Nike Basketball’s upcoming AlphaDunk has an official release date.
I’m not sure if I’d consider the upcoming Nike AlphaDunk a highly anticipated basketball shoe, but it’s one I’m morbidly curious about.
The Hyperdunk line was pretty solid. It had its fair share of hits and misses, like any line of footwear, but it was mostly full of solid performers. We can always just think of the AlphaDunk as a rebranded Hyperdunk, which is basically what they are, but that still leaves the question: what is that Zoom Air going to be like?
The forefoot houses a very large volume Zoom Air unit. I wonder how they shoe will flex, and how it will support, and how it will feel. Will they be so rigid that having something like that is meaningless? Will they be so bouncy that they’re unstable? So many questions and only one way to answer them. Lace them up and try them out.
Mark your calendars for August 30 as that is when we can expect the Nike AlphaDunk to hit retailers. Pricing information is still unavailable, but we hope to get that information figured out soon enough.
Are you interested in trying out the Nike AlphaDunk upon its release? Sound off below and let me know.
