What's up with that bold new shape of the Nike Hyperdunk 2015 that represents such a different direction for the Hyperdunk line?

It turns out Nike Basketball's footwear design director Leo Chang actually looked to the Nike Mag for inspiration on this one. The sneaker is billed as feeling like a high-top and performing like a low-top. Tech on this one includes Zoom Air units in the heel and forefoot, a phylon midsole, and Hyperfuse uppers.

The Nike Hyperdunk 2015 will release globally on July 1 in the "Bright Crimson" colorway pictured here. The white colorway will release on August 1.
