li ning yu shuai banpo se iii 07 Li Ning Yu Shuai Banpo Special Edition III

Chinese upstart Li-Ning is doing its best to make a mark in the sneaker world, dropping a special edition release of their Yu Shuai Banpo III inspired by the heritage designs of historical Chinese art. This caramel colored shoe comes in a variety of materials, with suede, leather, and velvet all finding their way on to the varied upper. This unique basketball shoe comes with a breathable upper, displayed by the holes lining the midfoot section, and a nice strap up top to complement the unconventional lacing system. Li-Ning certainly isn’t losing any points for originality on this one, but is it a shoe you could see yourself in? Let us know in the comments if you like what you see, and keep reading to get a better look at this special edition Yu Shuai Banpo III. via: sina.

Li-Ning ‘Big Shamrock’ Shaquille O’neal Finals PE

li ning big shamrock shaq finals pe 06 Li Ning Big Shamrock Shaquille Oneal Finals PE

Shaquille O’neal announced his retirement yesterday, giving his fans the first-hand message through a TwitVid. It was by no means an official press conference, but Shaq is a man who makes firm statements and does what he can to stick by them. The four-time NBA champion and one-time MVP (a number that some argue should be greater) leaves behind a career filled with utter low-post dominance and unparalleled charisma. Beginning his career with the Orlando Magic, Shaq spent his final season with the Boston Celtics, adopting the ‘Big Shamrock’ moniker, and had the Celtics reached the NBA Finals, a healthy Shaq would have worn this Li-Ning PE called the’Big Shamrock’, featuring a white/green/dark grey colorway and a Superman x Shamrock logo on the upper ankle of the shoe. Unfortunately, Shaq never got a opportunity to wear these PEs and no longer will he get to lace up sneakers on an NBA court (barring an improbable comeback), but something tells us his TwitVid isn’t the last of Shaquille O’neal (Shaq and Barkley hosting NBA on TNT?). Check out Shaq’s PE after the jump and let us know what your favorite all-time Shaq moment is. via sina.

Li-Ning MIX

March 12th, 2011 by | No comments

20110309225650531 570x380 Li Ning MIX

Li-Ning has made their name here in the States with a combination of savvy marketing and wild aesthetics and this latest model presents the Chinese shoemaker with a chance to nail both.  The Li-Ning MIX is something like Nike Presto and DiamondFLEX technologies combined, but instead of some kind of hybrid trunner, these take the mashup theme even further by allowing you to disassemble the shoe into its constituent bootie, sole and cage components.  Presumably, you could swap out different pairs to make your own unique colorways, though we can’t help but think it’d be dope were they to offer the option to purchase the parts individually.  Click through to see more of the Li-Ning MIX and let us know how you feel about one of the wildest sneaker designs we’ve seen here on Sneaker News, maybe ever.  via Dunk
