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.
This is the first limited edition drop you can expect before the OMN1S releases this fall 🔐
