As part of its Art of a Champion collection, which celebrates historic moments in the NBA Playoffs, Nike is honoring Kawhi Leonard with the Air Jordan 1 ‘Pass the Torch’.
On June 10, 2014, Kawhi Leonard came out of nowhere and dropped 29 points against the Heat’s powerful star-studded team. Leonard led that veteran Spurs to victory in Game 3 and he helped propel the Spurs to a 4-1 win that sent the Heat packing. His performance in that series earned him Finals MVP for his stunning performance, and earned him a place in Nike’s Art of a Champion collection.
The Air Jordan 1 ‘Pass the Torch’ features Kawhi Leonard’s K-hand logo under the forefoot and at the insoles. The shoe flaunts metallic silver panels over a white tumbled leather upper.
The Kawhi Leonard Air Jordan 1 ‘Pass the Torch’ will release on April 28 for $145 via Nike SNKRS and select Nike retailers.
