Li-Ning ShadowWalker | Snail Sun

The Li-Ning ShadowWalker by designer, Snail Sun continues to push the brands unique aesthetic. Love or hate the brand, you know right away when someones wearing a pair of their sneakers. Brightly coloured, chunky sole units combined with those tall tongues and techy uppers are generally the DNA of Li-Ning Basketball sneakers.

I can really appreciate where they’ve come from, and if this shoe is an indication of the future, where they’re going. They’ve come a long way design wise since their first foray into the western athletic market. It’ll be interesting to see how they progress in the next couple seasons. For now though, you can check out some of the work that went into the creation of the ShadowWalker. From initial inspiration to sketches/renderings, all the way through to tech packs and of course, final beauty shots, you can see the full development, below.
