WITH the 2017 NBA Finals underway, Nike also let some of their brand ambassadors playing for all the marbles try out their new signature shoe colorways. Here are the three new shoes unboxed by the Swoosh.

Nike React Hyperdunk 2017 Flyknit
Draymond Green is debuting the Nike React Hyperdunk 2017 Flyknit on the game’s ultimate stage. Delivering comfort, support and the responsive energy return of all-new Nike React cushioning, this is the most innovative iteration in the shoe’s nine-year history. Flyknit technology on the upper provides targeted stretch and breathability, while its pressure-mapped outsole enhances traction.

“To be the first to wear the latest Hyperdunk means the world to me, we’re talking about Nike Basketball here, the biggest athletes in the world and being the first one to actually try this new technology is amazing. Mom, I made it. When you’re talking about Nike, you’re talking things that last for decades,” says Green. “This shoe is lightweight, it has a resilience in it. It has the bounce so it keeps me sprinting and moving around just like I want to.”

Nike Zoom KD10 PE
This is a special Nike Zoom KD10 PE for Kevin Durant.

“Winning the championship would be amazing, I have always wanted to be a part of the moment where you are embracing your teammates and you know your fans are cheering for you because you are a champion, that’s the moment that I want to be a part of,” shares Durant.

Nike Hyperdunk 2016 PE
Covered in Cleveland's team colors of wine and gold with a speckled midsole and Kevin's logo on the tongue, this version of the Nike Hyperdunk 2016 is built for the stretch forward's shooting and rebounding game as he hopes to help Cleveland defend its title.
