Chinese sportswear company Li-Ning showcases its new Autumn/Winter ‘22 collection featuring apparel and footwear. Li-Ning honors its roots as it pays respect to China’s Zhuang culture, the country’s largest minority group that lives in the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region.  

For footwear offerings, Li-Ning presents the Li-Ning Titian HALO and Li-Ning Furious Rider Ace 1.5. Both silhouettes embody this season’s fusion of the outdoors and urban areas in line with Zhuang culture. While the Li-Ning Cosmo Eternal, Li-Ning Puff, and Li-Ning Yunyou Fluffy deliver everyday comfort that balances functionality and futurism.

The Li-Ning Titian HALO features an upper that is inspired by traditional Tang dynasty pottery which is sharply contrasted with an outsole design that borrows from snowboarding, as exemplified by an up-turned-toe cap that mimics a wind-shattering effect.

For a more classic style, the Li-Ning Furious Rider ACE 1.5 has an upper that is constructed using a mix of leather and mesh and unique TPU overlays to bring a refreshed look to the silhouette.

The collection also offers Li-Ning’s premier skateboarding silhouettes, the Li-Ning Wave Golden and Li-Ning Ellington. Both sneakers are specifically engineered for the sport by featuring distinct characteristics and methods of construction to aid the wearer during skating. The Li-Ning Ellington is Erik Ellington’s pro-model and is the lightest footwear style in the history of Li-Ning.

The apparel options keeps things comfy with all-over prints and cultural Zhuang symbols across cropped sportswear-inspired jackets, insulated down jackets, knitted sets, and more. Li-Ning continues to refine its pattern cutting, choice of fabric, and functional trims in pursuit of perfection.

The Li-Ning Autumn/Winter 2022 Collection is available now. To purchase, visit Li-Ning.com and select retailers. Take a look at the collection below and follow @NiceDrops on Instagram.
