Designed with two-time NBA Champion and NBA Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard, the KAWHI II is built for a positionless style of play, and combines the best of New Balance’s performance technologies. This men’s basketball shoe 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 Fit Weave Lite, a very light, almost see-through mesh that has fibers woven into it for greater lockdown and support. To complete the signature feel, the outsole, midsole, and upper detailing are modeled around Kawhi’s massive hand clutching the shoe.
