Debuting at the 2020 All-Star Game, Kawhi Leonard and New Balance made a splash with the Los Angeles Clippers star’s first signature shoe.
the New Balance KAWHI 1 was unveiled one year after Leonard debuted his previous sneaker, the New Balance OMN1S during the 2019 All-Star Game. Leonard won his second championship in that sneaker. To continue his winning ways, Leonard won All-Star MVP in the KAWHI 1.
Mesh and synthetic leathers are used on the upper, including the wavelength design on the collar.
A TPU heel cup features a 3D New Balance logo that is debossed.
This debut colorway features color pop on the side panels and meteorology-inspired outsole.
While no details have been shared about the cushioning, the OMN1S did utilize FuelCell foam. This provided the best energy return offered in New Balance performance footwear.
The KAWHI launches globally in Fall 2020 and will release in limited quantities this Spring.
