With Jordan Brand attempting to enter the high-end luxury sneaker market, Li-Ning seems to have something up their sleeves to stay relevant. Above is the Li-Ning Way of Wade ‘Diamond’, a shoe rumored to go on sale in the last quarter of 2014. Whether that means on sale in China in Q4 or on sale in North America in Q4 is hard to say.
The pink/red colorway rocks a very Yeezy-like build and the shoe does resemble many luxury high tops. It seems like 3D “diamonds” will make up the side panels, with minimal Way of Wade branding on the eyestay. They went crazy with leather on this Li-Ning lifestyle model. Leather is featured on the heel, ankle, and toebox, although it could be synthetic (Li-Ning is known to go with synthetics on their lifestyle models).
Which colorway is cleaner, white or pink/red? What do you think about the Li-Ning Way of Wade ‘Diamond’? Let us know in the comments below.
