The San Francisco 49ers wrapped up Sunday in their first home game of the season. Not only did the 49ers defeat the Seattle Seahawks 27-7, but despite the dreary weather conditions, several stars showed up at Levi’s Stadium.
Before the game, NFL legend Jerry Rice was seen shaking hands with NBA All-Star Kawhi Leonard. The Los Angeles Clippers forward unexpectedly made headlines for his fashion choices.
Kawhi Leonard’s outfit
As you can see in the video tweeted above, Leonard wears a relaxed outfit as he is known. The 6’7″ forward wore blue sweatpants to match his hoodie, a gray down jacket and shoes that appeared aged.
Surprisingly, Leonard benefit from the latest fashion trends. The mix of cozy fits in combination with “dad shoes” is slowly turning the soft-spoken star into a fashion icon. Below is everything fans need to know about Leonard’s lifestyle shoes.

The shoe’s designers consciously opted for an aged aesthetic. The open-cell mesh upper features discolored details. Despite its looks, the pre-yellowed midsole offers ample cushioning.
These shoes should not be confused with Leonard’s signature performance basketball shoe, the New Balance KAWHI II. Fans can find these hoop shoes on the New Balance website for $159.99 in men’s sizes.
Fans looking to copy Leonard’s laid-back style can easily find similar pairs of New Balance lifestyle shoes at a much lower price. We recommend you buy other colorways of the 1906R or one of the different models that New Balance makes regularly.
