What is a Hyperstrike? Hyperstrikes are exclusive releases, limited in quantity and given to only friends/family. In 2006 a Texas Hyperstrike was created to commemorate the All-Star Game in Houston. It rarely makes an appearance, but it is a grail to most Texan sneakerheads. As a Texan, we all know how often representation for our region gets overlooked so this shoe was a game changer for our community.
