This Nike React Hyperdunk 2017 Flyknit was introduced to the world by Golden State Warriors’ Forward Draymond Green in game 1 of the NBA Finals. Green had this to say when asked about debuting the shoe:
To be the first to wear the latest Hyperdunk means the world to me, we’re talking about Nike Basketball here, the biggest athletes in the world and being the first one to actually try this new technology is amazing. Mom, I made it. When you’re talking about Nike, you’re talking things that last for decades. This shoe is lightweight, it has a resilience in it. It has the bounce so it keeps me sprinting and moving around just like I want to.
The shoe is equipped with a grey Flyknit upper and what the company is calling a “pressure-mapped” outsole. The main event of this Hyperdunk is Nike’s brand-new React, which is an responsive energy return cushioning system. The company plans to go more in depth on React in the coming weeks as will release information regarding the React Hyperdunk 2017 Flyknit.
