To celebrate the Toronto Raptors’ historic NBA Finals victory, New Balance is dropping two special edition versions of its 997 and 990v5 sneakers. Both feature colorways inspired by Canada’s first-ever NBA champions.
The 990v5 features a predominantly purple and black makeup with reflective silver detailing on the New Balance logo and toe box, with red laces. The 997 features black and purple on the upper with hits of red and gray.
New Balance famously signed Raptors star Kawhi Leonard after the player’s contract with Jordan Brand expired. Leonard is a two-time NBA champion and NBA Finals MVP and the new face of New Balance’s basketball division.
Both styles are available for preorder at New Balance starting today at 11 a.m. EDT. They are only available in Canada and the US. Check out both styles above and hit the button below to preorder.
