New Balance Reveals Its New Basketball Shoe for 2021 — Here’s What You Can Expect

New Balance started its push back into basketball in November 2018 when it signed NBA star Kawhi Leonard, and since has delivered several acclaimed performance and retro hoops shoes. Next year, the athletic brand will add a new court-ready look to its product offering.

The Boston-based brand revealed on Twitter today the New Balance Two Wxy, a shoe it described as a look for the positionless player. The shoe was shown in two colorways — one using blue and gold hues and the other in black, pink, orange and blue — and although an exact release date wasn’t given, the brand stated it will launch in 2021. (The price point was also not provided.)

Introducing the TWO WXY. Today’s game is positionless. On court this season. Launching in 2021. @newbalance #WeGotNow,” the brand captioned the Twitter post.

Although this model isn’t available yet, New Balance has plenty of performance basketball sneakers to shop now. For instance, Leonard’s first-ever signature shoe — dubbed the New Balance Kawhi — which retails for $160. Also, the first shoe the two-time NBA champion laced up after signing with the brand, the New Balance OMN1S, is available now in mid and low, both retailing for $140.
