This is a perfect russell westbrook vertical match. One of the best performing basketball shoes will be rocked by one of the best performing professional basketball players. Just as the Hyperfuse is a rising shoe star, Westbrook is a rising NBA superstar. Both the Hyperfuse and Westbrook have strong resumes. Westbrook led his UCLA Bruins to consecutive Final Four appearances in 2007 and 2008. Not too shabby considering those were the only two years he spent playing college basketball. He was selected in as the 4th pick overall in the 2008 NBA Draft. After three strong seasons, Westbrook is on the verge of becoming one of the true superstars of the league. The Nike Hyperfuse has an equally impressive track record. After first being released, this shoe has consistently performed at high levels year after year. It has been one of the most durable, lightweight, and breathable basketball shoes that Nike has dropped in the last couple of years. The new Hyperfuse PE that Nike has dropped for Westbrook uses a colorway that perfectly matches the colors of his Oklahoma City Thunder team. The upper of the shoe, laces, and Swoosh feature Photo Blue. Orange accents are used on the midsole and inner camouflage print inner. The shoe of the tongue also uses the Thunder-colored camo print. The shoe is finished off nicely with a clear, translucent outsole. The Nike Hyperfuse continues to roll along at a swift pace. This just might be the hottest shoe on the market. Quite fitting for a shoe that was originally developed to combat the heat that builds up during play. Nike designers visited China in an effort to observe the avid ballers who spent hours outdoors on the hot blacktop of the courts that populate the country. The material that is known today as “Hyperfuse” was directly influenced by these players. The mesh panels that exist on the upper of Hyperfuse allow for the release of heat that is built up during play. These panels were created in direct response to the harsh, hot outdoor conditions of the courts in China.
