 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.

This shoe is a beast performer but the first time i wore these on court someone must've stepped on my shoe pretty hard while running because there is a scuff mark at the tip of the toe which reveals a white/silver ish colour underneath, it definitely wasn't from me dragging my toe. I bought the university red/royal pair so it's very noticeable, but the mark is small. The material itself is very durable and doesn't show much wear which is nice, but i just wish that the colour didn't come off that easily or at least not after the first wear. At the end of the day not that big of a deal, it is a performance shoe after all and will get damaged in one way or another. I'll most definitely be buying another pair tho.. maybe a primarily black or white one this time in case it happens again. But overall very good.
Pros: breaks in easy, lightweight, doesn't crease, cool colors, durable, good ankle support, breathable, good traction, easy to clean, comfortable, stays clean a long time
Cons: scuff revealed white/silver colour underneath

This shoes are everything you want in a basketball shoe.... stable, breathable, lightweight, durable and price also isn't too bad. I actually landed awkwardly on my right ankle and thought i had sprained it but the outriggers and ankle support took care of it... honestly felt like nothing. Shoe breaks in (well for me) pretty quickly.. took one game for these to conform to my foot shape. This shoe performs.. especially when you need it to.
Pros: breaks in easy, good traction, lightweight, doesn't crease, cool colors, easy to clean, durable, comfortable, good ankle support, stays clean a long time, breathable

I read the other reviews on this shoe and completely disagree, this shoe definitely is not narrow, because I have a wide foot i ordered a half size up like you're supposed to, so I don't know what those other reviewers are saying, but this shoe fits my foot perfectly. The material used on the toe box is also a harder material, so it doesn't crease or get marks easily, which is nice. Money well spent.
Pros: breaks in easy, good traction, lightweight, doesn't crease, durable, comfortable, good ankle support, breathable, new texture for the nike swoosh is a nice touch.

The form-fitting, tapered cut of these McDavid Hex™ pads allows them to be used over the knee, shin, or elbow. They are built to allow a full range of motion with added comfort. 9mm HexPads® use a pad shape that allows this piece to conform to the body, moving with you for optimal protection at every turn. It's completed with hDc™ moisture management that pulls sweat off the skin and helps it evaporate. Lightweight, breathable and protective the Hex Knee/Shin/Elbow Pads are sold in pairs. 80% nylon/20% spandex. Imported.
 

McDavid Hex Knee/Elbow/Shin Pad vs McDavid HexPad Elbow/Knee Pad

On an answered Q&A of this product, the McDavid Hex Knee/Elbow/Shin Pad the staff member said that the dimensions are smaller overall compared to the McDavid HexPad Elbow/Knee Pad. Now does this concern the length? Or are the lengths of both the same? I'm looking to wear this primarily on my shins too so i just want to know if the length is smaller because i want the pad to cover the majority of my shin.

Insoles

Do these have removable insoles? I'm considering buying a pair but my friend told me that the cushion is very firm and dense, so i was just wondering if i could perhaps buy a more cushioned insole, would that help?

Flywire?

You guys mentioned in the description and also in a response to someone's question that there is flywire in this shoe, but where? All i can see is a hyperfuse construction on the upper. If there is actually flywire in this shoe where it is? Because i can't see it from the single image that's on here.

Sizing

I am a size 13 and when i tried these on at a local store here in Australia the sizing was WAY OFF!!! I definitely know i want to buy this style of shoe but i don't know what to trust... you guys say stay true to size, but when i tried a 13 on in store they felt like maybe they were a size 15 or even bigger!! Is sizing of this shoe the same worldwide or do they vary from country to country? i usually follow your sizing advice in either going half size up or staying true to size and i'm always satisfied.. but this time i'm skeptical because i don't want to have to send these back for being too big...

if you guys could help me out it would be much appreciated.. peace

$ off or % off discounts

Are you able to tell me which of the upcoming colourways of the LeBron 9's will allow a $ off or % off discount code to be used? Cuz right now only the black/white/sport red colourway will allow me to use a code... but the kentucky colourway won't... if you check an earlier question answered titled "Sizes and colourways" (which i asked) could you tell me from those colourways the ones that would allow for a code use?

thanks a lot :D

Fit

So i have this in XL but i've lost weight since i first bought it and i reckon i could probably go to a Large and it's a little loose now.. only a little though.. so is it bad if the compression tank doesn't fit perfectly with no crinkles? cuz when i wear it now there are a few crinkles around my rib cage and back.. not heaps though... so will this affect the performance pros like the increase vertical, speed etc... ???
