It looks like Li-Ning is going back to basics with their upcoming Way of Wade 4, and I couldn’t be any happier.
You can see in the breakdown below that they’ve ditched their 4-Layered system previously used on the WoW 3, and went with their traditional tooling setup that we’ve all gotten accustomed to from the start of the line. BounSe is found in the forefoot while CushioN is placed in the heel. All of which is supported by an EVA/ Phylon carrier. They’ve reduced the size of the carbon fiber shank – finally – which used to extend from the midfoot all the way through the forefoot; causing the shoe to be very stiff and rigid. An Ortholite liner and rubber outsole are also in place…but that’s nothing new.
