New Balance dropped the first run of NBA star Kawhi Leonard’s shoes last night, and within minutes, they were gone. But that doesn’t mean you can’t still get a pair.
The athletic brand delivered the “2-Way” OMN1S pack at 7 p.m. ET, an hour before Leonard would lead his Toronto Raptors to a 125-89 win over the Philadelphia 76ers. The two-shoe lineup consisted of a black and blue take on the baller’s court-ready OMN1S sneaker and a complementary pair of the lifestyle-focused 997 Sport. Each look retailed for $140.
Now the sneakers will cost you a lot more money.
