The Li-Ning Speed 8 Premium, Fred VanVleet’s signature shoe for 2021, makes a quick follow-up to it’s predecessor, the Li-Ning Speed 7 Premium, right in time for a new NBA season. Thankfully, Jalique was able to grab a pair with quick shipping, so he can now share his initial thoughts on the guard-friendly team shoe. This shoe was so good, it made our best Li-Ning basketball shoes list.
