Li-Ning Way of Wade 2.0 ?

Could this be the Li-Ning Way of Wade 2.0?

I don’t know… I can’t read Chinese. If you can then feel free to translate what is written in the comment section below. All I can really say is that they look appealing on paper.

Li-Ning Way of Wade 2.0


Via rafapizarro1



  1. nightwing, it says way of wade 2.0, down there says full length carbon fiber, by the way my big brother works for li ning, he told me the shoes that wade wears is full length carbon fiber, the one in the stores are just in the middle man, wade went to china this summer, my big bro was with him the whole time

      1. my understanding is that even in china the way of wades are incredibly hard to find, only the li-ning outlets in the big cities seem to have a limited supply of them, and the website almost never seems to have any in stock (and when they do, folks with feet bigger than a size 9 are often out of luck….)

        strangely enough, though, i’m pretty sure that the li-ning stores in the philippines and singapore got all the initial release colorways in a full size run, so go figure…

        1. You’re right, I live in Beijing and you need to go to one of the flagship stores, and even then they might not have any sizes over 9

        2. Well that might not be totally true because it is true that you can’t find them to easy in China but that is only because they sell out. This is because its like the Kobe 8 but they make even less.

        3. Yeah! you’re indeed right. There was a mall here in the Philippines that i recently visited and got surprised when I passed by a store selling the Way of Wades. Guess what, it was a badminton/tennis shop.

          1. It’s Juego Sports… just saw it yesterday for the first time… kinda late though since Way of Wade 2.0 is on the works…

      2. yo nightwing, my big bro said lining is really stupid, they wont make a deal with foot locker and eastbay cuz they dont want the way of wade shoes to ever be on sale u know what im saying. if footlocker sales them, after a few months, the shoes will always be on sale, so lining just wont sale their shoes on Footlocker, my bro says the company is dumb as f**k lol. they dont sell them that much in china either, almost every pair is limited, u gotta wait in line and get them. beside the 1.5 (playoffs) home and away. And my bro says this 2.0 pic might be fake. he said he saw the 2.0, dwade was wearing em in shanghai for the commercial, and he said the 2.0 official pics wont come out till later this year. im in beijing now, i will be back on the 20th, if u need anything, maybe i can get them for u and send them to u man, but u gotta pay me man. i love u and ur vids but i dont earn any money. so, sorry 🙁

      3. oh yea, i emailed u before, my big bro is a big sneaker head too, he has over 300 pairs of shoes, yall got the same size lol. if u want the wade 1.5, imma try to get em for u, and maybe the peak TP9.

      4. my brother has the sample of the way of wade 2.0. its the sample tho, but it dont look nothing like this pic. he said if u need anything, connect him he can help u out, his name is penny. he went to Britain for college, so his english is good

  2. Roughly translating(bad english, sorry)
    Start from the top paragraph:
    “Ways of Wade 2.0, The shoes for Flash must be quick enough, therefore purple and gold represent lightning. The shoe is tough, using triangle structure, pure structural function low-cut shoe. While providing protection, it’s super light, super responsive cushion design, satisfying your speed.”
    Top left of the photo
    “Structural material support, big triangle ventilation holes to keep the shoe dry for a long time”
    Others are too blurry I can’t read them, but they are about the traction(bottom) and protection the toes(top right).

    1. Interesting. Sole Collector told me they think its a fan art concept sketch and by the way your translations sounds, they are probably right since there are no technical terms or tech pieces noted. Thanks!

  3. i just picked up a pair of the way of wades (in the announcement colorway), and was told that the WoW 2.0 should be out in early december….whether that’s true or not i have no idea, just passing on what i heard.

    btw, i played in the WoW indoors for 3 hours today, and it is a fantastic shoe, really pleased with it in every conceivable respect…they are very low to the ground, incredibly plush feeling, the rubber on the outsole bites the floor hard, the foam is reliable and unobtrusive….i definitely need a pair of turning points now…

  4. li-ning stepping up their game. the concept art looks good so far, maybe the only thing that can ruin this shoe is if they use cheap material…

  5. translation of the chinese: The Way of wade 2.0, dwayne “the flash” wade needs speed. That’s why the colors, purple and gold, stand for lightning bolts in the air. These kicks have a strong and tough style. Using trangular structure and low cut for performance, the WoWs guarantee protection and light-weight. At the same time it provides super-bouncy cushioning, to satisfy your need for speed.

    (ure welcome)

  6. I think I’ll act like a groupie the day I see someone rocking either version of this shoe. I saw someone with a backpack once.

    I only want to try it due to how rare the first is, but after nw led me to the path of the joker 28. I think I’m done till the bron bron’s drop.

    Till then…STAY BALLIN BABY

  7. I think they sort of look like the puma “bowling” casual shoes. Let’s just hope they look better in person, and are made with quality materials. Can’t wait to try something from them when Li-ning makes it big.
