Nike hyperdunk low
PostedDecember 12, 2010

I bought these kicks originally as a replacement for my regular sneakers but after seeing that the colourway (snake pool) looked pretty weird as just regular sneakers, I decided to use them as my next set of basketball kicks. They fit me really well, a nice snug sort of feel to the interior (not as tight or snug as the Kobe iv's) but definitely well-fitted. Great lateral support but the lock-down could be improved as I've found that despite lacing them up as tightly as possible, my foot still seems to slip a bit in the shoe during play, especially at the heel. The low-cut sacrifices no ankle support as I have not once had a problem with my ankles while wearing these kicks. Also, the shoe seems to look a little large but not run large for some reason. I don't know why. Oh, and the traction is pretty good. Only occasionally does it ever loose grip on the court (could be improved by traditional herringbone traction) and the light-weight design makes me feel as though I'm wearing little on my feet. Also, the Nike logo on the inside of the shoe tends to peel early, but unless that bothers you, it shouldn't matter. But that snake pool colourway I bought definitely got a number of heads turning.
Pros: light-weight, lateral support, snake pool colourway, low-cut ankle suport
Cons: lock-down, traction

Attack fast and Attack strong inserts?

I know the description says that the shoe contains both attack fast and attack strong inserts, but I looked on the Internet and can't find any site that talks about an attack strong insert. I was just wondering if the description is right or it was just a glitch.
