Kawhi Leonard accomplished almost every feat possible for an NBA player. The majority of these rewards and recognition occurred in the New Balance OMN1S sneakers. The OMN1S was shockingly unveiled in high-top form the day of the 2019 NBA All-Star Game.
This was New Balance’s first basketball sneaker in decades, re-entering the hoops market after signing Leonard away from the Jordan Brand. 17 months later and New Balance is ready to drop the low-top version. This is the company’s first low-top basketball shoe ever.
The New Balance OMN1S Low retains the same FuelCell, FitWeave and UltraHeel from the high-top. The upper gets chopped down to reduce weight.
This unveiling is perfect timing, as the NBA is set to resume on July 30 after months of inactivity from the COVID-19 global pandemic. The “Berry Lime” colorway is set to drop that same day on NewBalance.com.
Oklahoma City Thunder Guard Darius Bazley will be rocking this low-top for the remainder of the season, with Kawhi Leonard rocking his The KAWHI sneaker.
