Li-Ning’s move into the US basketball footwear market continues with new colorways of the low-cut version of the BD Doom. If the Li-Ning Defend is the go to shoe for Baron Davis’ home games at the Staple Center then the BD Doom Low could be the go to shoe for before game shoot arounds or after game relaxing. The higher cut version of the Li-Ning BD Doom received a good review in our recent Performance Review, so with all the same tooling, the low-cut version is also an option for those looking for a lighter weight option.
Two colorways of the Li-Ning BD Doom Low are now available for pre-order, a white and silver combination as well as a black and silver makeup. A suede toebox surrounded by patent material give the BD Doom a premium feel while the Beardman logo on the tongue and 3M reflective dots add some style points as well.

With NBA camps opening up this week, it seemed appropriate to take a look at some of the new fan gear that is arriving at Eastbay. Baron Davis’ Li-Ning Footwear first arrive in early August, but just in time for the kickoff training camps, a collection of Baron Davis inspired T-Shirts from Li-Ning are now available. Featuring the Beardman logo and Baron’s hometown of Los Angeles as inspiration, the collection has a little something for every taste, including a couple inspired by the Baron Davis vinyl toy that helped introduce the company to the U.S. market.

Li-Ning launched into the USA basketball market last year small scale and this summer has stepped up even more. With the Los Angeles Clippers’ Baron Davis as their front man and his signature shoes the BD Doom launching in a number of colorways, they’ve more than made a mark on the competitive basketball sneaker culture here in the United States.
The first look at the low top version that will be available later this fall shows us the silver and red combination. With the popularity of the high-top BD Doom, the low top version which will also be available in white, white and royal, and black, should be welcomed to those looking for a lighter weight and low cut hoop shoe.
