To celebrate Wade’s amazing 2008-2009 season, Converse has reissued and re-released the WADE 1 in limited amounts to Champs Sports nationwide. The original release of the shoe was during Dwayne Wade’s winning 2005-06 NBA season where he took the Miami Heat to their first ever championship win. This marked the first ever signature shoe for Wade. Here’s a description of the shoe courtesy of NiceKicks…
“…The WADE 1 features â€œ.08â€ displayed on the inner heel to reflect two game-winning shots in his first two NBA season seasons. His number â€œ3â€ is shown on the shoelace eyelets and his name appears on the back and top of the shoe. Functionally, the shoe enables Wade to play at the top of his game with a Foot Strike Management System, internal sock liner and heel stabilizers…” – NiceKicks
The WADE 1 was released on Friday, April 10, exclusively at Champs Sports for $90. You can definitely try and see if your local Champs still has any left in stock. Go Heat!!!
