Beardman logo with a Wu Tang and Chinese/American hip hop inspired design flavor? SICK. Love the story behind this!!

I have to say, this really impressed me. I had no idea there was that much detail and thought on the Li-Ning stuff. If this is indicative of future bball offerings, I will support. The viral video BD posted got me interested. Hearing about the design story and all the details for this shoe has me WOWed now. Do some more solid videos and keep putting in thought on shoes like this and you will be an industry player in the US for sure. Hats off Li Ning group.

I am really glad they focused on PERFORMANCE instead of just putting out whatever like other brands. The rubber wrap story sounds sweet and I’m anxious to test out a pair myself on court. Hopefully I can get my hands on a pair before next month!

Awesome interview. Really in-depth and interesting. It’s great to see how much thought they put into making the shoe specific for Baron and how much input Baron had.

Can’t wait to try these on the court.

Great job on the interview. Miller sounds like he’s doing some business over there. Logo is insane, like everyone else, but the details behind how the shoe came together really are pretty good and almost didn’t see that coming. I could see Li Ning start to take off here in the states with focused product like this. Not even some of the more established brands are hitting it on this level, so much respect due. And yes I need that Beardman shirt pronto!

@Dan The BD Doom is $99.99 retail for the five general release colorways seen above (official launch date Feb 15th). There will be some limited edition colorways dropping later on down the road at $149.99, but we’ll have more info on those closer to an official drop date.

@Doopyx Only for the limited pairs my man. Say, around 100 pairs or less…these will likely be seeded at select sneaker boutiques so they’ll be hard to get. Everything else is $99.99

Read it all. Great piece & loved the inspiration and ‘accidental’ use of the Beardman logo.

Ok John…Yeah..the product is really original…but..I don’t know why I think there is some Air Jordan 25 part of the shoe….lateral view with 2 mountains..see it closely…

@Doopyx Dude, you see those elements on like…every shoe ever? That’s just typical extra reinforcement for the heel counter and lateral outrigger areas. That’s why it’s on that same area on the AJ or countless other shoes. It’s not even a main design feature on these, so I think you’re making a giant reach on that one man.

Interesting brand, it sounds like Li Ning has it right on design side. They should be able to compete if they keep running like this with big thoughts on shoe and performance aspects. Lots of former Nike employees out there..

This was great information, really interesting to learn more about the people and forces behind this brand.

I’m going to be at the Li-Ning / Baron Davis product launch in Feb. Totally excited for it now.
