How fast is that car going anyway? lol
You can see this video on gossip sites, hip hop sites, rap sites, and (you guessed it) sneaker sites. I am sure some people believe that he actually jumped over the car and maybe even had to do a second take of the jump after not quite making the first try… LMAO
Plenty of comments on this video on sneaker sites including Nicekicks.com. Again, while I am sure someone believes he actually jumped over a car, I truly doubt it. There is no way he would risk his own health, the heart break of his family if he actually got hurt or killed, and his chances to continue playing basketball due to some serious injury.
Not to mention that it is possible that his contract could have been null and void due to him risking his life like that. Not to sure how true that would be but i am almost sure there is a clause in anyones sports contract that states they much with due diligence, keep themselves out of harms way.
Oh and by the way, you ask, what is the Hyperdunk?
Here is a small quote from SneakerFreaker about the sneaker:
Nike Hyperdunk’s designer Eric Avar did far more than that. He created a shoe with the style of Nike’s classic basketball footwear from the original Air Flight Huarache in the early ‘90s to the Huarache 2K4. The Nike Hyperdunk’s upper is encased in a web of Flywire filaments. As work on it evolved, so did the outsole. The design and research team saw that with a more flexible midsole and outsole, a Flywire upper has a more dynamic fit. The shoe now marries Flywire with Nike’s other new cutting-edge technology, Lunarlite foam, the super light springy cushioning in the forefoot, and Zoom Air in the heel.
Kobe played in a pair recently and I have to say they look alright. It obviously has great technology in them and I’m gonna bet that they work well on the court. The problem usually is that the highly functional sneaker look ugly as hell. Nevertheless, this sneaker looks rather good. I can’t wait to actually see them and see just how light they are.
Oh and I do not think these sneakers are officially the next Kobe sneaker. I think Nike just wants Kobe to promote it but its not his signature shoe. I think they want this to be a general release for anyone to wear. If anything there will be players editions (PE) of which have team colors.
They are supposed to release sometime during the 2008 Olympics.
