Dwyane Wade Debuts Sneaker Celebrating His 13th NBA Season

Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade and Taylor Swift have something in common: They both believe in lucky number 13. Wade appeared on stage with Swift last night during her concert at American Airlines Arena in Miami, home of the Heat.

Swift has famously called 13 her lucky number for years. Last night, Wade presented Swift with a Heat jersey bearing the number 13.

Wade is also debuting his newest signature sneaker in his line of Way of Wade shoes with Beijing-based athletic brand Li Ning. The WoW 4.0 Lucky 13 drops today at 3 p.m. ET on WayofWade.com and at The Edition Boutique in Miami.


The shoe’s tongue features 13 lightning bolts representing 13 NBA seasons, and three of the bolts are gold for Wade’s three championship wins. Earlier this week, Li Ning debuted the WoW 4.0 Liberty turquoise sneakers.


The sneakers will be offered in 18 colorways through July 2016. The new design boasts layered mesh and an internal strap system for a lighter feel. The WoW 4.0 25 Years, which celebrates Li Ning’s 25th anniversary, will be released on Nov. 25.

Li Ning’s Wade Team includes Heat center Udonis Haslem, Portland Trailblazers forward Dorell Wright and Chinese Basketball Association player Muhtar Xirelijiang.

The Heat tip off tonight against the Charlotte Hornets at 7:30 p.m. in Miami.
