Buy Li-Ning Wade 808 2

The Nike Kobe 7, Nike Kobe 8, and Nike Kobe 9 all featured drop-in midsoles as did the Nike LeBron 11 released around the same time. The most recent basketball shoe to feature drop-in midsole technology is the Nike GT Cut 2. No brand outside of Nike did this for basketball shoes until the adidas Harden Vol 5. Now, the Li-Ning Wade 808 2 uses the drop-in just like the shoes mentioned above but uses an excellent foam called Cloud.
