I have been able to come up with something similar. however the leader arrow takes on the callout box boundary properties. as seen in the image below

current look of label

How can I go about this?

I am working with ArcGIS Desktop 10.2.2


You have to drill deep into the symbol editor to create a similar effect. Below is a screenshot of which buttons you need to navigate. Eventually you need to add another layer to the symbol, in this case another fill which is white and has a thicker outline. This will give it the halo effect, but it will also apply to the leader.

You end with something like this:

Callout label

    Rather than using the fallout button. You might be able to use the leader and configure a text box. – Brad Nesom Feb 18 '17 at 15:11
