With the NBA season set to resume on July 30, New Balance has presented its newest hoops silhouette: the OMN1S Low. Arriving in a “Berry Lime” colorway alongside similar-toned takes on the 997S and 850, the vibrant colors pay homage to NB Hoops team member and Oklahoma City Thunder forward Darius Bazley‘s bright personal style.
The OMN1S debuted in February 2019 and was originally made for superstar Los Angeles Clippers forward Kawhi Leonard, then of the Toronto Raptors. However, this marks its first ever low-top iteration. A compact silhouette, the OMN1S Low offers the same FuelCell, FitWeave and UltraHeel tech as its predecessor but chops the collar down to save weight and increase flexibility.
Off-court options from the “Berry Lime” pack are strong as well. The 997S is done up in white with pops of lime and purple while the 850 uses white and neon green to accent its purple and black base — making for a duo of looks that seem straight out of a ’90s footwear catalog.
New Balance’s “Berry Lime” pack is set to drop on the New Balance webstore come July 30 to commemorate the NBA season’s renewal. Prices for the three styles have yet to be announced.
