Dwyane Wade is a busy man. When he’s not analyzing the NBA for TNT or guessing between cheap and expensive wine for “Bon Appétit,” the 13-time NBA All-Star is prepping footwear for the future with his Li-Ning family. The Way of Wade Essence 2 – which borrows design cues from the basketball-ready Way of Wade 9 – is the latest entry into the partnership’s stored catalog.

Unquestionably rooted in lifestyle, Li-Ning’s Essence series has long enjoyed some of the most accessible styles offered by the Chinese institution. With Wade’s input, however, the line’s newest addition looks years into the future for inspiration, bringing the brand’s unique three-segment sole unit to 2022. Furthermore, durable CORDURA® fabric makes up most of the high-top model’s upper, further injecting a utilitarian and highly-technical aesthetic into the pair. Semi-translucent lace loops, a speed-lacing system and mix of other details across the Essence 2 “Futuristic” also help the shoe differentiate itself from its competition.
