QFT. This is a lateral move at best as far as his sneakers designs go. Nike/JB weren't doing him any favours with their Team Jordan (outlet fodder) kicks.

Off topic but Wade can definitely improve his 'brand' in the Far East which could do wonders for his post-NBA career.

shoes look really long, almost clownlike on his feet. not good when marketing them.
i remember him debuting the welcome home 2010s... not a good look.

The fly Wades weren't too bad. Good Hoop kicks..

I'm sure JB won't miss him.

Good move for both parties. Wade shoes can't look any worse, and JB has one less hideous shoe to produce.

Miss the old days when JB athletes wore PE retros and Team J's. They try to hard to make sig shoes for Melo / CP3, and the result is always horrendous.

Wonder what his "stylist" will do with Li-nings in the rotation instead of retros for casual wear.

One of the most ridiculous dressers in the league won't have retros to save (but not really) his outfit.

After Kobe, D. Wade is the next player I enjoy watching the most. With that said, I have always said this and will say it again. If D. Wade had just signed with Nike (not JB), he would have sold out many shoes (funny thing eventhough he is second on my list, I am glad he didn't sign with Nike, to save my pockets, LOL)! Thing is even though JB has superstar caliber players on their roster, do to Jordan retros and flagship models being the focus for the brand and consumers, these players will always fall second to Jordan retros and flagship models. Bottomline D. Wade needs a Nike sig period.

Jordan sigs are terrible so id leave JB too if they made trash for me.
post #17 of 4960

I think it's awkward, you can't really be branded as an athlete on Jordan brand... because the brand doesn't focus on you, it focuses on JORDAN. Jordan is an icon, but a very recent one, therefore his legacy is still fresh. Trying to call a shoe the Air Jordan Melo or Jordan Fly Wade or Jordan CP3, it's just strange. Nike is much better about branding it's athletes, because they create their own thing instead of having to live up to other expectations.

Well said! 'Nike' is identifiable through many different athletes, however 'Jordan' is identifiable only through MJ himself. In essense all the sigs (CP3, Melo, Wade) are merely team shoes.
post #19 of 4960
It is a lateral move. Only loss on his part is less access to retros when he's not on the court, but I'm sure he doesn't care about that. No huge shift here.

He should do it if the compensation is right. JB sigs are disgusting.

I was actually looking foward to Fly Wade 3. I'm a fan of the Fly Wade 2 and 2 EV. Lunarlon was great on court. But yes I agree, had he gone to Nike instead he probably would got a better sig line.

Nike sigs>JB "sigs"

Right now he's the face of JB. If they want to continue moving forward with their performance line, they need to make sure he stays.  His sig line needs a complete retooling and some new designers.

post #24 of 4960
He could probably make a lot of money in China if thats what he's about and no hate but if he stays with JB just let him wear the 2013's and retro PE's in Miami CW's. Always loved seeing his PE's pimp.gif...JB sig shoes honestly suck. Actually wouldn't mind seeing him in some Nike Sig's as well

If he signs with Li-Ning I can see him having a Kevin Love/Steve Nash type deal where he's allowed to wear other brands. I mean every off-court pic of D-Wade I see he's always wearing some custom or limited J's and I'm sure he doesn't have to. Should be interesting to see what happens with him.

Aesthetically...absolutely. To be honest, the Jordan Fly Wade 2 is one of the BEST shoes I've ever worn on the basketball court. They are fantastic basketball shoes, probably one of my favorites of all time. But they do need to step it up and couple performance with craftsmanship and good looks. He's a great athlete and he deserves better.

This. Performance-wise, I loved both the Fly Wade 1 & 2 as they're nearly identical. Both are solid shoes...

Basically. I was just telling my friend the other day Wade line is that hot garbage

post #28 of 4960
I can't see him leaving JB. As much as he idolized Jordan and all. Yes I'm sure $$$ talks but all they need to start doing is making not only his, but Melo (NY now) and CP (LA now) shoes a bit more appealing to the customers.I thought his were if you didn't put his name on them they would just be TEAM another shoe for JB. Hopefully Dwade and JB will allow fans make him a shoe like they did melo. the future sole (??) melos were nice.
