Performance Teaser: Nike Zoom Hyperfuse 2013 Pt. 2

I thoroughly enjoy all aspects of the Nike Zoom Hyperfuse 2013’s performance features on-court… other than the cushion of course.

SONY DSCThe Adaptive Fit collar is interesting. It’s nearly independent… only held together by the fused weld surrounding the eyelets and two straps located underfoot. What does it do exactly? It provides the ankle with more natural range of motion without any heel slip or separation between your foot and the shoe. Does it work? I think so… I can’t really feel anything significant but that could be the point. I’m able to move freely without restriction.


These are the two straps I was talking about above. This part allows the collar to keep your heel locked into place even though it isn’t attached to most of the upper. It’s pretty cool and slightly interesting but nothing that a nice fitting low top couldn’t provide you with.


Every attribute on the Hyperfuse 2013 are well above average… except the cushion. Unfortunately, that could be the one drawback for a majority of consumers. It sucks too because they got everything else right and Nike is sort of known for their awesome cushion systems. Bummer…

  1. hey nightwing, don’t you think you can’t feel the zoom cushion right yet because it hasn’t been broken out perfectly? Maybe it’s like the LeBron XI cushion with somewhat like a week of solid hooping to get the cushion broken-in.
