Dwyane Wade stated that getting his own Jordan Brand signature was a dream come true and now that his Miami Heat have locked up the Eastern Conference’s second seed, time has come for D-Wade to turn his attention to helping LeBron James achieve his own and win an NBA Championship. The playoffs start this Saturday and we’d expect to see Dwyane debut his Air Jordan Fly Wade on court around that time. The lightest basketball shoe JB has ever created, its above pictured colorway could be considered the ‘away’ Fly Wade, its classic Bred styling and ice sole vaguely reminiscent of the Air Jordan XI Michael himself wore en route to a chip some fifteen years ago. And it’s worth noting that this pair features a more aggressive blocking scheme than the model slated for a May 5th release we showed you earlier this month. No word yet on whether this is an update of that sample version or if both will see retail releases, so be sure to stick with Sneaker News for updates. And in the mean time, you can click through to get a better look at the black and red Fly Wades and if you happen to rock a US mens size 12, grab a pair early from Marquee Sole.
