As many of you know, Dwyane Wade is widely regarded as one of the more well-dressed athletes. Li-Ning recognized this, as well as Dwyane's keen sense for design and knack for branding, and let him work alongside lead designer Eric Miller. "Dwyane's got a highly-tuned sense of style and performance in what he needs from an on-court perspective and from a style standpoint," Miller says. The overall sense of the forthcoming Wade line is that it is a "very unique animal." The initial Way of Wade shoe showcases many aspects that are closely connected with D-Wade — the consistent use of the "W" throughout, the tongue inspired by a prior GQ shoot with Dwyane, the circular "WADE" logo, and family connections on the bottom of the sneaker.
