This year marks the 30th anniversary of R.L. Stine’s Goosebumps franchise – brand new book Slappy, Beware! is on the way – and New Balance is celebrating with a pair of Goosebumps-themed sneakers that were made in partnership with basketball player Kawhi Leonard.
A huge fan of Goosebumps, the LA Clippers athlete based the design of the sneakers on classic Goosebumps colors, while of course weaving in the brand’s trademark slime.
“Kawhi utilized the classic Goosebumps shades of orange and green, while including unique design cues such as a slimy eyelet pattern and tonal spooky graphics that draw from iconic moments in the books,” New Balance previews the upcoming sneakers this week.
“One of the most exciting things about working with the New Balance design team is that they give me creative freedom,” says Leonard. “Goosebumps was one of my favorite books growing up, so to see that on my own shoe is awesome. I can’t wait to see people in this shoe.”
Selling for $160, the Goosebumps shoes will be available on April 20, 2022.
You’ll be able to grab them from Foot Locker and NewBalance.com.
