Kawhi Leonard launches his latest signature shoe, the New Balance Kawhi III Alpha Predator, in Milwaukee tonight.
Kawhi’s latest shoe will be released on February 10th at NewBalance.com for $160. Interestingly, this shoe features a carbon fiber plate built into the FuelCell cushioning system, which NB says “provides a propulsive energy-return feel.” We’ve seen carbon fiber insoles (VKTRY) show performance benefits, and this new technology from New Balance builds those right into the shoe. Doesn’t it also look like a raptor’s foot? I’m just saying.
The aesthetic shows a Jordan 5 influence with the open mesh panel but with modern materials like a lightweight, seamless low shoe that connects directly to the tongue. Paint splattered midsoles and a hint of reptile make these shoes a great look on or off the court in my opinion.
According to NB, more colorway releases are planned that “tap into the spirit of Kawhi, like Recharged Chakra, Lunar New Year, Sacred Geometry and even some borrowed from New Balance’s partners and iconic colors.”
What is your opinion?
Might copy these for spring training. 13 days!!!
