Best Foot Forward: Li Ning BB Sonic 4 TD

I saw this budget model from Li Ning in store and I am really intrigued by it. It has been our goal here at analykix to share information that would help you choose your next basketball kicks. Of course most of the people here in the Philippines have limited budget in terms of basketball kicks so I am sure a lot of you are looking for shoes suited to your playing style without burning a hole in your pocket. So for today's Best Foot Forward segment, I present you the Li Ning BB Sonic 4 TD. For some of you who have no idea about the shoe, here is what I found at the Li Ning Store:

1.Padded tongue pattern design, fashion and beautiful
2.Breathe upper, more lightweight
3.Rubber outsole, wear non- slip, long life
4.Classic and stylish

For my first impression, the shoe feels very light. While synthetic upper was mainly used here, some of you might consider this being outdated already as most of the shoes that you see in stores now are being made up of textile (knit or woven) uppers. However, I still think that synthetic or fuse materials are still relevant up to now especially when done right and I have a hunch that this could be the case in this model. Another thing that made me cop this shoe is because the cushion would give some adequate if not decent impact protection. It feels soft and I am really intrigued on how it will play out once I use them for balling. I got them at Olympic World Trinoma for a cheap price (less than Php 3,500 I think) and I will be playing in them the coming weeks so stay tuned for my performance review here at For the meantime, here are more detailed images.
