Designed with two-time NBA Champion and NBA Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard, the KAWHI v2 is built for a positionless style of play, and combines the best of New Balance’s performance technologies. The KAWHI v2 features a FuelCell midsole, providing ultimate energy return and support to stay explosive throughout the game. Our new full-length performance plate is designed specifically for Kawhi with cutting, jumping and stability in mind. The upper is engineered with Kinetic Stitch, a data-driven thread application that helps control movement where you need it the most. Kawhi-inspired design details like braid-inspired stitching, resume-repping tongue, and eyelets based on the tail lights from his favorite classic rides complete the signature feel.
