LI-NING x ERIK ELLINGTON
PLEASE NOTE: THIS ITEM IS FINAL SALE. ALL sales are final on discounted items. Sale items are NOT eligible for return or exchanges. Please select your size and style carefully.
Skateboarding icon Erik Ellington and sportswear pioneer Li-Ning release their latest colorway of the Ellington signature model entitled “Sunrise”. The new colorway follows last years announced partnership and stays true to Erik’s origins by delivering a high-performance skate shoe.
The Sunrise underlines the contemporary aesthetic of Ellington’s signature silhouette which redefines the classic skateboarding shoe with modern materials and technology to improve the function, comfort, and product performance. Inspired by the sunrise, the black upper harmonizes smoothly with the gradient pink-purple midsole which expresses the morning light while the other details echo the overall theme-story. Additionally, the shoelaces come with a 3M reflective yarn.
By offering maximum comfort and minimal weight, Li-Ning’s engineered “BOOM” sole technology becomes the key feature of this latest colorway. The use of translucent materials enhances the sense of technology and hierarchy while giving you full control while skateboarding.
ABOUT THE LI-NING BRAND
Established in 1990, Li-Ning is the Chinese leader in athletic apparel and footwear, rooted in the vision of its founder and namesake, champion gymnast and Olympic athlete, Mr. Li Ning. With 106 gold medals and the nickname “The Prince of Gymnastics,” Mr. Li founded the company with the simple goal of providing Chinese athletes with a national brand to wear on the world stage of the Olympics—historically one of the West’s rare portals and views into authentic Chinese culture. This modest intention has—30 years later—led to the rise of a global sport pioneer.
In 2017—with an eye on the international, fashion landscape—the brand launched a namesake, elevated runway collection—first available only in China—that quickly gained international interest and has since been shown on the runways of New York and Paris. In any given Li-Ning runway collection, western sportswear silhouettes are contrasted with traditional details. Classic shapes are articulated in innovative fabrics, simultaneously imbuing each piece with both Chinese heritage and global appeal. This futuristic and authentic vision of China—informed by the culture of the street—is made possible by the 30-year, storied expertise of the Li-Ning brand and its founder, Mr. Li Ning. On the exciting launch and introduction of the brand’s runway collection, Mr. Li offered, “After three decades, we are excited to leverage our intrinsic understanding of the athlete’s body and fuse it with an aesthetic, an attitude, and a sense of style that is deeply and uniquely Chinese yet intended for all. We wish to define the space where sport and imagination intersect, with a vivid approach and quality that is unparalleled.”
