2008 was a very special year for the basketball world. It all started when the Boston Celtics won their first title in 22 years, with the Big 3 consisting of Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen and Paul Pierce all receiving their first ring in their careers. In the off-season the Redeem-Team around LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Carmelo Anthony restored the American pride when the USA won the gold medal in Peking. Almost 3000 days have passed since then. We write the year 2016: the city of Cleveland won their first championship in over 50 years, Kobe Bryant announced his retirement and on top of all. A special year indeed. There would be no better place or time to cherish the past. Therefore Nike brings back the HYPERDUNK '08 and demonstrates the youth how it was done 'back in the day'. Time definitely flies.

Because of its combination of Lunarlon, Flywire and the established Air technology the HYPERDUNK '08 was known as the best Nike signature shoe not belonging to a NBA superstar. When he wasn't working on LeBron's and Kobe's sneakers, Eric Avar dedicated his time to the first ever Hyperdunk. And he created a masterpiece. Its monochrome and basic design caught the costumers eye and many described it as love on first sight. Don't forget: the performance aspect hasn't even been analyzed yet. The dependable standing and uncomparable court feel fascinated everyone and then, the hype began. Since then the majority of basketball fanatics await the release of every Hyperdunk with open arms, with everyone wanting to know what Nike is up to this time. If you jumped on the bandwagon along the way, you might want to experience the beginnings. You would not be disappointed, that's for sure.

Brand information: nike

When it comes to basketball, there is no way around Nike – the brand with the Swoosh belongs to the game like dunks, three-pointers and cross-overs. Whether in the NBA, European leagues or your neighborhood streetball court – the world’s largest manufacturer of sports equipment is a staple in all things basketball since the 1980s.
The Nike „Blazer“, released in 1973, was the company’s first sneaker designed specifically for basketball. While the shoe was very functional for its time and was worn by NBA scoring machine George „Iceman“ Gervin, Nike still was not able to step out of other sports companies’ shadows. Following models of the early 80s, like the now legendary „Air Force 1“ and „Dunk“ also did not manage the success the company had hoped for. That all changed when in 1984/85 Michael Jordan decided to conquer the NBA and the shoe game with Nike. While the „Blazer“ was Nike’s way of politely knocking on the door of the basketball-sneaker world, they blew it out of its frame with the success of „His Airness“ and the „Air Jordan 1“.

Nike is the frontrunner in basketball

Ever since then Nike changed the game of basketball. The triumph of the AJ1 was not only the birth of the iconic „Air Jordan“ - dynasty. It also paved the way for a variety of shoe lines like the Flight, Hyperdunk, Air Max and Foamposites. Today about 60 percent of the NBA’s players rock the Swoosh. Among them are some of the biggest names of the game: From Sir Charles Barkley in the 90s, Kevin Garnett and Kobe Bryant in the 2000s, to Lebron James and Kevin Durant today – the superstars of the NBA achieve mindblowing feats wearing their signature Nike sneakers.
Nike not only specializes in shoes though. These days ballers can dress up in perfomance sportswear bearing the Swoosh from t-shirts to hoodies, sweat pants, shorts, sweat bands and socks. Wearing Nike you can be sure that while playing your next game not only will you be outfitted in highly functional and valuable gear – you will also look pretty damn good wetting jumpers from all over the court.
