Dwyane Wade Debuts Blood-Splattered Sneakers Called "The Dexter"

What's a Miami sneaker fiend to do now that LeBron James is back in Cleveland? Do you still rock your Nike LeBron XIs? Or do you consider Dwyane Wade's line with Chinese apparel company Li-Ning?

Because Wade has an eye-catching new design out aimed directly at anyone fascinated with Miami pop culture. Yep, his new kicks appear to be blood splattered, and they're called the "Dexter." As in that certain blood-splatter analyst by day and serial killer by night who stalked a fictional Miami on Showtime for eight seasons.

Granted, the "blood splatter" on these kicks looks more like paint splatter on a red composition book than actual blood, but there's no denying its inspiration.

No word on when the shoes will be available, but until then you can get your hands on the red leopard-print version.

This isn't the first time a Heat star has turned to a Miami-set TV show for sneaker inspiration. LeBron has released a few shoes in a color style dubbed "Miami Vice." They feature the teal and pink identified with the series.

Of course, we have a few more ideas for Wade, Bosh, and any future Heat superstars.

  • The Scarface: Pure white with a scar on the tongue.
  • The Burn Notice: Flames!
  • The CSI Miami: Orthopedic versions for old people.
  • The Golden Girls: All gold, obviously.
