Jimmy Butler, who is starting his 14th season, is still among the League’s most versatile players. The main architect of the Miami Heat’s identity and culture, consistently playing his way into the discussion of the NBA’s best two-way players, chose to sign with Li-Ning rather than Jordan Brand in late 2020, following in the footsteps of his longtime friend and former teammate Dwyane Wade. Li-Ning is a Chinese-based company that has been offering The Flash’s Way of Wade collection for more than ten years.
Since joining the company a year and a half ago, Butler has developed The JB1, his first signature shape.
Butler’s predatory tendencies on the court model the silhouette. It was first spotted last Wednesday during the Miami Heat’s season opener against the Chicago Bulls. The triangular shape of teeth forms the forefoots’ cup sole. The “Tough” colorway, which is made of a sturdy fiber, is shown below. Its top is coated in a black and orange combination, and its full-length carbon fiber plate displays a bright gradient of yellow, purple, and orange. The midsole logo also follows suit. The shoe has a new tread and a Honeycomb Cellular LOC outsole that improves traction. It also features the brand’s patented BOOM cushioning technology. The overarching construction beneath the foot delivers a bright orange-clad sample that also fills the sock liner and dashed laces above completing the model’s design aspects.
