    A downgrade design wise compared to the 2012. I don't get it with this line as far as the inconsistency with the look goes.

    2008 > 2012 > 2011 > 2010 > 2013

    The only Hyperdunks I've ever liked were the Galaxy 2011's and the McFly 2008's.

    These are trash as expected.

    Is that an EM upper I see similar to the Kobe VIIIs?

    Hyperdunks have fell off from the OG look wise and performance wise. HDs aren't even the best performance sneakers around anymore, not even top 5 within this year's Nike offering.
    These seem like they'll be pretty good with cushioning & ventilation. I like the look of the "flywire" but that seems like its just for show.

    It has potential depending on the way it's colored up...

    2012 were great. 2013s look promising indeed. Just not feeling the fused on swoosh under the flywire. Bring the swoosh back towards the heel then it'll look better. The midsole is the best part. Same price of $140? Hope they ditch the Nike +.

    Nike only puts effort into the design on the big stage(Olympic years). Every other year they put out sub-par designs

    They look like KD V's and Hyperdisrupters.

    So I guess Nike is trying the sneakerheads by releasing the Hyperdisrupters?

    They look good though!

    From this year's releases?

    1. Zoom Soldier 6
    2. Melo M8 Advanced
    3. Kobe 7
    4. KD 5
    And then the 2012s.

    They were my team sneaker this year and it was all well and good until they broke in after about a week and the cushioning felt ridiculously uncomfortable around the arch area. I played with all of these in the past few weeks and they were eye opening good, the signature lines are killing the Hyperdunks this year. I'll cop these too, just to compare but so far the lunar isn't matching up to zoom bags & phylon.

    ^ Interesting....I've been rockin with hyperdunks the last 2 years and thought this years were one of the best/supportive pair of kicks I've rocked in recent years.  I don't wear lows so Kobe's are out (don't want to debate about my feelings for lows because the discussions usually go downhill very quickly lol),  Honestly I haven't balled in J's since I was a kid (I've been hearing quality things about the products but ascetically I think their performance shoes are awful).  Intrigued by the KD V though.

    Is that the actual shoe or an early sample?
