The Li-Ning Way of Wade line has had a cult like following among sneakerheads.  This new WOW3 “Grey Boys” pair looks to win over a few more.

Li-Ning is known for using beautiful materials when compared to other similarly priced more expensive basketball signature models. This pair does not disappoint in this area, the upper is entirely wrapped in a premium speckled nubuck.  There is also a speckle midsole and a black tongue, liner and translucent outsole attempting to calm the speckle-fest.

For those who plan to ball in the sneaker, it features a “fractal, geometry inspired” design; as well as both of Li-Ning’s specialized foams, BOUNSE and CUSHION in the midsole.

The “Grey Boys” are available now at Li-Ning retailers world-wide. What do you think of the Way of Wade line?  How does this “Grey Boys” release stack up to the colors before it?   Sound off in the comments below!

Author’s take: While I do not hoop in them, I really like the WOW 2.  I fell in love with the attention to detail and premium materials Li-Ning brings to the line consistently.  I however, do not like the WOW3.  The shape seems odd to me, specifically, it seems to have an awkwardly long gate.

I really do hope people try Li-Ning though.  Once you get past their hilariously ESL (English as a second language) named technologies (BOUNSE and CUSHION, lol), they really do make a nice product.
