Dwyane Wade had one of his best NBA All-Star Game performances on both the stat sheet as well as on the on-feet department. His All-Star kicks have been relatively lackluster throughout his entire career, but his Li-Ning Way of Wade ‘All-Star’ was a definite showstopper with the sick purple colorway and bubble graphics on the upper. Sneaker News gave you a first look at these when we spotted them at Wade’s party on Friday night, but these official images gives us a better look at a sneaker design that is unfolding before our eyes rather nicely. A gallery is just ahead so give them a look and keep the conversation going.

This shoe was made to represent that horrible time in DWade's life when he was infected with the Chicken Pox. #truestory
I've been feelin the wade li Nings people hate on em cuz there not Js or nike but the concept of thes r dope and a friend of mine has seen a pair and apparently the quality is on point only thing we need now is fucking North American release date wuts the hold up
Just don't work for me, not even with John K using phrases like "sick purple colorway and bubble graphics on the upper", hehe. Some nice images, not a bad looking shoe but I'm not impressed.
OK, the color is sick (the midsole and icy outsole too), but the bubble graphic is just silly. It's one detail too many.
I disagree. I feel the graphics give it originality and life. I'm kinda diggin these but that Wade logo is terrible plus Wade is a bit of a Dbag for my tastes
