ACU x Li-Ning Way of Wade 10 “Best Scholar”

After collaborating on a pair of 50/50 skate shoes earlier this year, Shanghai-based retailer ACU and sportswear giant Lining reunite for a special edition of Dwayne Wade’s Way of Wade 10 basketball shoes.

As students return to school in September, the duo create an intricate “Top Scholar” colorway featuring two mythical Chinese figures riding laser-printed Shan-Shui artwork. The detail-rich uppers feature a patterned wood finish incorporating ACU’s acupuncture logos with Dwayne Wade’s signature icon and stylized logo text. Splashes of jade are teased along the midfoot and pull tabs while hints of burgundy and gold can be found on accent plates and contrast stitching. Rounding out the design are heel banners showcasing ten Wade tips, carbon accents along the sides and bottom, and wavy outsoles.

The package includes an engraved bamboo scroll and a grain shoe pouch. Custom Dwayne Wade jerseys with similar branded accents are also available with the set.

Take an official look at the ACU x Li-Ning Way of Wade 10 “Top Scholar” above and look for pairs to drop on September 1 via Li-Ning’s on line and offline channels for ¥1,699 RMB (about $246). Quantities are limited to 333 pairs.

Elsewhere in the shoe, ESENES WORLDWIDE makes custom Cubone clogs.
