UPDATE: Li-Ning & Erik Ellington Announce Partnership

The first clip of Erik Ellington skating Li-Ning shoes dates back to 2019. So his partnership with the Chinese sportswear giant should come as no surprise. Both parties announced Li-Ning’s foray into skateboarding last night. And it appears that Ellington has a team in the works, which includes Zach Allen. The shoes are looking pretty good in the on-foot photo. This could definitely fill the void left by Supra’s exit.

UPDATE 07.23.21: Li-Ning dropped the full edit of Ellington and crew’s inaugural trip to New York to introduce its skate program. We’ve embedded it up top. This clearly has potential.
