Li-Ning Way of Wade 7 Review

Pros:
Premium materials
Comfortable cushioning
Cons:
Very slippery on dusty courts

Performance of the Li-Ning Way of Wade 7:

The Way of Wade 7 gets mixed reviews. In general, reviewers weren't happy about how the traction performed. Especially on dusty courts, there was a lot of slipping and the outsole is not easy to wipe. The cushioning is a little less soft than in the Way of Wade 6, but it's still very comfortable and plush. The highlights of the WOW 7 are definitely the premium materials and the great build quality - these shoes will last a long time! Overall, at $165 there are better performers out there, but if you play on clean courts and you're a fan of Dwyane Wade, give these a chance!

On a clean court, the traction is really good. But this shoe attracts a lot of dust and is rather difficult to wipe.

The traction was solid; they do pick up dust on dirtier courts but as long as you keep up on your wipes, you will be fine.

I slipped. Often. Actually, nearly every time I played in them

Impact protection in the heel is really nice and the forefoot feels a little like Boost with a very nice compression. This is one of my favorite cushion setups.

Great impact protection and a very comfortable ride.

The step-in comfort is amazing, but they feel pretty dead under-foot.

The shoe makes sure that our foot is secure and glued to the footbed.

Support is good, but the shoe is very stiff because of it.
