Playoff Rewind 2010: Rajon Rondo's Nike Zoom Hyperfuse



The playoffs are a magic time for sneaker heads. Players bring out new sneaker models and exclusive colorways that were not seen during the regular season. Last season, Rajon Rondo captured the world's attention with his dazzling play and his out of this world vitory green Nike Hyperfuses. The shoes had yet to be released to the public, but Rajon put them on the map providing more than enough buzz for the model. After the first game he wore the shoes, sneaker blogs were on fire with talk of the Hyperfuse. When the shoes finally released months later, they instantly sold out. The NBA playoffs can make player's careers and act as a launching pad for new shoe models. What does this season's playoffs have in store for us? This writer can not wait to see!!!
