Before the Fly Wade signature line, Dwyane Wade's Jordan Brand footwear selection mainly consisted of Player Exclusive colorways of flagship models past and present. Here's a look at Wade's 'Away' AIr Jordan 12 PE from Holiday '09, which carries a "Flu Game" vibe with Heat-inspired yellow accents throughout. For extra measure, Wade's name is embroidered on the heel of each shoe.
This rare pair never hit retail, but you can consider OregonSole's eBay auction if you're interested in adding to your collection.
