Having begun in 2012, the partnership between leading Chinese sportswear brand Li-Ning and Dwyane Wade continues with the launch of the Way of Wade 4, which will encompass a total of 18 styles over the next 12 months. First up is the “Liberty,” scheduled to release on October 23rd, featuring a performance driven design with a layered mesh upper, internal strap system and full-length interior bootie for a snug, comfortable fit. An upgraded sole unit houses an aggressively molded 3D carbon fiber shank, making the shoe as strong and resilient as it is lightweight. On the aesthetic front, a triangulated fractal pattern is reminiscent of lines created from zhezhi, or Chinese paper folding. Following the “Liberty,” the subsequent WoW4 styles take the form of the Lucky 13 (October 28th) and 25th Anniversary (November 25th).
