Video: Customs Harasses Man Over Li-Ning Shoes

With NBA pros as diverse as Baron Davis, Evan Turner, Shaq and Hasheem Thabeet currently wearing Li-Ning, the Beijing-based company has to be highly innovative with its footwear. But the same can be said of its videos. Gerry Bednob (of The 40-Year-Old Virgin) and Donnell Rawlings (of Chappelle’s Show) play customs agents who stop a Li-Ning employee from bringing the F2 shoe — a foam frame sneaker — into America. The agents don’t believe they’re actually shoes because of their futuristic design and packaging, until they test them out — and love them.

    wasn’t Damon Jones the first cat rocking these shoes like way back in 06 or something……the originator lol…anyways these things are hideous on court and off.

    The packing is pretty crazy. And when did Shaq start wearing them? I may be out of the loop but doesnt he still have his own brand of shoes or does Li-Ning make them? If it is seperate, wouldn’t wearing these be against the better interest of that company, even if it is just a K-Mart or Payless brand?

    The video was okay. It was tacky, but so was the “Fast Don’t Lie” ones. I bought myself a pair or Li-Nings for like US$40 and have worn them for the past 3 or 4 weekend runs… they’re actually pretty comfy with good support.
