T here are a few things that California is widely known for, one of which is earthquakes. When Kawhi Leonard signed a two-year contract with the Los Angeles Clippers, there was an earthquake with a 7.1 magnitude that rattled Los Angeles just hours after news broke. So New Balance released the ‘Seismic Moment’ collection, in remembrance of the earth-shaking day.
The ‘Seismic Moment’ collection features two pairs of sneakers and a hooded sweatshirt with a seismic theme. Leonard debuted the collection during the 2020 NBA All-Star game, when he took home the inaugural Kobe Bryant MVP award, with the 327 for the Western conference team.
The ankle of the 327 features a seismic reading, while the tongue resembles a Richter map. The soles of the sneakers carry the theme with an earthquake reading of the same Richter map, showing a seismic movement.
