Confirmed: Dwyane Wade Leaves Jordan Brand For Li-Ning
Breaking news in the shoe world today as SneakerWatch has received confirmation that Dwyane Wade will no longer be repping Jordan Brand. Instead Wade has made his way to Chinese brand Li-Ning in a speculated multi-million dollar deal. No official words from either side yet but expect an announcement at the end of the month.
The move comes after 3 years with Jordan where Wade served as the temporary face of the signature Air Jordan line and which led to the development of two signature Fly Wade shoes. As Li-Ning continues its strides to make its presence felt in the NBA expect more big name athletes to follow along. For now look forward to the first Dwyane Wade x Li-Ning release and expect Jordan Brand to possibly add another hooper to their roster.
UPDATE: Dwyane Wade's Jordan contract is all but finished. The story and the confirmation of his departure still stand. Obviously because of legal issues neither side has yet to make a comment. SneakerWatch reported the story after learning from a source close to the situation that the move has been confirmed. Once Wade's Jordan Brand contract expires expect the official announcement to surface.
