bout time for a new shoe post.

Nike Hyperdunk "Marty McFly"

base shoe is the nike hyperdunk with the new "flywire" technology and a colorway inspired by Marty Mcfly's 2015 infamous automatic fitting (and drying) shoes from one of my favorite movies "Back To The Future Part II." with specific color blocking, speckled midsoles and a BTTF logo on the tongue, it is highly reminiscent of the shoe. quite a special one, at least before we get the actual shoes, if ever we're going to get them. but that's not all. the glow in the dark outsole is the cherry on top. recently released at UNDFTD in Santa Monica. sources tell me they're coming soon in all Niketowns.

Nike 1/2 Cent Penny Hardaway Hybrid

this might be one hybrid i actually like, since i'm a big fan of the penny series. base shoe and heel is from the Air Max Penny. i probably would've preferred the Air Up '94 as the base, but i don't see it's presence from the hybrid. vulcanized outsole is from the Zoom Flight '96, shape above the base with the middle lace is from the Air Max Penny II, chrome penny logo from the Air Penny III, the medial side is from the Nike Foamposite One, upper medial from the Air Penny IV. pics of the outsole is still yet to surface. well done, looks wise if you ask me.

Zoom Kobe IV

pics of the ZKIV have now surfaced and the apparent changes are that its a lowtop, with the hyperdunk "flywire" technology, and the return of the herringbone pattern. news from the technology:
Nike also incorporates all of its newest performance technologies like the flywire and the lunarlite foam into Kobe’s fourth signature pairs. The flywire enables the wearer to jump right after landing from a previous leap, while the lunarlight disperses pressure to protect the feet from fatigue and injury.
i'll reserve my judgment until i get to play it on court. no qualms over the looks; its unique and nike is trying to revert back to basketball shoes with performance as the forerunner, instead of just the looks, which is how it's supposed to be. retail is $120, to be released in january.
