Watch out, Nike! Dwyane Wade is on your heels!
That's right, folks — be on the lookout for WADE, a brand new clothing and footwear brand brought to you by Dwyane and his new partner Li-Ning.
Li-Ning just happens to be one of China's top sportswear production companies!
Wade will wear two pairs of Li-Ning sneakers at two pre-season Miami Heat exhibition games while in China against the Los Angeles Clippers this week — because it's all part of the deal!
Here's what he said:
"I first visited China in 2008, when I competed in the Beijing Olympics, and was deeply moved by the country's genuine passion for basketball. I have been blessed with an opportunity to make an impact on the game in the United States, and I look forward to now being active with the sport on a more global level."
We're eager to see what the line looks like, Dwyane!
In the mean time — are you going to be hooking up with Cam Newton to be promoting his fashion line for AFTER the game??
We don't know… just because you can wear great clothes doesn't necessarily mean you can design great clothes!
