First Look at the Li-Ning Way of Wade 8, Dwyane Wade’s Eighth Signature Shoe

THE SNEAKER BULLETIN

 

 

After shaking up the world in the Summer of 2012 by departing from Jordan Brand for Chinese sportswear brand, Li-Ning, D Wade is now officially a life-time member of the overseas brand, and we have your first look at his eighth signature shoe, the Li-Ning Way of Wade 8.

Sporting a totally new aesthetic in comparison to Wade’s predecessor models, the Li-Ning Way of Wade 8 introduces a boa-lacing system and a midfoot strap, something that was featured last on the WOW 6.

Li-Ning declined to create their own iteration of Nike’s FastFit or Adapt technology, and instead opted to use a revised dual boa lacing system, which is extremely similar to FastFit. Two sets of the boa lacing system are used at the heel ankle collar, and another at the midfoot, being directly parallel to each other.

Aside from the lacing, the Way of Wade 8 arrives equipped with a knitted upper, synthetic heel quarter panel, midfoot strap, two pull tabs, a foam midsole, and caging on the lateral sole.

While await a confirmed release date for Dwyane Wade’s eighth signature shoe with Li-Ning, let us know your thoughts in the comments. Keep it locked here for updates on the Way of Wade 8, as you’ll likely see it here first.
