Gordon Hayward had been wearing Klay Thompson’s signature shoe all season long, but things are about to change as the ANTA GH1 is unveiled.
Many were confused when Gordon Hayward stepped out onto the hardwood with a pair of ANTA KT4 Lows. Most thought they were Hayward’s actual signature shoe, when they were just a modified PE until his actual signature shoe was complete.
Hayward’s real signature shoe is the upcoming ANTA GH1 and we’re liking what we see so far.
The build looks to be a mixture between Fuse, Jacquard knit and synthetic leather. Its overall design is a bit reminiscent of the Air Jordan 2011 Q Flight (great sneaker) with some minor tweaks here and there. However, the shoe is a giant step in the right direction if you compare them to Klay’s first signature shoe with ANTA — showing how far the Chinese brand has come in just a few years time.
Cushion is currently unknown, though it looks like it could be ANTA’s A-Shock foam — which is a very comfortable setup.
Traction is the one area we can’t see with this set of images, but we hope more images surface online soon.
An official release date has not been announced, but current rumors state the ANTA GH1 will release in December.
