In recent years, online gaming has been a growing trend, playing an important role in many people’s lives and gradually merging with other forms of entertainment like sports, music and digital social experiences. Gordon Hayward is a brand ambassador for HyperX and ANTA and one of many professional basketball players that are avid gamers off the court. Hayward is a skilled pro basketball player and a top player in League of Legends and Fortnite.

The HyperX x ANTA limited-edition Gordon Hayward bundle box includes a special edition Cloud Alpha gaming headset and Gordon Hayward ANTA co-branded GH2 sneakers. The limited-edition HyperX Cloud Alpha gaming headset features a Gordon Hayward logo on the earcups.

Cloud Alpha utilizes dual-chamber technology to reduce distortion and provide clearer, more accurate in-game sound. The headset also features a detachable noise-canceling microphone that is certified by Discord and TeamSpeak. Cloud Alpha offers signature award-winning comfort with premium red memory foam, an expanded headband, and softer, more pliable leatherette, providing a better user experience. The limited-edition headsets are only available in China.

The co-branded Gordon Hayward GH2 sneakers are a second-generation design and are also included in the HyperX x ANTA limited-edition Gordon Hayward bundle box. The GH2 features HyperX’s black and red colorways and utilizes a unique printing process that showcases black-red gradient effects. The design fuses inspiration pulled from headset circuit boards, headsets, keyboards, mice, and the HyperX logo. The HyperX logo is prominently featured on the heels and the lacing system features “GAMER” in the design, showcasing the partnership between HyperX x ANTA.
