Nike Hyperdunk 2018 X Performance Review

It 10th anniversary of the Hyperdunk series in this year. Therefore, the name “X” should be interpreted as the 10th anniversary sneaker.X look  like the low version of Hyperdunk 2016.The Nike Hyperdunk X features several familiar design and functional cues from previous models such as Zoom Air cushioning in the heel and forefoot, a lightweight mesh upper, inner bootie, and a high peak at the ankle for protection.


Many  friends must checked the review of Hyperdunk 2017. I believe that Nike the popular tech of  “Zoom Air”;  React technology ,such as Hyperdunk 2017 and 201 are whole used the React tech. There are  still much room for improvement.The Hyperdunk series was the initial choice for the 10th anniversary of the three Mid-soles: Zoom, Lunarlon and React.


For the lace system : New to the Hyperdunk 10 is the wider lacing structure that provides additional lock-down with Flywire. that is the best news for some players. some of them will be like this part for the locking down the feet well .


For the material: Nike Hyperdunk 2018 used the engineered woven jacquard ,the feeling like the Hyperdunk 2017 ,we can felt engineered mesh is lightweight, breathable, and easily damaged during game-play.So the Hyperdunk 2018  followed this kind of material .it reinforces the mesh upper and provides greater durability. On the other hand, it limits the amount of airflow that mesh traditionally brings. While it isn’t suffocating, the ventilation is nice , you will felt it is great ,especial for summer ,the air can through the shoes .

For the supporting : The supporting is great too,an external heel counter, along with an additional external reinforcement piece, though it is different with the Hyperdunk 2017 , but the performance is nice .

A number of rounded outriggers are fond of  Hyperdunk 2017 ,maybe it  offer a wide stable platform without feeling clunky or restrictive. then for the Hyperdunk 2018 , seems it is a little upgrade ,these outriggers act like bumpers that ensure you aren’t rolling over on lateral maneuvers. it is great .

It’s not clear if the foam midsole is the brand’s new REACT foam or a standard injected phylon.

For the traction : it is herringbone again, this type of pressure mapped pattern might even be a little better than Hyperdunk 2017, also there are many shoes will used this kind of traction ,as we know or we trying it, it is great in the actually game .Compare with the 2017 , I think the traction .

How do you think  ?

For the fitting :  I’d recommend that wide footers go up 1/2 size. otherwise it is will be better.

Overall,Hyperdunk has been regarded as one of Nike’s most significant chapters of their storied Basketball heritage , and the new version have a great cushioning ,material . I enjoy trying out new designs and features on footwear. how do you think ?
