After delivering two multicolor makeovers for its paneled Moment sneakers, Chinese sportswear imprint LI-NING is back with yet another colorful take, this time opting to utilize its haphazardly-constructed Essence 2 silhouette as the base.

Featuring a deconstructed aesthetic, the Essence 2 high-top sneaker employs a heavily-paneled construction that utilizes a bricolage of materials from synthetic meshes and rubbers to real and faux leathers, and more. The imprint has opted for a mixture of vibrant colors from teal greens to crimson reds, with a variety of graphic prints employed on the lateral side as well as on the chunky rubber sole. Other details include a lace-up front, a sock-like collar, pull tabs, an iridescent heel counter, perforations on the various panels, and loose hanging threads that stay true to the shoe’s deconstructed style.

Take a detailed look at LI-NING’s Essence 2 in blue and red multicolor above. Pairs are currently available for $320 USD at Browns’ webstore.

For more footwear news, the Air Jordan 5 SE “Oregon” is rumored to release later this year.
