Recently, news broke that Nike is countersuing Kawhi Leonard in regards the rights and use of his Klaw logo.

Designed by Kawhi himself but debuted during his days with Jordan Brand, the famous logo has stamped plenty of PEs and even a retail release.

As we await to see who gets rights to the logo, peep the Jordans that Kawhi Leonard rocked with his own signature branding.

+ Not a PE but rather a retail release, the Air Jordan 1 High “Champions Think 16” paid tribute to Kawhi’s Finals MVP heroics with the Spurs

+ Releasing at an odd time considering Leonard’s standing with the Spurs, the shoe has skyrocketed in the resale market, hosting the Klaw logo on the tongue and outsole
