words_Brandon Richard Though he's the face of German basketball, Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki will be sitting out the FIBA World Championship next month. Like a lot of marquee NBA stars, Dirk will be taking the offseason to let his body recover from the last NBA season and prepare for the next one. Nevertheless, Dirk's international popularity can't be understated. Driving that point home is the release of his WBF Hyperdunk 2010 PE. Dirk's PE features a white leather base, with black Swoosh working the side panels. A gradient effect has been applied to the red around the ankle, while the ankle cutout is bordered by yellow. Red returns for the inner liner and paint on the upper part of the midsole, while yellow boasts Zoom branding leading into the outsole. Personalization comes in the form of "Dirk14" done in black on the tongue. These will be available at House of Hoops locations on August 7th. via KATC
