Ballertainment D Wade tells Esquire Mag about his fashion aesthetic and his shoe line Dwyane Wade is no stranger to fashion or business. Over the years he’s developed a taste for fine clothes, and has learned the importance of investing in quality wardrobe pieces. Wade has also developed a knack for marketing himself — having previously written a book, and teamed up with brands like T-Mobile, Gatorade, Hublot, and Brand Jordan. Currently, the father of two is a pitch man for Dove Men+Care, and from what he tells Esquire Magazine, he is very hands on with his Way of Wade shoe line by Chinese company, Li-Ning. On whether or not he and his Miami Heat teammates Chris Bosh and LeBron James compete with one another in the game of fashion…. Not really, man. I think we all have our own style, you know? We don’t really dress alike; we do things differently. If someone wears something you like, you make comments on it. And if someone wears something we don’t like, we make comments on it, too. That’s just what guys do, what teammates do. Besides that, we don’t really compete in that space. On how fatherhood has changed the way he dresses… Not really. But I’m always telling my kids to be themselves and let their personalities show in other ways than with their mouths. [Laughs.] And with the way I dress, I think my personality shows, so I don’t always have to talk. Someone can see what I’m wearing, see what socks I’m wearing, and see what my vibe is, what kind of person I am. When asked about what advice he would give about style, Wade said… I think the biggest thing I’ve learned is to not really worry what people will say or think about what you wear. You have to wear what feels good on you, what you feel comfortable in. And I’ve just learned to not really care. Obviously, from time to time, people are going to say good things about you and they’re going to say bad things about you, but that’s with anything in life and that’s with anything you wear. With fashion, man — fashion’s about taking chances, it’s about taking risks, and just doing it the way you feel comfortable doing it. If you do that, people will respect it more.
