New Balance x KAWHI Leonard

New Balance is a very old company, dating back to 1906 when it was founded by William J. Riley. They first sold orthopedic products but transitioned to performance wear by the 1950s.

After Paul Kidd took over, demand rose sky-high with athletes now asking for tailored shoes. In 1961, the New Balance “Trackster” released which was their first performance running shoe.

It had an excellent rippled sole for traction and came in different widths to fit various feet. 1976, New Balance came into the international spotlight by winning the Runner’s World Magazine Award.

After many collaborations and hiring signature athletes, New Balance seems to be doubling-down their investment in KAWHI Leonard. Quite a few sneakers have already released while there are a lot more still to come.

After leaving Nike over a dispute over his “Klaw” branding, Leonard signed with New Balance in 2018 which earns him an estimated $5.5 Million according to Forbes.

The sneakers have done relatively well sales-wise, however, resale for the most part isn’t spectacular. To estimate resale for the New Balance KAWHI Snowman let’s head over to StockX.

New Balance KAWHI Four Bounces

New Balance KAWHI Four Bounces

Retail Price: $160

Peak Resell: $525

Release Date: 08/20/2020

Colorway: Black/Blue-Gold

These sneakers celebrate Kawhi Leonard’s dominant 2019 run when he also secured his second championship in the NBA.

The “Four Bounces” sneakers feature a blue upper with a black overlay that forms a pattern across the side panels. A black collar, blue heel piece, and golden hits above the mudguards further embellish the design. A white midsole and grey outsole completes the look.

The average selling price on StockX is $240 which is a decent average gross profit of $80 per pair. At peak resale, they’ve been sold for gross profits as high as $365. I believe the New Balance KAWHI Snowman will likely have a similar resale value.

This Christmas-themed New Balance sneaker comes dressed in an ice-y overlay that mimics a block of cold carved ice. The toe region and heel both present these ice-y reinforcements while the side panels feature a similar New Balance KAWHI pattern.

The white tongue features claw and basketball graphics while the heel tabs feature signatures of the star himself. A metallic silver FuelCell midsole and a white outsole complete the look.

Resale Value

Although many KAWHI x New Balance sneakers aren’t super profitable, I believe these just might be similar to the previous colorways. To help you cop this sneaker and many more, join our exclusive Winner’s Circle for valuable insider knowledge.

Using my estimated resell value of $240, expect gross profits of around $80. By selling on websites such as eBay that provide service fee waivers, pure profits may even be higher.

Where to Buy

You can buy these sneakers at select retailers and New Balance at 10 am EDT on December 11th. The retail price is set at $160.

You can also buy them today at reseller websites such as StockX.
