2008, the Nike Hyperdunk has set the precedent for the look and feel of a basketball sneaker. This year's model is no different, as its lightweight feel and superior cushioning set the bar for what a basketball shoe should be.

With summer here, Nike set out to make a shoe that was versatile for both indoor and outdoor play. The result is a shoe that stands the heat and breathability needs of summer basketball thanks to a Hyperfuse constructed upper. Lunarlon cushioning makes for a smooth ride while Flywire technology provides lockdown supper throughout the midfoot.

The Hyperdunk 2014 will be available online and in-stores beginning July 16.
