6. D.Wade announces his own shoe release
Dwyane Wade is moving on to create something stylish for himself . The NBA player revealed that he has stepped down as the face of Michael Jordan’s sneaker line.
"I did mutually part ways with the Jordan umbrella, with Jordan and Converse. I had great nine years but we have mutually parted ways and I’m moving on," he said in a statement. "We had a great three years. It’s just the time. We went our separate ways.
He added "I still feel honored to have represented my favorite player of all time and his brand, and the opportunity I was given. I’m not disappointed at all."
Meanwhile, D.Wade has linked up with Beijing apparel company Li-Ning to design his own line of shoes. In his own creative twist, the laces form a "W." Take a peek.
