I purchased this product for:myself
I purchased this product:less than a month ago
The athletic skill level of the person using this product is:advanced
This product is primarily used/worn for:participating in a sport
I was eyeing for the Hyperdunk 2011 since 2-3 months ago. At first I was confused which one to choose between Hyperfuse n Hyperdunk 2011. I had the Hyperfuse 1st gen, and Hyperdunk 2010, but the Hyperdunks gave my pinky toes blisters. I was very afraid that the 2011s gonna do the same thing to my toes. I went to a local Nike store, tried those out. Man, I love them at my first try, and decided to order them straight away from Eastbay.. The fit is perfect, material is more flexible than 2010s, very comfy. Lower heel geometry, just like mid-cuts, love it. Tighter heel cup, exactly as what I expected. And the greatest aspect of the Hyperdunk 2011 is the forefoot and heel Zoom-Air. I always like the shoes with zoom in the forefoot n air in the heel, but this is the first time I try a shoe with both Zoom-air in the forefoot n heel. Tastes better than the Flywades. Love it!!
Pros: breaks in easy, good traction, lightweight, cool colors, durable, comfortable, good ankle support, zoom-air forefoot & heel

 Jordan Fly Wade - Men's
Jordan Fly Wade - Men's
Read a performance review on Jordan Fly Wade shoes! The Jordan Fly Wade is Dwyane Wade's very first signature pair of Jordans, and the beginning of a new Jordan legacy. At just 13.7 ounces, it's the lightest basketball shoe that the Jordan brand has produced up to this point. The lighter weight and efficient construction helps to give D-Wade the edge he needs to take on his opponents while also showcasing his Agent D3 logo on the tongue for a true Dwyane Wade style twist. The upper is made with a combination of synthetic leather and textile for support and durability, with perforations on the quarter panel for enhanced ventilation. TPU film is applied to the forefoot, rand and heel using a no-sew construction for lightweight performance. The full innersleeve is combined with the upper to provide a nearly seamless fit and reduce irritation. There is signature Jordan cushioning inside the collar and around the Achilles tendon and heel for an anatomical fit, plus a sandwich-mesh tongue for reduced lace pressure. Strategically placed notches along the eyestays allow flexibility while the foot is locked down for a superior fit. The asymmetrical collar is cut lower on the lateral side and higher on the medial side to provide optimal support and range of motion in the ankle. An external TPU midfoot shank provides torsional rigidity for quick cuts on the court. The midsole features full-length Phylon™ cushioning, a Zoom Air™ unit in the forefoot and Max Air® unit in the heel for an ultra-comfortable ride. The sole is made with solid rubber and designed with a modified elephant crackle pattern for multidirectional traction on a variety of surfaces. Wt. 13.7 oz.

I've never expected the Jordan Wades to be really sick!!
These are one of my best balling shoes ever..
Just got it this afternoon, tried them on the court...I thought I might need to break into the shoes, but the fit is just perfect.. The shoes snug into my feet just like a second skin, no room for the feet to slide thru!! They fit perfectly from Toe to Heel, n I dunno wht are those 2 foam pads on the heel cup for, but they really make the Wades really comfortable. Fully cushioned, n fit just right there
The elephant traction is awesome too!! It's better compared to the cilia traction which Adidas has :D
These Wades worth every penny man!!
Pros: lightweight, airmax, snug fit, great heel-to-toe transition, awesome looking
Cons: none

Sizing compare with Lebron 8 v1

In the description of Lebron 8 v1, Eastbay suggests that customers should order the shoes 0.5 larger than the customer's normal shoe size, while in the description of Lebron 8 v2, it is suggested that the customers shuld order their shoes according to their normal shoe size.

Any significant width difference between those two??

do they fall apart easily?

The 2011s are created out of a new model of Skinwire which is a lot lot lot lot more flexible that the 2010s. The upper is kinda like a second skin feel when you wear it. And they also change abit of the heel cup, tighter than the 2011s. The more flexible the material is, means the less resistance against your movement, which means longer wear (engineering principle)

Are these true to size in length and width

Thanks answering awesomeness dude.
According to my opinion of all Hyperdunk-rise series, they are abit narrower for people with wide foot bed like me. I believe you order .5 size up if your foot bed is wider than usual foot bed. For the length, yes it is a bit longer than usual basketball shoes such as Flywades and Hyperfuses but it is not noticeable and doesn't affect the feel.
In conclusion, what you have to consider is only the width of the 2011s :)

How is ankle stability on the 2011's compared to the 2010 hyperdunks?

I saw that there was less of an outrigger to stabilize lateral movement and fight ankle rollovers and general ankle stability and i was wondering what the comparison felt like to those who have worn both the 2010 HD's and the 2011's. Thanks in advance for any answers.
After a few observations, I noticed that the ankle collar is pretty much similar to the 2010s.. But the difference is in the material. 2011s have more flexible material, snaps like an outer skin, which reacts better with your ankle movement and also with the shoe lace around the collar. And with thinner tongue design, I believe you should have tied the collar tighter than usual, which means they lock your ankle even more and safer. That's all my opinion.

Would your feet hurt if you wear it for an entire game, since it is half a size small?.

It's recommended to order half size up..
I ordered a 9.5 for my size 9 feet, and after a break in I feel pretty comfortable..
It's breathability is the best part these shoes, so u can wear them for a longer period of game..

are these mids are high?

They're definitely mid cuts.. Hyperdunks have higher cuts than Hyperfuse..
I can define whether these are lows, mids, or highs, cuz I have tried and own lows, mids, and highs..

Does this mesh material get dirty quick when wet?

Yes it does, when u buy a brighter colorway..
But I have a full black colorway and it never looks dirty to me :)
And depends on where u wear these shoes on..

How good is the traction on hard wood flooring?

It's a usual herringbone pattern for basketball shoes..
But according to my opinion, Kobe V's and Adizero Rose's are better in traction control..

The Kobe Vs have more flexible soles which react on the way u squeek/move the shoes.. The same thing applies to the Adizero Rose's cilia traction
