Nike Hyperdunk 2015, Inspired By Marty McFly Shoes
July 11, 2008 by .:.
Quick entry from our friends…
The Hyperdunk, designed by Nike creative director Eric Avar, is one of the lightest and most innovative basketball footwear products Nike has ever produced. Debuting on the feet of Nike athlete Kobe Bryant on April 10th, the Hyperdunk will hit retail outlets in the U.S. on July 27th.
While designing the Hyperdunk shoe, Avar took design inspiration from a Nike concept shoe created in the late 80â€™s for movie character Marty McFly [played by Michael J. Fox] in the film Back to the Future II. The shoes were created through a licensing agreement with Universal Studios Consumer Products Group. Looking at the Hyperdunkâ€™s overall shape, distinctive heel counter and midsole, these features all hearken back to this original concept shoe.
As part of the launch, Nike will introduce limited colorways leading up to the retail debut of the Hyperdunk. One of those limited products is the Hyperdunk 2015.
The Hyperdunk 2015 will continue this tribute to the original concept shoe by borrowing some of the iconic coloring that made the shoes so striking. The upper of the Hyperdunk 2015 features the same matte grey and white colors that appeared on the original. It also features the grey and teal speckled midsole that jumped off Marty McFlyâ€™s original footwear, as well as glow in the dark panels that give the shoe a futuristic feel.
Additionally the Hyperdunk 2015 will feature call outs to the film including graphics from McFlyâ€™s hover board on the sock liner and a few more subtle references for people to discover on their own.
A limited number of the Hyperdunk 2015 will be released in the Philippines on July 15 at 8:15pm (2015 hours) at Nike Park The Fort. Those who want to purchase a pair need to be at the store by 8:00pm in order to participate in a special release program for the shoe.
