Looking to make its mark in the sneaker world, LI-NING recently developed its most innovative runner yet, the Arc Ace Sneaker.

Available in “Tiger’s Eye Khaki/Apricot Orange/Yellow” and “Ocean Blue/Sleet/Grey Blue” colorways, the unique sneaker is inspired by the twisting roots of trees found throughout China’s countryside. The upper of the shoe 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. But the most striking element on the Arc Ace Sneaker has to be its futuristic lattice-like, architectural constructed of compression-molded Phylon midsole paired with a grip-focused rubber outsole.

Priced at $190 USD, LI-NING’s Arc Ace Sneaker is available now in “Tiger’s Eye Khaki/Apricot Orange/Yellow” and “Ocean Blue/Sleet/Grey Blue” at LN-CC.

In case you missed it, 1017 ALYX 9SM put a technical twist on the classic Chelsea Boot.
