After years of wearing Reebok sneakers, Baron Davis is getting his own sneaker with Li-Ning. For those of you who are unfamiliar, Li-Ning is China based sneaker company that has been trying to make in roads into the NBA for a couple of years now. Baron Davis is the most high profile and the first NBA player to receive his own signature sneaker with the brand.
The Li-Ning BD1 features a low a breathable perforated leather upper sitting on a low profile midsole/outsole that emphasizes proper traction. The best of the sneaker is easily the Baron Davis branding which includes a “BD” on the heel, “Baron” on the tongue tab, and the logo on the tongue which features Baron’s face including his now trademark beard and headband.
No word on a stateside release but look for Boom to wear the Li-Ning BD1 this year on the court. Read on for more pics.
