Dwyane Wade and Li-Ning had a successful first year run having D.Wade (WOW) win his third NBA title. Today, Li-Ning and designer Eric Miller unveil the upcoming Li-Ning Way of Wade 2 in a Black/White-Red color-scheme inspired by the previous “Announcement” Way of Wade.
Dwyane Wade described the Li-Ning Way of Wade model as being the most comfortable shoe of his career and he didn’t want to change much of the comfort from his first design.
“He really didn’t want too much changed. He wanted a new fresh look,” Miller describes. “He wanted to stay in the leather zone and continue to make a product that had character and charisma and could be something that appealed both on-court and off. There are a lot of shoes now that are just manufactured. They don’t have that hand-crafted stitch detail. We worked with Alejandro Ingelmo and learned some things from the fashion world, and we worked with Dwyane’s stylist and learned some things about him and had a bunch of fun doing it.”
Below are the first official images of the upcoming Li-Ning Way of Wade 2 “Announcement” that will be the first colorway to launch later this Fall. Stay tuned to Sneaker Bar for further details and release info on all the upcoming Way of Wade 2.
