  1. I know Li Ning and the Wade line are a “niche” product but I really feel they’re dropping the ball with availability and good colorways. I’ve seen several colorways teased online but they haven’t released. Wade’s worn some killer PE’s as well. I really want to try these but I’m not gonna just pick up the “Veterans Day” colorway because its the only one available in my size. This colorway is nice but I’ve seen several others teased that I would prefer. I guess I will keep waiting.

  2. Also, dropping the ball by not making any larger sizes of the shoe. Let’s be honest, a lot of ballplayers are bigger guys with bigger feet. I mean, if they were running shoes, you could stop at 13. But not basketball shoes. Seriously.

    I hear they’re a great shoe, but I’ll never know.

  3. The Way of Wade 6 Satori Colorway dropped in larger sizes 14.5 and 15. If you add an insole the 14.5 fits like a 14 would. Not a bad option considering they wont be releasing a size 14 this year it seems.

      1. Just ordered the 14.5. Thanks again for the tip. You know, as I’ve gotten older my shoe size has increase. Was a 13 for years (like 13 1/4 but just wore a 13), then I had to go to a 13.5, and now I’m in a straight 14. This all happened in the last year or so. Now I have a ton of pristine 13 hooping shoes boxed up in my closet. May have to start putting them up on eBay.

        Thanks again.

  4. Agree with the commenters above. They have teased some good colors and they aren’t releasing so what’s the point. They still haven’t even come out with a BRED color yet and I mean, that should be standard based on the previous trends with the “announcement” being a staple colorwat for Wade. I get that he’s not a Bull or Heat player anymore but still. I’m not going to grab just any color for the sake of it.
