Li-Ning Way of Wade 10 Review

Pros:
Incredibly bouncy cushioning
Amazing traction
Cons:
High price tag
Soft rubber isn't suitable for outdoors

Performance of the Li-Ning Way of Wade 10:

Reviewers describe the cushioning on the Way of Wade 10 as incredibly bouncy. It's easily the most raved-about feature of the shoe. Its outsole traction is soft and grippy, perfect for indoor play. The materials are lightweight and perform well, but reviewers mention they could be more premium based on the shoe's price. Support and lockdown aren't an issue. There were no reported problems from any reviewers. Li-Ning and Dwyane Wade's latest signature model, the Way of Wade 10, is an excellent basketball shoe that can contend for performance shoe of the year.

mind-blowingly good shoe. Plays fast, doesn't feel too high. Cushioning is peak, has the plushness of boost with the bounce of zoom. Great for athletic players who need to remain quick-footed but love a bit of explosiveness when going to the rack or playing above the rim. Support and materials have me feeling locked in and taken care of. Traction is a beast too. Best shoe I've tried in a while no doubt.

Fantastic shoe. Great traction and lockdown. Reminds me of a better version of the 2017 adidas crazy explosives ( the wow 10 have better cushion and a more comfortable fut). Those were some of my all time favorite shoes. Of all the shoes I've tried this year these are my favorites ( kd14, kd15, jordan 36, kyrie infinity, kawhi 2's, and the mb.01 )

The WOW 10 is a great shoe. Traction is great, cushion feels good and you can definitely feel the carbon fiber shank plate given a propelling feeling. I probably wouldn’t ever pay retail again for a shoe this expensive, but it’s a really good performer. Hopefully a Low comes out that is under $200.

These are some of the best gripping shoes I've ever tried on indoor hardwood, but because of the thin tread patterns, they don't grip as well outdoors.

If you're playing on a clean court, the performance is solid. The shoes do need a bit of a break-in period, though.

The outsole looks fantastic. It should grip heavily indoors.

The star of the cushioning setup is the carbon fibre shank that Li-Ning includes. When combined with the TPU-based foam, it provides plenty of explosiveness.

Li-Ning's full-length Boom cushion feels outstanding, but the Strobel board is the real star of this shoe. The shoe has great impact protection while also feeling explosive.

The full-length Boom cushion feels bouncier in this model than last year's. It's a great setup for players looking for bounciness.

The shape of the shoe is more ergonomic than other shoes. It accommodates the actual shape of a foot. The fit of this shoe will accommodate people with heel pain, arch pain, and especially ball of foot pain.

The shoe conforms to your foot well overall. The toe box is slightly narrow, and the shoe kind of snug, too.
