Dwyane Wade Practices in Li-Ning Shoes
words // Brandon Richard
With his new Li-Ning deal expected to be officially announced ahead of next week's Miami Heat/Los Angeles Clippers exhibition tour in China, Dwyane Wade is already breaking in his new sneakers.
The 8-time All-Star was spotted at Heat training camp earlier today, working on getting his knee back to normal in what appears to be the Li-Ning shoe he teased on Twitter earlier this week.
Wade's new kicks features a black-based synthetic upper, rubber outsole and a lace setup that forms a "W" above the toebox.
We'll have more news to report next week, but check out these practice shots below and let us know what you think.
Check out www.blacklotus9.com. Li-Ning shoes, while polarizing opinions visually (for example, I'm not a fan of the logo, nor the high-cuts of most of their shoes. That's partly why this Wade sig appeals to me. Clean-cut, and more of a mid), has always scored high in performance. In fact, a number of their shoes have made BL's top 20 for 2012 list.
Thanks for the clearer pictures!!! The shoe doesn't look too bad. I was worried that the logo would be applied and change the whole look of the shoe. I like the tongue, especially at the top. I can't tell what material on on the side panels; it might be patent leather. The shoes looks a little odd an clunky on its overall shape and symmetry. I like the speckled midsole. However, I don't think my opinion matters much at all due to it only being available in the East, right?
