Kobe/Ronaldinho Nike Hyperdunk

Ronaldinho HyperdunkRonaldinho Hyperdunk

By now you should know about my affection for the Nike Hyperdunk. I have said it once and I’ll say it again; it is the best basketball performance sneaker ever (Penny Hardaway’s shoe, the Air Flight One is number two, followed by the first Kobe Bryant shoe from adidas).

By now you have probably seen all the different country colorways for the Hyperdunk as well as some of the exclusive releases like the McFlys. For the most part, I am a fan of all the different flavors they have dropped, and while I haven’t been too pressed to cop an exclusive colorway, I am now.

The Ronaldinho Hyperdunk is straight fire. If you are a soccer fan then you’ll definitely dig these. It turns out Kobe and Ronaldinho are good friends, rumor has it that Bryant wore #10 in the Olympics as an ode to the Brazilian soccer star.

The shoe’s tongue has Kobe’s logo, better known as the Japanese Shozoko, and bares the colors of Ronaldinho’s former soccer club FC Barcelona. Pricing and Availability are coming soon. Stay tuned because when these drop you know they won’t be available for long.

    Funny – I thought that Kobe, as a soccer fan, would realize that #10 in soccer is like the #23 of basketball. That’s why I figured he was wearing it. Surprised he doesn’t wear it for the Lakers.

    The hyperdunks are by far the best performance shoes (I have 6 pairs right now), but this colourway is probably the only one I wouldn’t snag up. There ain’t no outfit at all that could match these.

    @ Control,
    Would you play in these though?

    Ronaldinho had one of the best commercials ever when he’s doing that crazy shit with the ball. I don’t like soccer, except I’ll watch Italy in the World Cup, but that shit was ridiculous. Goalllllllllll

    I just got my first pair of hyperdunks; the puerto rico’s…after trying them on, their alittle higher that I’m used to( it almost seems like a high top) but I like the comfort and how light they are…I’ll have to test them at the y later tonite…

    These kobe/Ronaldinho’s are kinda hot, where are they gonna be released at , house of hoops? Might have to hold off though think I’m gonna cop the retro jordan III’s releasing next saturday…

  • Alex from AZ

    I’d kinda feel silly telling people that these are Ronaldinho’s when he’s playing for AC Milan now. An AC Milan colorway of Red/White/Black, if done right, could be sick….or if they threw his number 80 on them someplace inconspicuous…so you’d still know they were Kobe’s shoe….

  • http://GEE2.com GEE…Hooligaaaaaaanss!

    OMG these are uuuuuugly! Hahah fa real. Look like a preschool shoe.

  • control

    CGF,

    Would I ball in these over my other hyperdunks that match my gear? Nope.

    Would I ball in these over some other type of shoe? Despite it’s looks, yeah, the hyperdunks are THAT good.

  • tre
