Let’s talk basketball shoes. As an avid sneakerhead, do you consider yourself to be “hip”? Do you feel like you are the “trendiest” person on the block? Well, I got news for you. Unless you own a pair of the Nike Zoom Hypefuse 2011 Low’s, unfortunately you are neither hip nor trendy. That’s because the Hyperfuse 2011 Low is the most hip, trendy shoe that you could possibly get your hands on. There is a reason why. This shoe possesses the two qualities that the sneaker world consider to be the hipest, trendiest qualities a shoe can have. First, the Hyperfuse low is a low-cut basketball shoe. Low-cut shoes are “the coolest kids on the block” right now. Second, this shoe, as the name obviously implies, is made with Nike Hyperfuse. That’s right, the trendiest shoe material being used on any pair of athletic shoes.
Low-cut basketball shoes have actually been quite “hip” for some time now. Thanks to the Kobe IV, there are an enormous amount of ballers lacing up a low-cut version of many different models of basketball shoes. With the emergence of new, innovative technology; ballers are now able to perform at high levels and not have to worry about the injuries that low-cut sneakers were associated with in the past. The recent technology known as Nike Flywire has had a lot do with the way these low-cut shoes now perform. Flywire provides an extremely lightweight yet durable material that is used on a shoe’s upper.
Talk about hip. There is absolutely no material that is being used on basketball shoes right now that is more hip than the Nike Hyperfuse. And, to be accurate, Hyperfuse is actually a combination of three different materials. That makes it even more hip. The three matierials that make up Hyperfuse are a synthetic base, mesh, and TPU film. All three are fused together by way of intense heat to form one of the strongest materials ever used on the upper of a basketball shoe. As a result, the support and stability of the Hyperfuse are second to none. Perhaps the the biggest attribute to the Hyperfuse is the lightweight, breathability that the shoe possesses due to the mesh panels that are placed on the upper. The mesh allows heat to escape from the foot during play and is provides for lightweight performance.
