Nike React Hyperdunk 2017 // Shift Direction
11 August 2017

Written by: Raymond Canteras

Dubbed as “the signature shoe of Nike Basketball”, the Hyperdunk has come a long way in terms of innovation since it was originated in 2008. In each of its iterations, the silhouette has simultaneously flexed fresh innovation and stood as the brand’s purest expression of a basketball shoe. (Nike News)

Debuted by Draymond Green in the NBA Finals and launched in store last August 3, the Nike React Hyperdunk 2017 features Nike’s latest innovation for responsive energy return, the Nike React cushioning platform.

On August 12, the first of three sessions of the Nike React Hyperdunk 2017 Trial Sessions will be held at Titan Love Court. Former PBA All-Star and Champion, Jeff Cariaso will lead the session where the players will get the chance to feel the complete benefits the Nike React Hyperdunk 2017 has to offer starting from the changing of directions.


The outsole of the Nike React Hyperdunk 2017 is a data-informed traction pattern with pressure maps coming from the Nike Sports Research Lab. This ensures a supportive base, highlighted by circular pistons, tuned to offer traction exactly where it’s needed. Aside from the importance of enhanced traction, the Nike React core encapsulated within to create rigidity will help the player make quick cuts and have a smooth lift-off. (Nike News)

All these features will be put to the test through a series of footwork drills for in-training, game time and defensive situations on the court.

“The drills I have lined up will certainly enhance the shift direction feature of the shoe. Not only does a player have to react and make quick decisions, but he will also need a pair of shoes that will support these movements. There’s no better shoe out there than the Nike React Hyperdunk 2017” - Coach Jeff Cariaso
