A few weeks ago Nike introduced a range of Air Max Hyperize’s in a lineup of team colorways inspired by NCAA teams which they had high hopes of making it past the Sweet 16 and into the Final Four. Aside from some pretty dope color choices the release marked a glorious moment for the Hyperize, a model which has become known as the most popular basketball sneaker. Adding to the super-light and extremely comfortable silhouette, and making it all that much better is the addition of a full-length Zoom Air to cushion your ride.
Now that the Final Four is over and done with, and Duke’s been crowned the Champion, it’s time to move on and take a look at some other renditions of the Air Max Hyperize Nike whipped up for the year. First up is a Nike Air Max Hyperize NFW in Sport Red/White, the first of the new Air Max Hyperize’s to not use flywire. Instead of the usual flywire Nike replaced the paneling with a slab of nylon with what appears to be nubuck making up for the rest of the base. A White heel counter consists of a Sport Red speckle pattern which leaks down onto the white mid-sole sitting above a Sport Red Zoom Air unit.
Select Nike retailers such as Finish Line are stocking the sneakers now, so if you’re interested hit em up to grab yourself a pair. Finish Line also has the Air Max Hyperize part of the Playoff Pack.
