Green's shoes are an ode to his all-around brilliance
Designed to extend the shoe’s legacy with its action-oriented nature expressed in sleek, minimalistic lines, the newest Hyperdunk sports a modern twist to the brand's purest iteration of a basketball shoe.

The Golden State Warriors' domination over the past few years would not be possible without Swiss Army knife and emotional leader Draymond Green.

His intensity on the court certainly translates into his mind-boggling numbers, as the veteran forward averaged 10 points, nearly 8 rebounds, and 7 assists last season, which also saw him earn the Defensive Player of the Year award.

After being the poster child for the small-ball movement in the NBA, Draymond Green is once again at the forefront of another advancement in basketball.

There's no denying that whenever Green takes to the floor, he needs a shoe that can back up his intense nature.

Enter the Nike React Hyperdunk 2017 Flyknit.

Designed to extend the shoe’s legacy with its action-oriented nature expressed in sleek, minimalistic lines, the newest Hyperdunk sports a modern twist to the brand's purest iteration of a basketball shoe.

Tucked inside its very soul is the game-changer for cushioning. Aptly named React, the all-new Nike foam is soft yet ultra responsive as it is strong and stable. The cushioning foam reacts swiftly to every step, then bounces back to its original state, ensuring the player a consistent energy uplift every minute of every game. 

Born from thousands of hours of basketball testing inside the Nike Sports Research Lab, it is the most energetic and durable, breakthrough foam you can find in Nike Basketball. There is simply no other shoe in the brand’s history that has delivered better energy return than the Hyperdunk 2017 Flyknit.  

Its outsole sports a data-informed traction pattern that offers consistent grip in specific zones of the foot. Its internal shank plate is encased within the cushioning and outsole, providing all-important rigidity and control. Hardworking but loaded with attitude, the all-Flyknit upper combined with a decoupled collar provides comfort, breathability, and mobility for that custom one-to-one fit. 

The shoe is made for quicker cuts, smoother lift-offs and longer playing time on the hardwood that ticks all the boxes for Green.

“To be the first to wear the latest Hyperdunk…to win a title in it…means the world to me,” Green said.
