In celebration of the iconic buzzer-beater shot Kawhi Leonard made to beat the Philadelphia 76ers in the 2019 NBA Playoffs, New Balance has revealed the NBA stars first signature shoe, the Kawhi “4 Bounces” colorway.
Designed in consultation with two-time NBA Champion and NBA Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard, the Kawhi is built around Kawhi’s power and versatility. The 4 Bounces colorway features Kawhi specific design elements to further make the shoe his own. From notes to his favorite car to his hometown city, Moreno Valley, CA, the Kawhi includes several personal details to give a deeper look at the NBA MVP and make his first signature shoe with New Balance completely his own.
The Kawhi signature is built for positionless players who need stability while they are posted up on the wing, and quickness so they can drive to the basket. Incorporating many of New Balance’s unique technology features, including a brand new full-length nylon plate acting as a leaf spring and a Kinetic Stitch upper for tuned lock down and support, the Kawhi signature includes everything from the previous OMN1S 2019 drop in an updated more intimate style.
