The Li-Ning Way of Wade 4 “Chinese New Year” colorway is available starting today at wayofwade.com with a retail tag of $190. Scroll through the photos above to get a closer look, and here’s more on the WoW4 CNY, direct from our friends at Li-Ning:
The WoW4 CNY celebrates the 2016 Chinese New Year, which is Year of the Monkey. According to the Chinese Zodiac Cycle, the colors white, blue, and metallic gold represent good luck, which set the foundation for the color-scheme. Also, the lucky flower of 2016, a chrysanthemum, inspired the geometric floral pattern printed across the upper’s 2D mesh, and again seen beneath the clear blue rubber on the sole. All upper overlay materials are blue reflective film and all logos are finished in metallic gold. To add the final touches, Dwyane’s tongue logo takes on a unique style with this colorway, inspired by Chinese art chop signatures, symbolizing a piece of art directly from Dwyane.
