Have you seen the specially made basketball shoes for Yi Jianlian by Nike for the Beijing 2008 Olympics? The Nike Hyperdunk shoes are worn by Kobe Bryant as well, however Yi Jianlian top 7ft star from China will be sporting them for the Olympic games.
The shoes have really top technology and was actually featured in the magazine Fast Company Inc. It has a zone temperature system where the ventilation is spectacular .
“The Flywire-based ZOOM VICTORY (1) middle-distance spike weighs only 93 grams, or 3.28 ounces. The HYPERDUNK (2) will help Chinese star Yi Jianlian get an even bigger vertical edge.”
Kobe Bryant will have shoes specially made for the Olympics as well! The shoe is designed to give a vertical edge but we all know that Kobe doesn’t need it much nor does Yi Jianlian the 7footer!
Right now I’ve seen the shoes sold on Ebay. Here are some sizes below.
