New Balance to Drop Kawhi Leonard Designed Pack in Hyperstrike Form

Kawhi Leonard leaving Jordan Brand after it was reported his contract would not be renewed was one shock; but the emergence of New Balance in the basketball arena in 2018-19 was by far the bigger shock. And while the former 2014 NBA Finals Most Valuable Player chose to partner with the Massachusetts brand as the face of its basketball program; the overall approach has been slow and steady. With the OMN1S coming this fall and Kawhi playing out of his mind this postseason; it feels like the perfect time for New Balance to slide right in with a limited drop.

And that is what New Balance has planned at about an hour from now…7 pm ET Tuesday to be exact. With a quick release of the OMN1S and 997 designated the Sport Pack throughout the US, Canada and China.
