The Most Popular Low Cut Shoes For Basketball

The low-cut, high performance basketball shoe is here to stay. There are more of these shoes on the market than ever before. Multiple editions and colorways of both Nike and Jordan Brand signature sneakers are widely available for purchase at all the major sports retailers. Ever since the Kobe IV burst onto the sneaker scene, there has been a major shift in the cut of basketball shoes that ballers have purchased. A shift from high and mid-cut shoes to that of the low-cut variety. And one of the most popular low-cut basketball shoes currently on the market is the Nike Hyperfuse 2011 Low.

There are plenty of very good reasons this shoe is so popular. One of the reasons is in the name of the shoe itself. Hyperfuse. This design material is the most innovative element that has been used on a basketball shoe in the last few years. Hyperfuse is a combination of three different materials fused together by intense heat. The Hyperfuse material creates the maximum in lightweight breathability and durability. This innovative Hyperfuse material is used on the upper of the shoe.

Another reason this shoe is so popular is the responsiveness that is created by it's traction control system. A solid rubber outsole with a herringbone traction pattern allows for quick, slashing cuts on the basketball court. Combined with it's lightweight and stable upper, the traction that this shoe provides is unparalleled in any other low-cut basketball shoe on the market. The solid rubber outsole is also responsible for the superior durablity that the Hyperfuse Low provides.

Many times a lightweight and durable basketball shoe will not be built with a high level of cushioning. That is not the case with this shoe. Both Nike Phylon and a Zoom unit are featured in the shoe's midsole and effectively create maximum impact protection. Another very good reason that this is the most popular low-cut shoe among serious ballers.

The Nike Zoom Hyperfuse 2011 Low is now available in a wide variety of colorways. Not only is this shoe technologically sound, it is one good looking shoe. A shoe that looks very good in more than one colorway. This shoe is truly one of the masterpieces that Nike shoes for basketball has made available for purchase. And has been the case with their other basketball shoes, you can bet on Nike dropping many more sick looking colorways on the Hyperfuse 2011 Low.
