Three-time NBA Champion Dwyane Wade announced last week a special collaboration with rapper, entrepreneur, and superstar Rick Ross on a two-shoe collection that celebrates and commemorates each of their individual success and collective impact on the city of Miami. Wade and Ross lent their creative inspiration to design new colorways of the WOW7 performance shoe and the lifestyle focused Essence Ace II silhouette.

The Ross and Wade collaborative colorway of the Way Of Wade 7 (also known as WOW7) is a black, purple and gold reimagining of Wade’s seventh signature shoe.

The performance basketball sneaker, known for its dynamic support, comfort, and breathability — features a removable/replaceable crown that wraps along the midsole and heel — a nod to the ‘Biggest Boss’ and the artwork of Ross’ critically acclaimed album, “Rather You Than Me.”

The Essence Ace II is a wildly popular lifestyle sneaker that’s designed for those who press for performance off the court as well. This limited-edition version has a tonal red upper utilizing premium materials, such as reptile suede, tumbled leather and reflective hits donning gold “Rick Ross” tags on each toe box, and co-branded logos throughout.

The collaboration will be available on Oct. 19. Both models are produced for a limited run — with the WOW7s individually numbered out of 500. The WOW7 is priced at $300 with the Ace II priced at $200. Both shoes will be released online at www.wayofwade.com and locally in Miami at The Edition Boutique in Miami, FL.
