The Way of Wade 8 “First Born”: a Tribute to D-Wade’s Son Zaire 

One of the most futuristic basketball sneakers, the WOW8 comes packed to the brim with top tier tech and innovation. The first looks from last year showed us just how technical these were, with a pulled apart WOW8 motif splayed across the table, in close to 100 individual pieces. It uses many different materials, with leather, synthetics, and Cordura fabrics along the upper and plenty of support pieces. Carbon fiber is seen too, with a full length spring plate on the WOW series. The midsole uses Li-Ning’s energy-returning tech, BOOM. At the same time, this design reflects the past, telling tales of Dwyane Wade’s career and life, through every single detail. The wavy, high to low rise midsole literally reflects the champion’s DNA, and the latest colourway, the “First Born” takes this to yet another level, with the pair being dedicated to D-Wade’s firstborn son, and likely NBA player, Zaire Wade. The pair dropped with a black ballistic mesh, and lightning-strike graphics across the length. Seen also is the aforementioned midsole piece, in metallic gold, which is then wrapped by a smoke-black rubber outsole. The hardware and laces take on a black approach, with lines taking on a vivid red. Hits of golden 3D embroidery at the heel and forefoot strap finishes the design off.
