Time to Lite it Up! Li-Ning Way of Wade 3 Lite Releasing on 7/9

We all know Li-Ning’s Way of Wade line is known for premium materials and quality craftsmanship. Unfortunately, that means having to sacrifice performance at times.  WoWs and most sneakers that featured premium leathers back in the day were heavy, bulky, and didn’t offer the best ventilation, flexibility, or break-in time.  Also, consider that Dwyane Wade didn’t really play much in the WoW 3, and preferred the WoW 808. (a team model)

However, he also played some in the WoW 3 Lite/Mesh.  The model substitutes premium materials for what appears to be mesh and fuse, much like most of Nike and adidas basketball models of today.  This version of the WoW 3 is set to drop in two colorways this Friday, 7/9, on both shop.wayofwade.com (Li-Ning USA) and The Edition Boutique in Miami, Florida (only store in the United States that carries WoWs)  The price tag is also a more affordable $135, compared to the usual $150 for WoW 3s.

It appears for now that shop.wayofwade.com will be getting both the “Grey Boys” and “Code Red” colorways of the WoW 3 Lite/Mesh, while The Edition Boutique will start off with the Grey Boys. (Phone Orders Only 305 279-5585) *UPDATE* The Edition Boutique will also be getting the WoW 3 Lite Code Red as well.  I have a feeling the WoW 3 Lite/Mesh will perform better on court than the regular WoW 3, and look forward to trying them out!
