The New Balance Kawhi 4 Bounces, Kawhi Leonard’s first signature sneaker, released just in time for the pandemic delayed start of the 2020 NBA Playoffs. The first colorway, a blue, black, and gold makeup called 4 Bounces, was designed by Kawhi and his team.
It’s based off the similar New Balance OMN1S colorway that Kawhi wore against the Philadelphia 76ers in game seven of the 2019 Eastern Conference Semifinals. In that game, Kawhi made (with the help of 4 bounces) the game and series winning shot that helped propel the Toronto Raptors to their first NBA championship.
