As an annual feast,Hyperdunk It is already an important part of Nike’s product line. Every year, the most advanced and mature technology is combined on the HD series. From the initial Flywire to the later fuse, the midsole evolves from zoom to lunar, and then into a combination of zoom and Phylon. With the introduction of flykinrt series for the first time this year, each generation of HD series is completing self evolution. The super real combat performance also makes it the most selected team basketball shoes among Nike’s players. In addition, the inexpensive price, good appearance design and outstanding color matching, HD series shoes will be distributed on all courts, large and small, almost every year.
For the hyperdunk series, I have always liked it very much. I have entered 08, 13, 15 and 16 of this year’s two versions. Although I’ve always liked medium and high top shoes, hyperdunk 2016 tested today has a pair of low EP, which also gives me a new feeling when I’ve been wearing high top shoes.
I played ten games in two pairs of shoes and tested the floora cement floorandPlastic floorTo sum up, let’s talk about our views on these two pairs of shoes:
Hyperdunk 2016, as the latest generation of hyperdunk launched this year, launched two versions for the first time, FK and EP. From the appearance point of view, because the uppers are not made of the same material, I personally think that they are superior and inferior in the competition of appearance value. Different materials bring completely different feelings to the two pairs of shoes. As a high top shoe lover, when I first saw the FK version, I decided to buy this pair of shoes, not only because the super-high upper, slender body, tightened arch and wide heel are the reasons to choose it. Relatively speaking, the EP version is slightly bloated, and the overall line of the sneakers is very smooth. There are no edges and sharp lines, which makes me feel like a bread shoe.
The second is the feeling of wearing. FK’s feeling is different from the initial feeling of KB9 elite. The tight but not oppressive wrapping feeling covers the whole foot. The long sock sleeve is also different from KB9’s upper. The wrapping feeling of the sock sleeve is not as tight as I thought. This design can only be used as the extension of the shoe in the lower leg, and does not have too many protective functions. The super-high sock cover also makes it difficult to wear and take off this pair of shoes. The whole vamp and shoe body are relatively flat and slender. There are still requirements for the foot shape. It’s best to try it in the specialty store and buy it in person. Although the EP version looks a little bloated, after all, it is designed separately for the foot shape of Asians. It is not picky about the foot shape. Although it is not easy to wear and take off, the wrapping feeling in the shoe is still very excellent. The upper fuse is very soft, there is lining below, the comfort of the upper is also good, and the sponge in the heel is very thick, which fits both sides of the Achilles tendon. Although it seems that the ankle movement of low EP is very flexible, the FK version of socks does not limit the range of ankle changes. In addition, it’s best to wear high top socks to play with socks. If you wear low top socks at the suture between socks and heel, you may wear your ankle.
Let’s talk about the soles. The materials of the soles of the two pairs of shoes are different. Although the patterns of the soles are the same, butThe EP version with XDR outsole is still a better choice for outdoor venuesThe FK version of the large blue crystal bottom looks very good. The large-area window opening on the sole is a typical Leo Chang’s pen. The horizontal lines in various directions ensure excellent grip on various fields. After playing these times, the wear is not large, and there has never been sideslip, which is satisfactory. In terms of cushioning, FK is a full-length zoom, and its thickness is less than that of EP. FK’s foot feel is slightly strong, but it also has a very obvious feeling of zoom when stepping on the ground and landing. Although the air cushion of low is small, the foot feel is so detailed that it will be felt immediately when stepping on the foot. It’s not too much to say that it’s stepping on shit.
However, without perfect shoes, both FK and EP have their own shortcomings. The strength of FK vamp can only be supported by the patch on the inner side of the vamp. Therefore, during large-scale emergency stop and disguise, although the foot sole will not slide in the shoe, the connection between the outsole and the vamp has turned to the sole. This will happen to people with weak leg strength such as Xiaobian, thereforeIf you wear FK version, you should pay more attention to the large-scale disguise。 For EP, although the upper of fuse has many windows, it still has some advantagesMuggyWhen something happens,The white upper is hard to take care of, if you are stepped on, there will be a big shoe print, and dirt will penetrate into the mesh at the lower layer of fuse, which is more time-consuming and laborious when you want to clean.
Fast speedPlayers may choose the low top version of low EP, but the zoom feedback of the forefoot is not as direct and fast as the FK version, and the ankle socks will not affect the flexibility of the ankle.
In terms of price1599/999The price gap is still large, but I believe there will be a certain price discount after a period of time. As a pair of hyperdunk with superior actual combat performance, it is definitely a pair of all-round soldiers suitable for any position.
Here are my scores on these two pairs of shoes:
Hyperdunk2016 fk hyperdunk2016 low ep
appearance ten seven
Comfort nine eight
Cushioning eight nine
sole eight eight
protect nine seven
weight nine eight
cost performance seven nine
Air permeability eight seven
This is the best generation of hyperdunk that I have passed through without doubt. I am not surprised by its shape or performance, and it can be seen that Nike is also interested in expanding the hyperdunk product line, so as to expand the influence of this series. As consumers, we happen to encounter such a pair of shoes that can perform well in all positions, which is also very worth starting with. FK and EP have their own advantages and strategies. Both FK version of flykind and EP of zoom have excellent practical ability. It is said that good shoes are produced in the Olympic year. Hyperdunk082012 has proved its historical status. I believe hyperdunk2016 will also be the pair of boots everyone wants to wear.
