With the 2019-20 NBA season scheduled to return on October 22, New Balance is readying the global release of Kawhi Leonard‘s OMN1S signature sneaker.

Unlike the bold LA Clippers-inspired model that released earlier this summer, the OMN1S gets a demure “Reign” makeover featuring a white woven upper and translucent outsole. A contrasting regal gold lace guard, along with OMN1S and New Balance branding finish off the over-all look of the model.

In terms of specs, the OMN1S boasts a full-length FuelCell midsole, allowing for explosive movement needed in the game, along with a 3D Ultra Heel construction and FitWeave upper.

The OMN1S basketball shoe made its on-court debut earlier this year at the 2019 NBA All-Star Game in Charlotte, N.C and will now see a widespread release on October 23. Interested fans can head over to newbalance.com/basketball, global New Balance flagships, select Shoe Palace and Foot Locker stores in Los Angeles to purchase a pair for $140 USD. The “Reign” colorway will be the first of seven release over the rest of 2019.

To coincide with the drop New Balance and Shoe Palace will be holding a pop-up in Los Angeles titled “Kawhi’s Fun House.” The fun house will be open to the public from Friday, October 18 until Sunday, October 20. Over the three days, six player exclusive OMN1S colorways will drop in limited quantities, including “Best Kept Secret,” “Trust Leonard,” “Black Ice,” “Do Not Disturb,” “Distinct Beast,” along with a special Los Angeles edition. Head over to kawhisfunhouse.com for more details.

Leonard will make his Clippers debut when the west coast team takes on the Lakers on October 23.
