After we previously first reported the Nike Alphadunk to rebrand the long-lasting Hyperdunk line back in January, we now have our best look yet at the shoe and all of its details.
A nub traction pattern makes up the majority of the outsole, while a likely Phylon midsole encasing double stacked heel Zoom Air, and a full size forefoot Zoom Air bag completes the tooling of the shoes. Making up the upper is Nike’s new Air Knit technology, expected to be lighter and more breathable than their previous Flyknit innovation. An additional flywire cable lockdown system can be seen at the tongue. Completing the shoe is a large swoosh wrapping all the way from the lateral to medial sections of the shoe, while pull tabs at the heel allow for an easier entry into the shoes.
A confirmed release date has yet to surface for Nike’s newest Alpha Dunk, but be sure to keep it locked here for updates on the Swoosh’s biggest moves this Summer. The Nike Alpha Dunk is expected to make its first on foot debut this Summer at the FIBA tournament on select Swoosh-endorsed athletes. Let us know what you think in the comments below.
