Kawhi Leonard’s signing with Jordan Brand did not leave anyone surprised. He is the future of the NBA. A photo of his signature shoe was released and they look amazing.

Leonard’s nickname ‘The Claw’ has taken San Antonians by storm. The future of the San Antonio Spurs is very bright with Leonard at the helm. What he brings on the court is a lot of determination and work ethic that many only wish to possess. All of his hard work is not going unnoticed, as Michael Jordan himself recruited Leonard to join Team Jordan and the brand itself.

Leonard, one of several notable NBA players signed to Jordan Brand, debuted the line’s newest shoe, the Air Jordan XXX, during the Spurs’ second-round matchup against Oklahoma City.

His logo which forms a ‘Claw’ was designed by Leonard himself. He was wanting to make it as perfect and genuine as can be. “I started working on this logo several years ago,” he said. “It took awhile to develop. I started by tracing my hand, then figured out how to incorporate the K, the L and my number 2. I’m happy with how it turned out.”

Nick Depaula, who specializes in NBA Shoe Deals and Brand Interviews, sent out a tweet showing Leonard’s new custom shoe.

The design of the shoe fits Leonard’s personality. The grayscale gradient colorway on these unworn kicks is designed to match the team’s alternate “Signature Spurs” uniform and features Leonard’s trademark “Claw” logo embroidered on the tongue.

Jordan Brand designed the shoe for Leonard to wear if the Spurs were to make it deeper into the playoffs. As we all know now, their run fell short and sneakerheads will have to wait until next season to catch a glimpse of the shoe.
