words_Brandon Richard The French National Team will be one of several squads that take part in some tune-up action at the World Basketball Festival prior to the FIBA World Championship next month. In addition to taking part in open-air practices and scrimmages, France will have the privilege to lose to the United States in an exhibition game on August 15th at Madison Square Garden. All jokes aside, the French has a roster full of recognizable NBA names. Guys like Tony Parker, Boris Diaw, Joakim Noah, Mickael Pietrus, Nicolas Batum, Ronny Turiaf, and Rodrigue Beaubois are some of the names you may see take the court in New York City. If you look at the feet of the Nike represented ballers from France, you may see this special make-up of the Zoom Hyperfuse. The France Zoom Hyperfuse features a midnight navy base, with mesh and synthetic materials working together for the shoe's build. Varsity red is the main color of accent, while white pops in for the Swoosh, Hyperfuse branding on the tongue, and France branding on the lateral ankle. Look for this pair at House of Hoops locations on August 4th. Color: Midnight Navy/White-Varsity Red Style: 407622-402 via Nike Basketball
