The party’s on in Toronto after the Raptors bested the hobbled Golden State Warriors to claim their first-ever NBA Championship last week, and newly-minted 6 hero Kawhi Leonard is set to continue the celebration with Raptors-themed takes on the New Balance 990v5 and New Balance 997. Each pair features a stark black mesh upper offset with rich purple suede overlays, and then adds Raps red in different fashions: the 990 v5 offers red laces, while the 997 ramps up the rouge a touch, using it on both the collar and forefoot. Grey suede accents then complete both looks. New Balance was offering pre-orders — and excitement around the shoes is so high that their site briefly crashed this morning — but they’re now both sold out, so stay tuned for info on a restock, grab a look below, and keep it locked for further updates on any and all Klaw-related footwear, including his impending New Balance OMN1S.
