And apparently, to assert its place in the market as well as recapture fan favorites. Nike released the Hyperdunk 2016, which impressed the Hyperdunk Elite Flyknit.

Nike Hyperdunk Elite 2016 Clinging

The Nike Hyperdunk Elite’s transparent substrate surface is very nice and works well with clean, dusty surfaces. Similar to Kobe XI, grooves on the outsole of the Hyperdunk Elite are not deep, resulting in a very sticky and dusty base. Tested with cleanly cleaned parquet floors, the shoes provide a good grip on the boot. The middle V cutter works well every time you suddenly divert or suddenly accelerate.

One note for you is that these shoes are not suitable for outdoor play, especially with the yard condition in Vietnam. The rubber grooves are very soft, thin and prone to erosion only four to five times on the legs. In short, in a perfect pitch, the shoes do not disappoint, but they do not provide a great experience.

This helps keep the shoe from stable but does not make the most of the advantages of Flyknit to help keep the toes and heels comfortable.

Another factor that Nike should improve on later versions is the lack of shoe laces. When the Flyknit in the middle of the shoe is very soft and light, the carrier tends to slip forward because the foot is not squeezed tight enough. You can tighten your tightly to limit this situation. however, after 2 hours of play, you will feel extremely uncomfortable because of an excessive squeeze.
