For his second season in the NBA, Li-Ning Basketball has laced Philadelphia 76ers guard/forward Evan Turner with his first official signature shoe, the Turningpoint. Inspired by aviation and Evan's smooth game, the high-cut shoe features a leather and nubuck-based upper with large cutouts on each ankle and BD Doom-style detailing along the side panels. Mesh panels implemented on the upper increase overall breathability. Turner's newly designed "ET12" logo appears centered on the tongue, insole and outsole, while his jersey number "12" appears on the heel. Custom podular raised herringbone on the outsole enhances traction, while the outsole rubber is wrapped into the midsole for quicker directional changes.
Priced at $100, the Li-Ning Turningpoint is available now at Shop Li-Ning. Additionally, there's a full collection of Evan Turner Turningpoint apparel and gear that can be purchased as well.
