Wade and Butler have been connected for quite some time, but their relationship has taken on a new form ever since Butler joined the Heat.
Wade played a meaningful role in bringing Butler to Miami, and the star forward has been as good as advertised.
In his first season with the team, Butler led the Heat to an improbable berth in the NBA Finals.
Though they came up short against a high-powered Los Angeles Lakers team, it’s clear that the Heat are once again part of the NBA’s elite.
Now, Wade and Butler don’t only share a love for the city of Miami, they also share an affinity for the same sneaker brand.
There’s no telling what this duo’s next partnership will be.
