The materials and stuff aren't the most premium-feeling materials but it's a really nice performer. The only thing I don't like about is the fit. For me, it is a little wide and a little roomy in the toe but other than that, really, really solid performer; I really enjoyed playing in this.
Now on its seventh release, the Wade All City line from Li-Ning continues to provide players with outdoor-ready signature kicks that don’t really break the bank.
The Wade AC7 is equipped with the Li-Ning Cloud for cushioning. It is an innovative type of foam that is known for being supportive and responsive.
The shoe has a Tuff rubber outsole. To ensure support and stability, it has a synthetic textile upper with fuse overlays. The shoe also has a criss-cross velcro strap that gets fastened on the rear lateral side. As if this is not enough, the shoe is still constructed with a central lacing system.
Cushion. The Wade AC 7 from Li-Ning is equipped with the LN-Cloud foam for cushioning. This material effectively absorbs impact energy and then releases it to fuel the wearer’s every step to the basket. This feature is further reinforced by a plush removable insole.
Traction. Because of the thickness and density of its Tuff rubber outsole, the Li-Ning Wade AC 7 is often described as a model that is suitable for the outdoors. To provide traction, the outsole is covered with a repeatedly occurring design, which itself is composed of three 7s arranged in such a way that they form a rough-edged twirl. This pattern is also seen in at least one of the colorways of the Li-Ning Way of Wade 7.
Length and Width. Those who have worn the shoe report that the Li-Ning Wade All City 7 is on the larger side, and it’s particularly roomy in the toe area. Because of this, it’s going to be helpful if new buyers find ways to try this shoe on before they buy it.
Lockdown. The shoe has a standard lacing system that is further reinforced by a criss-cross velcro strap that runs from forefoot and is fastened on the rear lateral side. To help keep the foot in place, the shoe has a molded heel that is further reinforced by a synthetic panel placed on the rear medial side of the shoe.
The seventh installment of the Wade All City has an upper that is made of synthetic textile, making it breathable and a bit stretchy. It has fuse overlays on high-wear areas to keep the shoe together for long.
Because of the strap that criss-crosses along the length of the shoe, the Li-Ning Wade All City 7 is often compared to the LeBron Soldier 12 that happens to sport the same feature. The Wade AC 7 holds its own through the unique elements that it has on the outsole. Integrated with the traction pattern are boxes that feature Dwyane Wade’s name and some important dates in his life and career.
