Wade needs to go to Adidas the are the next best brand after Nike and they need a little bit more star power they only have Dwight/Rose.

LiNing sucks.

Its sad that people spend so much money on these cheap shoes for "Style". all these guys care about is what shoe company will pay them more to endorse their cheap labor factory crap, they couldn't care less about the actual product.

Even sadder is most of the people that buy these sneakers at $130 are the ones that can least afford it.

Shaq and Starburys shoes were the best, they were affordable!

Wade must be getting outshined in the Jordan brand by Melo/CP3.All of Wade's Jordan shoes have been ugly,or maybe they are not paying him enough.

No, he is just being ignorant. You know, because all Asian basketball players came from China and played alongside Yao Ming. There are no such thing as Asian-Americans who developed their game state-side and made it to the NBA [sarcasm]:facepalm:

Wow, from Converse to Nike to Li Ning? Sounds like a literal example of 'to hell and back.'

I've tried Li Ning's running shoes and they are pretty amazing. Comfortable and you get pretty good support and performance out of them. It's so funny how people who don't know much about the shoe is ready to bash them calling them "cheap"

Airmax isn't its own division like Jordan or Converse. It's part of Nike.

Aside from that whether its Nike Jordan or whatever these shoes all cost like $5 to make in China/Korea/Pakistan/Vietnam/Indoenesia. They are all "cheap". None of them are made of fine materials or hand crafted etc..

Lmao so you're the typical chump that spends $200 on basketball shoes when they got probably less than $1 to make in wholesale. No wonder Nike CEOs are reaping in the money.

95% of shoes are made in a factory. im sure you many of them.

Sneakers wouldnt be durable for sports if they were all made of "Fine Materials" like Upper Calf, Crocodile, Ostrich, Lizard etc.

Nike has created and made new materials and textiles in the past decade, which is quite amazing.

Li Ning provides apparel and uniforms for Brian Scalabrine, so they must be good.

They also have numerous sweatshop factories with crappy quality control and you can't buy two pairs of different color Dunks or even Jordan 1s that look and feel the same even in the same size.

But hey... all I buy is Nikes and Jordans... so I'm not some sort of hater. But the truth is their shoes are quite cheaply made. Their glue work and stitching leave a lot to be desired at times.

They make them in the exact same place lol. The "Brand" is different, the quality is the same so its smart for Wade to move to a larger market.


Ha,no they can not.

Well thats because USA is in huge debt to those countries. Forces them to keep buying their products. USA needs them way more if they want to cover their debts.

Li-Ning shares had dropped more than 60 percent last year. Wade is desperate right now. He's declining athletically and his stardom is diminishing.

He must have gotten offered an obscene amount of money. Like, double what Jordan was giving him. Why else would he leave??

I don't think anyone would leave Jordan just for a little more money. It would have to be for a ****-ton!!!

Economically China can't survive without us because the USA is the largest consumer in the world, the rest of the world really don't consume China's goods like that.

LiNing sucks. I will never buy a pair. But hey, he's getting cash and that's all that matters to him. I guess it's a win for him, but the US fans lose.

Super.

Most of China's money comes from the US. If the US were to, hypothetically place a trade embargo with China, they would lose trillions of dollars. The US is Chinas biggest market by far.

Education? lolwut? You're clearly just spewing garbage out at this point. The US is 21st in the Education Index, while China is 98th. Workforce load? They have over a billion people in their country.

Your post is bad, and you should feel bad
