Next week, basketball fans shift their focus to the Windy City as Chicago hosts the 2014 World Basketball Festival. Part of the celebration of the global game is the Tournament of Champions, a four-team showdown featuring the best local ballers from Chicago, New York, D.C. and Los Angeles. All eyes will be on this tournament as each city vies for bragging rights, but those with an eye for footwear will see the on-court debut of the Nike Hyperdunk 2014 “City Pack”.
Each team will wear a special colorway of the Hyperdunk that draws inspiration from the spirit of the city they represent. Chicago “honors the players who are carrying the game on their broad shoulders and the city that represents the soul of basketball.” Los Angeles was “[i]nspired by the multicolored beauty of the L.A. sunset”. New York takes their cues from “the colors and architecture of the city’s skyline and designed to exceed the expectations of New York’s sky-skimming athletes.” As for D.C., it “celebrates both the beauty of the city and the boldness of its athletes.”
The Nike Hyperdunk 2014 is available now at Nike.com and at retail locations for $140.00 for the Chicago and New York colorways and $130.00 for the D.C. and and Los Angeles (low-cut) colorways.
