The baller donned his new team’s uniform on Friday in the Windy City and teamed the look with a pair of his Li-Ning Way of Wade 4 sneakers in complementary Beijing red colorways.
The sneakers feature a red upper supported by triple-layered meshes and a white midsole made of foam pads for high absorption. Other performance bells and whistles include a lower collar line around the ankle that supports court mobility and an outsole that has strengthens stability and propulsion.
The Chinese brand announced Thursday on Twitter a contest for a chance to win a pair of signed kicks from its star athlete.
“All the way . Don’t sleep on a chance to win a @dwyanewade signed shoe! Post a pic of the court u rep! #IFIGHT4”
The former Miami Heat star signed with Li-Ning after his endorsement deals with Nike subsidiary Jordan Brand ended in 2012.
Speaking to Footwear News at Variety and Sports Illustrated’s Sports and Entertainment Summit earlier in July, the baller said he’s eager to see his shoe line broaden its influence.
“When I decided to sign with Li-Ning, a Chinese brand, I looked at the future — what could we possibly do, what we could possibly build internationally,” he shared. “I’ve been four years in that, and we could do a lot better. I’m excited to see where the next three or four years will take us.”
