Traditionally, the Hyperdunk has — like the LeBron Soldier — always received a pink build for Breast Cancer Awareness Month (October) in honor of Sandra Kay Yow, a Hall of Famer with over 700 career wins. Now, the Nike Hyperdunk X ‘Kay Yow’ has leaked, and it gives us a much better look at the next Hyperdunk model.
The Nike Hyperdunk X will celebrate ten years of the Hyperdunk line and the shoe has been the subject of leaks for months. Of course, leaked images never do a shoe justice, and that seems to be the case with the Hyperdunk X.
Dressed in bright pink and black for a striking Breast Cancer Awareness Month sneaker, the Nike Hyperdunk X ‘Kay Yow’ features a synthetic textured toebox with fuse reinforcement for added durability. The tongue gets a small X (for ten) and the arch receives ten small dots. Breast Cancer Awareness ribbons hit the heels to seal the deal.
The Hyperdunk X will feature forefoot and heel Zoom Air units but until FastPass takes the shoe to the band saw we won’t know how thick those units are. The heel of the shoe appears to be a woven material while the midfoot is neoprene. Some lucky people overseas have already gotten their hands on the shoe.
There is no official word yet on when the Nike Hyperdunk X ‘Kay Yow’ will release, or for what price, but reliable leaker US11 has said that the Hyperdunk X TB could arrive as early as July 1. The team shoe has not yet appeared on release calendars.
