Nike Basketball has blessed us with some of the top technologically advanced sneakers to date, and their latest innovation, the Nike Zoom HyperRev, has finally landed in Foot Locker. Developed with the speed and quickness of phenom point guard Kyrie Irving top-of-mind, the Zoom HyperRev maximizes performance and comfort. The upper features mesh and a dynamic Nike Flywire system made up of super-strong, ultralight nylon cables for locked-down support. The feel and responsiveness of the Zoom HyperRev is enhanced with the combination of full-length Nike Zoom and a lightweight Phylite midsole. Designer Leo Chang’s goal was to create a lightweight, breathable and flexible shoe that delivered a custom fit with proprioceptive feel. The shoe’s ankle support features flexible foam lining within the mesh. In addition to Kyrie, several other NBA stars such as Paul George, Andre Iguodala, Michael Carter-Williams, OJ Mayo, Rudy Gay and Demarcus Cousins have been rocking the HyperRev’s on court. Check out images here. The below colorways are now available in at House of Hoops by Foot Locker stores, and additional colorways are also now available for pre-order on Footlocker.com for $ 120.
