Designed with two-time NBA Champion and NBA Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard, the KAWHI from New Balance is built for positionless play, and worn on gameday by the maestro himself. It features Kawhi edits like braid-inspired stitching, resume-repping tongue, and eyelets based on his classic ride. This signature shoe can be used on and off court, packing in performance tech like the FuelCell midsole, providing ultimate energy return and support to stay explosive throughout the game. Our new full-length performance plate (an NB first) is designed specifically for Kawhi with cutting, jumping and stability in mind. The upper is engineered with Kinetic Stitch, a data-driven thread application that helps control movement where you need it the most. It’s durable enough to hold up to your independent style of play, and smooth enough to wear home. Play the game your way in the KAWHI.
