Chinese sportswear brand Li-Ning made their first foray into the world of runway shows in February as they presented their Autumn/Winter 2019 collection in Industria in New York City. You already know the brand for their insertion into the basketball market, with marquee names such as Dwyane Wade and CJ McCollum representing them on a nightly basis, but their new direction touches on three key themes – urban, nature, and travel. The footwear spotted on the runway reflect that path, with runners like the Furious Rider Ace and the Aurora 2019 ushering in that attractive chunky outsole unit typically seen in trail shoes, while the Arc Ace boasts a porous construction with anatomical lines. See what the Chinese brand debuted below and stay tuned for their arrival later this year.
