According to Nike, the shoe was "engineered around the less-is-more design principle," in order to maximize natural motion. The team had a specific player in mind too, according to the press release.
"Developed with the speed and quickness of phenom point guard Kyrie Irving top-of-mind, the Nike Zoom HyperRev maximizes performance and comfort. The upper features mesh and a dynamic Nike Flywire system made up of super-strong, ultralight nylon cables for locked-down support."
Designed by Leo Chang, the HyperRev utilizes a full-length Zoom bag within a Phylite midsole. It's foam collar was designed to add stability and support, while not restricting range of motion. The shoe launches globally on Jan. 1st, 2014.
