Defensive Player of the Year
@ Jordan / Nike
Art Direction & Design
When Kawhi Leonard was named Defensive Player of the Year for the second year in a row, Jordan commemorated the occasion with a custom footwear kit. The “lock-down defender” concept came to life through the solid metal box form as well as a custom “2” perforated pattern with subtle iridescent paint.

I cannot overstate how heavy this thing was.
