This year’s KICKS cover shoe hero? Nike Hyperdunk 2012.
The Swoosh has a lot invested in the success of the Hyperdunk, advancing the latest in the brand’s premier technologies of Dynamic Flywire, Lunarlon foam, and the first rendition of Nike+ Basketball fully embedded within the shoe.
Going on 15 years now, the annual SLAM Presents: KICKS issue has helped mark the seasonal passing of summer and the start of a fresh wave of fall sneakers and beyond to look forward to.
I wrote this year’s First Step opener outlining the last 15 years of kicks. See that, 400+ shoe shots, and more. KICKS 15 is rolling out to newsstands nationwide now.
