What would happen if the Air Max LeBron VII and the Hyperize had a baby? My guess is as good as yours and it would be the Air Max Hyperize. The shoe’s POP cw also dropped along with the ZKV POP this week and here’s a closer look. Obviously these were done in the Jazz’ colors. The shoe features the key elements of both pairs- the flywire tech of the Hyperize (which is also available on most LeBrons) and the Air Max 360 sole from the LBJ VIIs. They are a bit clunky but would serve well for cats who like to prowl the paint. Many have said they’re as heavy as the Hypermax’. And similar to the Kobe POPs, they also feature the snowflake-y design on the upper. The tongue features the triangular “bracket”. Not quite sure what it symbolizes but you can infer they represent the teams in the postseason. From the colors, you can pick up LA, Cleveland, Portland, Utah, Orlando, and Boston (it’s Boston, right?).
My question is– do we really need another variation of a shoe that’s quite similar to what’s already out? Nike Basketball’s pairs for this season with similar silhouettes- LBJ VIIs, Hyperize, Hyperdunk, Hypermax, and now an Air Max Hyperize? I dunno guys. I think someone fell off the deep end with this one. But, on the other end, if you’re a fan of the Hyperize but wanted more stability and cushioning, then it makes sense. The Air Max Hyperize then solves a need. Anyhoo, the shoe’s now available at most Nike retailers.
