Li-Ning Way of Wade 2 ‘Overtown’

These look much better than the Announcement colorway – my opinion only of course.

The white helps blend in the little details that felt awkward to me with a black based colorway. Its mostly the toe area… I don’t mind panels and overlays of materials but I don’t particularly like when material is made to look as if it has overlays or panels when it doesn’t. That whole VacTech and embossed material pattern just looks strange to my eyes. I love how these turned out and I can’t wait to see more.

I still think the traction will make or break these in terms of performance but so far I like the shoe with this color blocking. Check out the detailed images below and let me know what you think.

  1. The whole outsole is textured so it can’t be too bad. I think lateral movements will be fine but I don’t know about front to back.

    1. The texture is so shallow that it wont matter too much. The way the lines are in place look a bit off for certain movements which is why I think the rubber might be soft or really hard. If soft it’ll be pliable and grip easily, if hard then the texture will come into play and grip the floor properly as well. Anything in between and you’ll be slipping around. This will be an interesting shoe thats for sure. I hope they fit just as snug as the WoW 1 bc I love the fit on those.

  2. I like this CW much better as well. I think a Warrior CW with some patent leather and the 305 with it’s grey/cement may look even better. According to SC, this is one of 6 colorways slated for release in the US, so hells yeah for that!

  3. man, these look so dope….dude that said they look like the 2s above ain’t lyin’, the 2s also happen to my favorite jordans from a design perspective…

  4. I wanna like em but I feel like if I like them like I did the last ones and they dont release here so I have to pay 300 for them, that will be terrible and a no go.

  5. I wish that Li-Ning was popular enough to have stores in the U.S. I really like these shoes but there will probably be nowhere to find them, especially if someone has a shoe size of 12 or over. I think that the company will be a big hit in the U.S. later on though.
