D-Wade Talks Alejandro Ingelmo X Li-Ning Callabo
Wade collaborated with designer Alejandro Ingelmo, on the metallic-cast shoe. Ingelmo was selected as the line’s creative consultant in 2012, when Wade surprised the sports world by opting out of his longstanding partnership with Nike’s Jordan brand. Wade unveiled the collection at the Ritz Carlton Residencies during the height of Miami Art Basel. For his own attire, he paired a shimmery gold and black pair with a sleek black Giorgio Armani jacket. The sneakers are also available in black and silver and purple and black combinations and will retail for $325 each. Wade spoke to Life+Times about the design process and how the city of Miami has cultivated his creative spirit.
