Does anyone remember Dwyane Wade’s alter ego ‘Flash’ that was given to him by former teammate Shaquille O’neal? Yeah, neither does Wade. Dwyane did bring his superstar power to the brand (officially announced last week), and while Wade might not be part of this pack of Superhero-inspired releases (Flash is a DC Universe fella), this ‘Avengers’ Pack couldn’t have arrived at a better time as Li-Ning continues to be a trend in sneaker circles. These were originally a sample for the third quarter of 2012, but with that season come and gone, maybe this set of releases won’t ever happen? Although these have no connection whatsoever to Marvel Comics, it’s clear that Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Captain America, and Thor were the inspiration for these impressive colorways, so check out the gallery below and we’ll let you know if Li-Ning plans to move forward with this release.

In another exhibition game between the Miami Heat and Los Angeles Clippers in China, Dwyane Wade wore this White/Grey/Black/Red colorway of his Li-Ning Way of Wade dubbed the ‘Shanghai Edition’. This is the second known colorway signifying a major city of China (the first being the Black/Gold ‘Beijing’ that was featured a few days ago), and both share the skewed grid graphic on the toe and the circular logo on the heel. There are still a few intriguing details of the Way of Wade that could use some clarification, like the aforementioned logo and the graphics on the outsole of the shoe, so check out the extra angles of the ‘Shanghai’ Way of Wade and we’ll keep you posted on more Li-Ning Wade news.

One of the dominant stories of the week was the announcement and details of Dwyane Wade’s partnership with Li-Ning, but aside from all the bells and whistles, it’s the sneakers that matter to us. From there, we can make the proper judgement of whether or not the Wade-Ning deal is one to take seriously, or one that’ll fall on the wayside in favor of other established brands. This first detailed look at the Li-Ning Way of Wade reveals some impressive details and design cues that we haven’t really come to expect from Li-Ning based on previous designs for Baron Davis and Evan Turner; the padded and ribbed tongue, the skewed grid pattern on the toe-box, the funky ‘W’ structure of the laces – the Way of Wade is certainly headed in the right direction. A detailed viewing of the Black/Gold “Beijing Edition” colorway is right ahead, so give it a serious examination and let us know what your opinions are of the shoe.

Growing up in Chicago, Dwyane Wade idolized Michael Jordan, so it was a great honor for him to follow in his hero’s footsteps and represent the Jumpman for Jordan Brand. That partnership has ended and a new one has been formed, this time with Dwyane pulling another move out of MJ’s playbook, albeit for a different team now. It has already been reported that Wade will be joining Li-Ning, but the plot thickens a bit, as it looks like there will be a little more to the story. Like Mike branched out on his own with his own signature brand, Dwyane will be partnering with Li-Ning to launch WADE Brand, a division still operating under Li-Ning, but centered around all things D-Wade. The “Way of Wade” will be his first signature shoe as seen below and in previous posts, and will be followed by additional models, apparel and even gear for kids. Read more about today’s big announcement after the jump and stick with us for more on this intriguing new endeavor.
