Dubbed by some as China’s Father of Modern Olympics, gymnast Li Ning’s feat of 6 medals (3 gold, 2 silver, 1 bronze) at the 1984 Summer Olympics re-kindled the once insular nation of 1 billion people of its aspiration to become an Olympic powerhouse. The same could be say of the company Li Ning established in 1990, Li-Ning Limited, which is making an inroad into markets once dominated by likes of Nike, adidas, and Reebok.
Starting with its newly opened flagship store in Portland, Oregon, not far from Nike World Headquarter and Adidas North America Headquarter, coincide with the launch of its first signature model footwear – the Baron Davis BD Doom for Los Angeles Clippers Guard Baron Davis. Both are now followed by a special t-shirt collection. It features 6 distinctive graphics, each depicts an aspect of Davis’ life, from the night scape of his hometown of Los Angeles, highlight of his 2007 playoff- “posterizing” dunk over Andrei Kirilenko on the front with the comic-styled “BOOM!”, Davis’ free spirit attitude, to the special Beardman caricature created by Li-Ning. Each design comes in black or white and printed with water-based ink. All are now available at Li-Ning’s official online store and its flagship at Portland.
