 Nike Hyperdunk - Men's
Nike Hyperdunk - Men's
Elevating basketball performance to the next level, the Nike Hyperdunk is an innovative combination of advanced Flywire technology and a basketball-specific Lunarlon cushioning system. This light, more supportive, durable and breathable basketball shoe is expressly designed to meet the demands of elite basketball players worldwide. The upper features the most advanced version of Flywire, which uses high-strength cables for support and stability. These responsive cables are loose when at rest and dynamic in motion, tensing to help stabilize the foot. A synthetic heel clip enhances lockdown, as the engineered foam and mesh of the upper reduces weight while further increasing breathability, strength and durability. Simultaneously, the collar of the shoe wraps lower in the back and higher over the front, increasing flexibility and lateral stability in the heel and ankle. The open mesh tongue and full inner sleeve provide lightweight ventilation and a more secure, comfortable fit. Basketball-specific Lunarlon midsole supplies a soft, yet responsive foundation. Improving upon past models, there is additional foam in key areas, enhancing lateral stability and durability. A 3-D shaped, glass-reinforced, composite midfoot shank offers torsional rigidity and responsiveness. The solid rubber provides durability and traction on a variety of surfaces while a modified traction pattern and forefoot pivot circle enhance multi-direction grip. Moreover, a high-wrapping lateral outrigger provides reinforcement for hard cuts, providing players with the support they need for high performance. Wt. 12.4 oz.

I have been buying basketball shoes for myself for a while now so I've played with nearly every shoe brand and style there is, and I must say these shoes are at least in the top three all time out of maybe 50 pairs of shoes I've played in over the years. These shoes have everything you want in a basketball shoe, regardless of what position you play. And on top of that, the color designs are sick. The only series I like better than these shoes are the Crazy Light shoes.
Pros: breaks in easy, lightweight, doesn't crease, cool colors, durable, good ankle support, breathable, good traction, comfortable, stays clean a long time

I've had these shoes for over a year now and they're only just starting to show signs of rip and tear, and I've used them a lot. Extremely lightweight and breathable, they also are more comfortable than I expected with how light it is. Absolutely no problems whatsoever with this shoe.
Pros: lightweight, doesn't crease, durable, good ankle support, breathable, good traction, comfortable, stays clean a long time

Play...every game in the adidas adiZero Speedwrap Ankle Brace. This equipment features a lateral spare to protect against ankle rollover under stress. The weight-reduction technology keeps you light on your feet while receiving optimal support on the court. There are nonslip zones incorporated into the design in high impact areas. Antimicrobial material woven into the brace protects you from odor, fungus, bacteria and other micro organisms. Just play in the adidas adiZero Speedwrap Ankle Brace. Sold Separately.

Great ankle support, but it was extremely uncomfortable for me. I have a feeling that it's just me though. I would suggest that you make sure your sizing is really what you want. For most people, I would recommend it.
Pros: high performance, durable
Cons: uncomfortable, picky sizing

Hyperdunk 2012 vs Crazy Light 2

For a power forward, which would be a better shoe: Hyperdunk 2012 or the Crazy Light 2. I'm having a hard time choosing between these two, so any suggestions would be great.

 adidas Originals Top Court Mid Big Logo - Men's
adidas Originals Top Court Mid Big Logo - Men's
The adidas Originals Top Court Mid brings back that mid-80s basketball shoe style, It combines a nubuck upper with a padded nylon ripstop collar for super-durable style, patent leather 3-Stripes® and a vulcanized rubber outsole with the adidas wordmark and Trefoil. Wt. 12.9 oz.
 

How well do these shoes hold up?

These shoes look like they would look very good on anyone's feet, but I just want to know how long they would hold together if I wore them for nine hours a day everyday. They aren't cheap, so I want to make sure they won't rip on me before I get a solid amount of mileage on them.

Based on athletic performance in basketball, which is better: Crazy Light 2 or D Rose 2.5?

I'm debating between those two shoes. I just want another opinion.
