Best shoes to play ball in IMO.

Extremely light, very good shoes especially for a guard. Im 5'11" 175 and they are perfect for me. Only drawback is that they have a very short lifespan. I read somewhere that they only have a 80 hr lifespan. We were balling at UCLA a couple weeks ago and this one guy posterized someone and everyone was :roll: and not at the guy that got dunked on but the guy who made the dunk landed and his Hyperdunks tore in half. Ive had mine for about a month and they are still in good condition so I don't know if the 80 hr lifespan part is true but I saw a guys have his tear in half so I guess it also depends on how active you are and how hard you play in them.

yeah i can't speak on durability as i just picked them up on black friday. I've worn them 5 times and they are AMAZING. My favorite ball shoe of all time just ahead of The Questions. Hopefully they don't split on me lol. I picked up a pair of Zoom II soldiers also as a backup pair.

****kk....

I just bought mine on black friday and they felt fine...

That 80 hr life span is when playing outdoors? or indoors? or both?

Nike has to think about us normal people... we cant afford to wear brand new Hyperdunks every game like NBA players do. :)

Im not exactly a shoe expert but my sneakerhead friends tell me that something about the lunar foam cushioning breaks very easily so it might not even be 80 hrs. I guess if you don't jump much the shoes will last longer but if your an intense player then you may want to cop an extra pair in case.

There's no question that Hyperdunks are best basketball shoes to play in. However, the short lifespan is quite a drawback. If you really want Hyperdunks then I suggest you buy 2 or more pairs and alternate every time you play, so they stay playable, per se.

Are you an aggressive player? The lifespan of Hyperdunks depends on the person wearing them. Has the Lunar Foam bottomed out?

I loved the Hyperdunks, at first, then after about 2 wks of playing they began peeling, and eventually busted wide open at about 6 weeks. I am a player that plays all positions 1-4. I actually think these work better for a 4 position in some ways, because that pos. is not cutting as much. I still regard Zoom BB the best Nike Basketball shoe with Hurache 2nd.
