What Was Up With Dwyane Wade’s Li-Ning Way Of Wade 2 “Ring Night” Sneakers?

Last night, the Miami Heat received their 2012-13 championship rings prior to their season-opening game against the Chicago Bulls. And in addition to getting their rings, a number of them also received special sneakers to wear during the game from the various sneaker companies that they endorse. LeBron James wore a special pair of the Nike LeBron XI sneakers, while Ray Allen opted for a PE colorway of the Air Jordan XI sneakers. But Dwyane Wade made arguably the biggest statement when he stepped out on the court in a pair of Li-Ning Way of Wade 2 “Ring Night” sneaker that were, well, loud, to say the least.

In general, we have been big fans of what Wade has done with Li-Ning over the course of the last year or so. We enjoyed most of the Way of Wade 1 colorways and really like that he didn’t change up too much with the Way of Wade 2 sneakers. But we were not big fans of the “Ring Night” colorway that he debuted during last night’s game. Most of the other sneakers that Heat players wore featured subtle nods to the fact that they had won a championship last year. But the Way of Wade 2 “Ring Night” sneakers were way over the top with large hits of gold and purple throughout. We see what Wade was going for here, but we don’t love the execution of this sneaker and think it could have been done more tastefully.

Do you agree with that assessment of the Way of Wade 2 “Ring Night”? If so, then you’ll be pleased to know that Wade will most likely not be wearing these sneakers again this season. But if for whatever reason you disagree with us and think that these sneakers are dope, then we’ve got some good news for you: The Way of Wade 2 “Ring Night” is actually available for sale down in Miami right now. There aren’t very many pairs available—and they’re selling for the steep price of $250—but you can get your hands on a pair, if you choose to do so.

We won’t be lining up for a pair anytime soon. But what do you think about the sneakers that Wade chose to celebrate the Heat’s ring ceremony in? Let us know in the comments section below.
