Kobe Bryant Jumps over Aston Martin wearing Nike Hyperdunks

As previously shown, Nike unveiled their new shoe for the Beijing Olympics, the Hyperdunk, which will be worn by Kobe and his USA teammates.

It looks like Kobe is joined by fellow Laker Ronny Turiaf in a scene where Kobe attempts to jump over an Aston Martin while wearing the Hyperdunk. Whether this is actually Kobe or a stunt double remains to be seen, but from the looks of it these sneakers can definitely take off.

A New Era for New Era

A New Era for New Era

Portfolio magazine recently presented an interesting look at the progression of New Era. From its roots as a lifestyle cap maker in the 1920s, the brand would eventually secure the licensing for Major League Baseball and its player caps, never relinquishing the license it acquired in the 1930s.

However, with 70 percent of sales coming from MLB licensed team caps, a loss of this license could spell potential disaster for a brand who essentially blew it up when it obliged with Spike Lee’s request for custom Yankee colors back in 1996.
