At a recent season preview, the Chinese sportswear company unveiled an upcoming silhouette that looks strikingly similar to adidas‘s Crazy BYW X. The shoe features the same high-cut sock collar, mesh base, zig-zag lacing system and bulbous split sole unit. Despite no formal release notes, it is assumed the shoe is to be released as the Li-Ning Unstoppable, thanks to the branded stripe found on the tongue of the shoe. With five colorways already planned, it will be interesting to see how adidas responds to Li-Ning’s upcoming release.
No word from the German sportswear label yet, but stay tuned as the story develops.
