After besting the Golden State Warriors in Game 6, the Toronto Raptors have become our 2019 NBA Champions. With celebration still fresh in the air, New Balance pays tribute to Toronto’s historic victory.
To celebrate the occasion, New Balance has dropped two exclusive renditions of their classic 990v5 and 997 models. With Raptor’s colors in mind, each pair features a black mesh upper while purple suede details throughout. Small hits of grey suede accents are featured with red present on the laces for the 990v5 and on the 997’s heel counter. Both the New Balance “N” and branding will include reflective, silver detailing.
News of the exclusive New Balance being available for pre-order on June 19th in combination with the recent signing of Raptor’s star player Kawhi Leonard spurred in enough traffic to crash the web store. With both sold out already, be sure to keep an eye out for possible restocks by following New Balance.
