The silhouette used is a Li-Ning Way of Wade that they’re calling, “The Fire Monkey” as a nod to the Chinese New Year.
Reason for the high value of the sneaker is because of hundreds of carats of white diamond pieces and blue sapphires in 18k gold, all in which was produced by Bicion’s in-house jewelry engineers.
In addition to the flashy details are a blue, white and gold color scheme that also includes a flower pattern throughout and has a golden hang tang with an embossed logo of both parities involved in the collaboration.
This Li Ning Way of Wade The Fire Monkey sneaker will be unveiled at an official press event in New York City later this week. Proceeds from the sale will be given to Soles4Souls, a non-profit global organization.
