What would the playoffs be without some fresh limited edition gear to go along with them? Well, still probably pretty cool, but the new gear does add a little something. Today we bring you news of our favorite baller D.Wade's new playoff kicks: the "limited playoff edition" WADE 2.0 by Converse. Converse is re-launching their "ALL IN" campaign, and here's what they're saying about these particular shoes:
The WADE 2.0 signature shoe reflects the duality of Wade’s game with a “Rose and Thorn” design inspiration – his fierceness on the court meets the beauty of his game. Design elements relating to Wade include a perforated pattern on the medial side of the shoe that has an embossed “Z” for his son, Zaire. The upper and outsole both have a repeating “W” pattern inspired by Wade and the Thorn. Finally, there is a leather patch behind the tongue featuring Dwyane Wade’s signature.
Sounds good to me. These look decidedly better than the candy cane edition that they rolled out for Christmas, but then again I'm not a big fan of the color red, so what do I know. These won't be available in stores until April 25, which by then might have the Heat halfway to the second round. At least that's what Shaq thinks.
