New Balance Kawhi: For positionless play

The basketball game has become more and more flexible. To be effective on the court, players have to deliver way beyond what their positions demand. The New Balance Kawhi affords its wearer such kind of flexibility through the following:

  • Data-driven traction. The outsole of the NB Kawhi is beyond ordinary. Its grooves are based on data collected from actual players to provide the right amount of traction where they need it.
  • Stability. New Balance ensures stable sprints by adding a full-length performance plate in the midsole of these low-top basketball shoes.
  • Highly energized steps. Due to the FuelCell foam in the midsole, the New Balance Kawhi is able to efficiently propel its wearer as they drive to the basket. 

NB Kawhi on the court and beyond

The New Balance Kawhi is engineered to deliver comfort for not only on-court games but also leisurely walks around the park or even all-day wear at work. Given that it comes out in several attractive colorways, this pair of New Balance basketball shoes is surely one that its wearer can really be proud of.
