With those clues given, see which sneaker takes each position in our weekly feature below. What was your personal good, bad and ugly this week?
The Good – Li-Ning New Basketball Model
It’s been a long time since there was any competition in the performance basketball market. Nike has been pushing the envelope with the success of their big name signature models and the Hyper-line with few other brand making any noise. Chinese brand Li-Ning is turning into a legitimate contender to challenge the Swoosh for hardwood supremacy. Their latest model uses EVA foam injection for a forward thinking take on basketball footwear. We’re not giving the up and coming brand the crown anytime soon but we do feel models like this will bring the best out of all brands in the market.
