Leonard’s New Balance OMN1S is manufactured to deliver speed and responsiveness. Those two features are accomplished thanks to the shoes full-length FuelCell midsole, which the company says also provides extreme comfort. The two-time NBA champion’s sneakers also pay homage to his hometown Los Angeles, as evidenced by a new video featuring Leonard titled “Reign Over LA.”
Patrick Cassidy, New Balance Global Director of Consumer Marketing said of the collaboration:
“Kawhi’s independent spirit has taken him on a journey where he clearly wanted to go home. He first became the face of New Balance Basketball, won a championship in Toronto and now found his way back to Los Angeles. Reign Over LA celebrates an athlete who carved their own their path to individual success. New Balance Basketball is a co-authored story with athletes like Kawhi Leonard and Darius Bazley – supporting athletes who are setting trends, not following them.”
Other features of the OMN1S include a 3D Ultra Heel construction and infused FitWeave upper, which promise a locked-in fit as you channel your inner Kawhi on the court.
