Li-Ning is slowly making their name known here in the states. We first heard of them when they hooked up with Baron Davis, and now we have a little more to look at with the Jose Calderson PE.
Seen here in an upper that is a combination of black and red patent leather, it is clear the intent was to make a bold statement with this PE. The ribbed toe box is echoed across the side panel and give hte shoe a character of its own. Jose’s number, “8” is seen in red of the medial ankle and the Li-Ning logo is seen on the opposite. Not forgetting his roots, a Spanish flag can be seen through the translucent outsole and the words “humility” and “sacrifice” appear across the top of the toe box. Finally, Jose’s signature icon appears on the tongue in his trademark three-finger pose.
