Following a postseason in which sports drinks somehow became a major topic of discussion, we get our first look at the Li-Ning Way of Wade 2 in a Gatorade-inspired colorway.

Pulling cues from the company's signature scheme, the cleverly named 'Wadeorade' Way of Wade 2 features an orange patent leather upper, grey dazzle camo midsole and green inner lining. Of course, Wade has been a member of the Gatorade family since 2005.

While several unique colorway have been released by Li-Ning in recent months, this 'Wadeorade' sample will probably remain exclusive. Would you cop a pair if they dropped?
