Kawhi Leonard has released his latest New Balance sneakers, and they have a special relationship with the LA Clippers’ latest urban edition yarns. Along with maritime signal flags on the tongue, which have been featured on multiple Clippers jerseys, Kawhi’s new kicks also sport a light blue and orange color that matches the current City Edition team uniforms.
As noted in this Tweet from New Balance Basketball, Kawhi’s new shoes will be available for purchase on May 13. The superstar striker hasn’t been able to showcase any of his new kicks on the pitch this season as he missed the whole year with ACL surgery, but Kawhi has now built up a pretty sizable shoe range with New Balance that he can present. next season.
The Clippers are understandably thrilled to put Kawhi back on the floor with what they think is the perfect supporting cast around him and Paul George. The team has already re-signed Robert Covington and will likely continue to make additional moves this summer. By reinserting healthy Kawhi Leonard and Paul George into a core group of players who proved their worth in expanded roles last season, the Clippers expect to once again step up into the championship hunt.
