Editor’s Notes: As the 2019-2020 NBA regular season tips off today, New Balance is prepping the widespread release of Kawhi Leonard‘s OMN1S signature sneaker. Subsequently, the brand shares a new video featuring Leonard, titled “Reign Over LA,” as the 2019 Finals MVP returns home to declare Los Angeles is his city.
“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,” says said Patrick Cassidy, New Balance Global Director of Consumer Marketing. “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.”
Leonard’s New Balance OMN1S is designed to deliver speed and responsiveness. Speed and bounce are achieved thanks to the sneaker’s full-length FuelCell midsole. The OMN1S also features a 3D Ultra Heel construction and infused FitWeave upper, coming together to offer a locked-in fit.
You can pick up a pair of the first “Reign Gold” OMN1S colorway on October 23 through newbalance.com/basketball and select retailers globally. Six additional colorways of Kawhi Leonard’s New Balance signature sneaker are scheduled to release throughout the remainder of 2019. Additionally, you can catch Leonard in action tonight as the new-look Clippers take on in-town rival, the Los Angeles Lakers.
