Last week we announced the arrival of the Nike Air Max Hyperize in the States. The newest member to the hyper-family takes the hyperize silhouette and fuses it with a full-length Air Max 360 sole unit, like that used on the Air Max LeBron VII. Unbeknownest to us at the time but apparently the Black/Royal-White version we showed you last week is part of a larger pack honoring the 2010 NCAA Final Four.
With March Madness in the air it’s nice to see that Nike’s put together a few colorways of the newest Air Max Hyperize inspired by some of the teams participating. This is of course an unofficial Final Four Pack, as it has yet to be determined who’ll actually be making it to Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, TN for the Big Dance.
To be honest with you, I’m not a biggest college basketball fan, so I can’t call out each team colorway here, but those who do watch are sure to know what’s what here. The little that I do know though tells me that the black/royal-white version is inspired by Duke and the white/metallic gold-black version falls in line with Purdue, which is a little ironic cause Purdue just outlasted Texas A&M in overtime and will be facing off against Duke on Friday. So one of them defiantly won’t be making into the Final Four. When it comes to the other two and which teams they represent you’re on your own. One sports varsity red/black-white and the other white/midnight navy-varsity red. Featured on the tongue of all four is a pair of scissors above a basketball net, with a dotted line across the top to signify where those who win the Dance will cut the net.
All four colorways of the Nike Air Hyperize shown here in the “Final Four Pack” are available now through Eastbay for $145.
