The latest colorway of the Li-Ning Way of Wade 4, dubbed “Team No Sleep,” has now arrived at retailers nationwide.

Noted as a staple colorway of the lineage since its introduction with the WoW 1, the all-nighter theme is essentially a representation of Wade’s business partners and family members, whom he relies on to keep his operations running smoothly. Flaunting a subtle and understated makeup overall, Black comprises the majority of its upper, while Grey accents on the tongue, laces and collar section provide a complementing contrast. Other notable include a triangular pattern gracing the eyelets in its respective colorway.

Furthermore, the sole unit incorporates clear blue rubber accents, which is a signature to many of Dwyane’s TNS shoes from past seasons, mixed with solid white rubber traction pods and a black solid rubber pivot point for superior traction. Finishing touches include more distinctive branding evident on the tongue tab, side panels, rear portion and outsole, in addition to matching laces.

You can find this latest pair at Li-Ning stockists now for a retail price tag of $190.

Author’s Take

Design-wise, I think it’s appealing but I’ll pass since I’m already biased towards other brands, especially with that price tag. I’ve never really paid attention to this lineage, but since the colorway is a tradition, fans of the model should be happy.
