Along with its apparel and footwear for overall 22 sports, Nike also presented in Beijing the Olympics version of their newly developed Hyperdunk.
Nike’s lightest and strongest basketball shoe owes its existence to Nike’s revolutionary Flywire technology as it made its transition from track spikes to basketball. Flywire is the innovation driving Nike’s strongest and lightest footwear. Super-strong nylon filaments provide precise support akin to the suspension cables in a bridge, and allow a radical reduction in weight with material only where it’s needed for structure.
For the special occasion, the Chinese team got their very own version of the shoe in their team colors.
