Big changes for NBA baller Dwyane Wade as he announced that he parted ways with the Jordan brand. And has a new shoe coming out with an Asian shoe company. He shared recently,
"I did mutually part ways with the Jordan umbrella, with Jordan and Converse. I had great nine years but we have mutually parted ways and I'm moving on."
"We had a great three years. It's just the time. We went our separate ways. I still feel honored to have represented my favorite player of all time and his brand, and the opportunity I was given. I'm not disappointed at all."
Dwyane has partnered with Beijing-based footwear and apparel company Li-Ning. He tweeted a peek at his latest shoe (above, with his name inscribed at the top and "W" shaped shoelaces) earlier along with the tag #10/10, which most likely means the shoes will drop on the 10th of October.
