As the Miami Heat set to go on a preseason Chinese tour, Wade wisely plans to official release his newest shoe by China-based Athletic Company Li-Ning. The Two-Time NBA Champion has been posting teasers on his Instagram and Twitter (@DwyaneWade). The shoe appears to be right up Wade’s Alley as they are sleek and stylish. Sneakerheads around the world will quickly pick these up.
For those that confused on his new shoe deal, following three years sporting Nike’s Jordan brand and a previous six with brother label Converse, Wade opted out of his relationship with Jordan and Nike when his contract expired in September. Wade was recently asked about his relationship about Nike and Jordan and he expressed:
“We went our separate ways. But I’m still honored to have represented my favorite player of all time and his brand.”
Many believe Wade simply wasn’t getting enough signature shoes made and too much attention was being paid to surrounding NBA Stars. No matter the reason the outcome is he working with an up and coming China-based Athletic Company.
Below are some pictures of Dwyane Wade’s New shoes:
