KNOW YOUR TECH breaks down the scientific technology used in your favorite sneakers and activewear. Let’s demystify your next purchase: today’s technology is Li-Ning Bounse cushioning. Used in many of the brand’s running, tennis and basketball sneakers, Li-Ning Bounse is especially notable for its inclusion in Dwyane Wade’s signature line. Although DWade’s play style is entering a tamer, less aggressive phase as he ages, he’s still one of the league’s top offensive threats. Known more for his slashing, explosive cuts than his precision shooting, Dwyane Wade benefits from the responsive cushioning provided by Li-Ning Bounse.
What is it? Li-Ning Bounse is a foam cushioning developed by the brand to deliver high-rebound responsiveness. Often used in unison with shock-absorbing Li-Ning CushioN, Bounse cushioning is used in a number of the brand’s models ranging from tennis to basketball.
How does it work? While Li-Ning CushioN protects player during high impact, Li-Ning Bounse lives up to its name with highly responsive and resilient cushioning. On court, reviewers have compared it to the functionality of Nike Lunarlon and Under Armour Micro G.
Bottom line: Li-Ning has been making waves with their unique designs that take inspiration from current basketball technologies. Li-Ning Bounse cushioning helps Dwyane Wade maintain quickness and agility on the court as he enters his 10th season.
