Baron Davis made waves in the fall of 2008 when he left Reebok to sign with Li-Ning. The Chinese-based sneaker and apparel company is set to release Davis’ second signature shoe on February 15. Li-Ning’s BD Doom will release in five different colorways and will be the shoe’s first US-based online launch.

Briefly, the colorways follow as,

White/Red (Home)
Black/Red (Away)
Blue (Snakeskin)
Red (Snakeskin)
White/Blue/Yellow (UCLA)].
