Chinese sports athletic goods brand Li-Ning was founded in 1989 by former olympic athlete Li-Ning himself.
Li-Ning specialise in sporting footwear in particular basketball and have endorsed a host of former all-star athletes such as Shaquille O’Neal, Baron Davies and Dwayne Wade respectively. Currently they sponsor Portland Trail Blazers shooting guard CJ McCollum.
Aside from athletic footwear and apparel, Li-Ning have ventured into lifestyle fashion too and their latest silhouette, the ‘Arc Ace’ have been brought to attention.
For Autumn/Winter 2019, the Chinese sports pioneer Li-Ning translates the vast beauty and dynamism of China’s national parks and landscapes into a meditation on civilization and nature, positioning our place within today’s, fast-paced world as walkers, wanderers, and explorers. This season’s offering imagines and examines contemporary life as experienced within three worlds—the city, the country, and the journey between the two.
The Arc Ace model is crafted of nylon and TPU panels marked with script at the front and heel tabs. Branding hits around on the side of the toe box, tongue tabs and printed insoles. The standout element of the silhouette is the unconventional futuristic lattice-like midsole inspired by the twisting roots of trees found throughout China’s countryside.
Li-Ning Arc Ace is Now available in-store and online. Sizes range from UK6 – UK11, priced at £150.
