The Nike Hyperdunk 2017 Will Introduce New Lunar Foam Cushioning

words // Nick DePaula:

Later this summer, Nike Basketball is set to introduce yet another edition of its flagship Hyperdunk series, and most notably, the 2017 version looks to bring a return to Lunar Foam cushioning and its original silhouette.

Spotted way down on page 37 of a Nike NCAA team bank ordering PDF, the newest Hyperdunk is listed as an August release, with presumably more non-team energy launches perhaps releasing even sooner.

With a woven jacquard upper, similar to the KD8 and Air Jordan XXX from a few years ago, the upper features a one-piece targeted construction with a molded external heel counter. The tooling incorporates an ergonomic solid rubber outsole, podular in form, that’s already been drawing some comparisons to adidas’ similarly natural motion-based Feet You Wear outsoles of the mid-to-late ’90s.

Most notably, gone is the Zoom Air unit cushioning that we saw on the Hyperdunk 2015 and 2016 editions, as Lunar Foam makes a return to the series for the first time since 2014. There’s purportedly a new Lunar Foam compound in store, that’s lighter, while also being more responsive. We’re of course looking forward to giving them a run on the hardwood for a performance review.

One thing to also keep in mind — perhaps there is yet another “Elite” version of the Hyperdunk 2017 still in store, which may feature a Flyknit or otherwise unique construction or look. Stay tuned for more details and release information on further Hyperdunk 2017s to come, and let us know what you think of the latest addition the series in the comments section below.

Nike Lunar Tiempo ’94 Mid

Nike’s marquee shoe ahead of the World Cup has undoubtedly been the Tiempo ’94 as it pays homage to Nike’s memorable original foray into the sport during the 1994 World Cup in the United States. While we’ve seen a barrage of Nike Tiempo ’94 offerings that follow more closely a traditional disposition, Nike flexes its modern technological muscles through a new Lunar version. The midsole welcomes the use of Lunarlon cushioning with a further tech-driven upper with contrasting taped seams. Look for the two colorways to be available at select retailers globally.


Nike Lunar Raid “Peace”

Borrowing a page from its Nike Air Raid II counterpart, the new Nike Lunar Raid is gearing up to spread “Peace” to the masses. Featuring a black upper, a mix of red, green, and yellow take care of the revamped classic’s accents and branding. Outfitted with a Lunarlon sole, a bit of peace detailing adorns the heel tab as paint speckle takes care of the midsole and sole. Will peace be with you once these drop?

Undefeated’s Eddie Cruz Talks Nike and the Latest Lunar Force 1 Pack

With the Undefeated x Nike Lunar Force 1 pack set to launch, we caught up with Eddie Cruz to talk about the upcoming shoes and collaborating with Nike. Having already worked on several stellar collaborations with Nike, the collaboration business is nothing new for Cruz but with age comes experience, and Cruz has been able to leverage that experience to create what may be Undefeated’s best Nike collaboration yet. Check out what Cruz had to say below and be on the lookout for the Lunar Force 1 pack at Undefeated and select retailers.

Starting from the Bring Back Pack

You spoke about the Undefeated x Nike “Bring Back 2003″ pack in Taipei. Is this an ongoing project from the Bring Back pack?

The Bring Back Pack was based on the originals we did in 2002 and 2003, which were not available to the public — they were for promotional use only. This new project is different – it’s a celebration of something we did, but with modern elements added to it. In this case, instead of an Air Force 1, we worked with a Lunar Force 1 and added a Hyperdunk tongue for comfort.

What sort of design approach did you take for this pack?

Well, we felt the best approach was to design a conceptual shoe that tells a story and exudes the brand. At Undefeated, all things sport and military inspire us, so we wanted to make something hard yet super comfortable. That’s what people want — it’s what we want!

Classic Sneakers and Nike Collaborations

Eddie Cruz talks about the Undefeated x Nike Lunar Force 1 pack

With technological developments always coming to the forefront, what does that mean for classics like the Air Force 1? Can they live on forever?

100 percent. Its the best design in the history of sneakers. Clean, simple and wearable. The Nike Lunar Force 1s have all the fresh elements of the classic Air Force 1, but with a much lighter feel. The Lunar Force 1 did not compromise the integrity of the original Air Force 1 at all. It gave Air Force 1 loyalists and new heads on the scene a cool option.

What is it about Lunar that you love/appreciate?

The sole is ridiculously light and it’s nice to know I can walk around LA and feel no pain. Not like anyone walks in LA – but if I did!

How do these rank with your previous efforts with Nike?

James Bond and I have been doing this for a long time. He would agree that these are probably the best executed collaboration we have ever done with Nike – the technology is getting next level. Experience matters.

Now as far as with your collaborations, anything that sticks out as your personal favorite?

I really loved the Bring Back Pack Hyperdunk because it was the first time we ever had the opportunity to work on something other than a classic. It was more challenging. Which was fun for us.

Have you taken a different approach to designing and collaborations having had so much experience under your belt?

Yes. ( :

Undefeated Going Forwards

Eddie Cruz explains the goal behind Undefeated Technical Gear

Do you think that the average consumer is looking for something different now than say when you first started Undefeated?

I look at Undefeated itemized sneaker sales every single day of my life. If I had to guess, I would say its about even. It’s a much better situation nowadays, because there’s a history. The classics are never going to go away and with Nike in particular, they are the only shoe company that can turn something new into an immediate classic. That’s what they do. Period.

With Undefeated Technical Goods having been introduced in 2013, is there anything you can share with us on the performance and training theme of Undefeated?

We try to make Technical Gear that can perform with the best of them, but with our customer in mind. Our customer likes alternatives and that’s what we try to bring to them.

What’s the next move for Undefeated?

Look out for our new centrally located Undefeated shop this coming Fall 2014. It’s exciting but heartbreaking for us — we’ve been at the original location since 2002, but we’ve outgrown the space. It’s just right across the street. A much larger spot.
