Li-Ning is definitely a rising star in the US footwear industry. Already a major player in their home country, the brand has been releasing stand-out silhouettes for a number of years. Pictured here is the Li-Ning Yu Shuai V.Dubbed the “Wooden Cow”, a name derived from the wooden cow vehicles that are used for military transport, the model breathes an air of luxury into a clearly basketball focused performer.
The upper is covered in a wood-grain like colorway that is lightly accented with white. Tonal stitching keep the theme consistent, while a touch of turquoise on the insole and on the heel provide just the right amount of deep color to the shoe. Finally, the heel displays Chinese which translates to “˜transportation’ and “˜innovation’. Feel free to share your thoughts on the model in the comments.
