Dwyane Wade unveils a new colorway of his Way of Wade 8 which pays homage to his draft night in 2003.

Dwyane Wade has unveiled a new colorway of his eighth signature show with Chinese sportswear brand, Li-Ning, which pays homage to his draft night in 2003.

This new offering of the Way of Wade 8 arrives with several different textured materials all over the shoe. Unfortunately we don’t have the clearest look at the shoes, but the heel appears to use a variety of denim-esque materials, while the forefoot uses Li-Ning’s patented Cordura material which as a unique graphic texture to it in this colorway. Red stitching can be seen at the heel, along with a rope-like exaggerated pull tab. Further details include the words from Wade’s press conference at Marquette when Wade announced he’d be declaring for the NBA Draft, “I’m gonna take my talents to the NBA and see what the future holds for Dwyane Wade.” In addition, the shoe also features the words from the late commissioner David Stern when Wade was drafted, “With the 5th pick in the 2003 NBA Draft, the Miami Heat select Dwyane Wade.”
