Dwyane Wade's new Li-Ning sneakers revealed


The big splash announcement of Dwyane Wade’s new deal with Chinese sneaker company Li-Ning is expected Wednesday during the Miami Heat’s exhibition tour of the company.

But photos of Wade’s new signature shoe are already popping up around the Internet after Chinese sneaker site Kenlu posted them over the weekend. The shoe, mostly black with touches of white, are unlike Li-Ning’s other basketball models.
