Performance of the Li-Ning Way of Wade 6:

The 6th signature sneaker of Dwyane Wade is a very good overall performer. The traction does a good job on all surfaces and requires only minimal wiping on dusty courts. Other than most guard shoes, the cushioning of the Way of Wade is very comfortable and provides great impact protection while sacrificing some responsiveness. Overall, this is a great shoe for players with slightly wider feet that are looking for a comfortable sneaker and want to try something else than the Nike's or Adidas everybody else is wearing.

Materials and cushion are great, support and traction are solid. With a few tweaks this could have been the sneaker of the year!

Very comfortable, really nice traction - I love the performance of these. The only downside is the lateral containment and the excessive toe room.

The Way of Wade 6 is a solid performer, and I enjoy this shoe a lot. I find myself going to this sneaker just about much as I go to my Dame 4s.

The cushioning is by far the best part of this shoe. This is the perfect combination of comfort, impact protection, and responsiveness.

The upper material stretches too much on lateral cuts. Heel lockdown was pretty good though.

External heel counter, broad base and the ankle strap provide great stability and support.

The partial bootie upper does a great job of containing the foot keeping it in place.
