It's finally no longer a rumour, and there is actually a shoe that we can look at. Chinese brand Li Ning have revealed Dwayne Wades first signature shoe as part of their new entourage of NBA players.
Wade's contract with the Jordan Brand ended last month, and he was quick to make the move over to Li Ning. Rumours of the move had flown around for a while, with official confirmation only coming in recent days.
These are the first shoes to come out under Wade's name. Currently dubbed the X Wade, these black and white mid-cut sneakers lack the technological focus that Wade had under Jordan Brand, but what they lack in technology, they make up for in style.
The shoe has a patent leather upper, with a tonal elevated branding along the wide. The midsole has a really nice speckled effect that sits well alongside the multi-coloured laces.
D Wade will also be rocking a new brand logo, which can be glimpsed on the inside of the tongue on these new Wade kicks.
While these pictures are set to stir up some hype, a final release date from Li Ning has yet to be announced.
