The Li-Ning Way of Wade 5 ‘Announcement’ is a tribute to Dwyane Wade’s decision to join China’s Li-Ning Sports.
Once again, the Announcement edition features a Black, Red and White color combination. This Li-Ning Way of Wade 5 uses Black through the base while Red lands on the tongue, collar, logo on the heel and laces. Finishing the look is a White midsole with a semi-translucent outsole.
The upper construction represents the WoW5 “Mesh Version” which is a unique layering of textiles and reflective materials to create a seamlessly modern new textile material package. The external upper pattern straps and heel counter are reinforced strong from the backside and made of highly-reflective materials. The internal bootie and tongue feature a updated comfort-focused construction as well. The sole mixes a semi-clear white rubber in the forefoot with semi-clear red rubber in the heel. The sole is supported with an internal carbon fiber mid foot shank which uses a classic black carbon fiber weave on this colorway. The sole intuitively cradles the upper using a newly designed dual-duometer TPU clip system, maximizing ideal lateral support and heel stability on-court.
