All eyes in the basketball world are focused on Southern California. The Los Angeles Clippers have built a superteam of misfit All-Stars in hopes of taking over Tinsel Town. Not only are the new-look Clippers ready to disrupt the NBA, but they have a firm grasp on the sneaker industry.

Currently, four Clippers players have their own signature sneaker lines. One of our favorites is Kawhi Leonard's signature New Balance line. Earlier this year, the New Balance KAWHI III enjoyed a limited run and is finally making its long-awaited return.

The New Balance KAWHI III will be released in the 'Optic white with black and cobalt' colorway on Thursday, November 8. It is the same colorway Leonard has worn on the court, and online shoppers can purchase the performance basketball shoes for $160 on the New Balance website.

The KAWHI III was designed to be a lightweight, modern, and aggressive hoop shoe for an elite athlete at the peak of his powers. The full-length, Energy Arc-equipped FuelCell midsole offers a propulsive energy return feeling, designed to react to the game’s split-second changes.

Meanwhile, the minimalist upper design features a lightweight knit construction, featuring a seamless half-bootie that connects directly to the tongue. The seamless method is also utilized at the heel, with a molded component that offers a more natural, responsive sense of support than standard stitching.

It is sure to be an exciting NBA season, and we are glad to see New Balance and Leonard are back with more sneaker releases. Follow Men's Journal Sneakers for all your footwear news.
