New year, new me – said the Hyperrev line, as Nike Basketball gives the budget line some Ritalin – renaming the shoe the Nike Zoom Rev 2017.
Nike has been known to throw in the word Hyper on a lot of their sneakers dating back to the Hyperdunk, so this name change would be a big shift from those times for Nike Basketball.Whats change for the Hyperrev?
The upper is made out of a very soft mesh that is backed by an extremely thin layer of fuse which severely cripples the Zoom Rev’s breathability, but not its comfort, as it allows the mesh to move freely thanks to its thinness. There are also a few areas where the upper is reinforced with fuse overlays, but these overlays are only placed in high wear areas and don’t compromise the Rev’s comfortable setup.
2, Wrapping and protection is excellent
There is a big difference change is Zoom Rev , though the Hyperrev
Was great for last version . There is not the Flywire , but just the wrapping is excellent .it is become thinner for Tongue and heel , forefeet ,that is in order to the wrapping , the midsole also improve the wrapping .The TPU of the heel is great support .overall material of Zoom Rev can be said that hard inside but soft in outside , the outer layer is breathable mesh, the toe has a reinforced coating ,and ankle also thickened lining, so Zoom Rev have a good protection and cover under the specific weight , all of theses are improved in this version .
3, Grip is great
Rev’s full-length herringbone pattern would work well in all conditions, compare with the last version of grain , th herringbone which like the stone throw into the quiet lake . but the rubber compound Nike uses here just isn’t tacky enough. The feeling is great for not any longer time whenever we are going to play .if playing On clean floors , the traction is great , but if your floor has any dust whatsoever, you’re going to find yourself wiping quite a bit because dust will get caught in between the many grooves of the outsole.
Despite only using forefoot Zoom Air, the Rev ’17’s cushion system is a surprisingly comfortable. you feel the forefoot Zoom Air bag, it is comfortable . But what makes the Rev ’17 so comfortable is the lightweight Phylon midsole that is extremely squishy. However the aim is improve the protection when playing .
There is another disadvantage which the cushion was be simplified a lot .
Zoom Rev has been simplified to only the forefoot of the Zoom Air with the back palm Phylon. Hyperrev of 2015/2016 are still of full length Zoom Air, compare with the version of full length Zoom Air styles , It is really a bit difficult to accept. And after the actual test, personally I feel the palm of the Phylon better than Zoom Live flexibility,if I play a long time , my feet will a little hurt . if the play bounce more fierce in game , maybe need to consider and attention .
The outsole also has a ripple-like design which won’t affect the overall stability but does add a light bounce, something that only enhances the Rev ’17’s cushioning. Overall , the cushioning in the Zoom Rev is surprisingly soft, but it is worth noting that if you land directly on the forefoot Zoom unit, you will get a responsive feel
