ANTA KT 1 ’73 Wins’


It’s been one hell of a year for Warriors fans. Not only do the Dubs have the best record in the league, but they also are the new most winningest team in NBA history as they narrowly pass the Chicago Bulls’ historic 72-10 record that was set 20 years ago.

Not only has it been a good year for the Bay Area, but Klay Thompson isn’t doing too bad himself. Thompson was voted an NBA All-Star for the first time in his career. Won the NBA 3-Point contest during the same weekend. He set an NBA record, scoring 37 points in one quarter. Oh, and he also celebrated his very first signature sneaker with ANTA — the ANTA KT 1. Yeah, it’s been a great year so far. This pair celebrates Thompson’s historic NBA season by showcasing some of the highlights throughout the 2015 – 2016 season through the sole of the shoe. They also proudly sport the mark “73” at the tongue along with his signature.

This version of the ANTA KT 1 will be seen often as Klay is supposed to wear them throughout the Playoffs — sans the translucent outsole. Don’t expect this pair to hit retailers either as there were only three pairs made — although the Playoff version is releasing overseas in two colorways. One is sitting on display at the ANTA headquarters, one was given to Klay Thompson, and the last was surprisingly given to WearTesters.

Enjoy the detailed look at Klay’s celebratory signature sneaker and if you’re a fellow Bay Area native then we send digital high fives all around. Here’s hoping the Warriors finish off the season strong with another title. After all, without a ring, the wins don’t mean a thing.

      1. Wow! Just wow! Very nice looking pair and you guys got 1 of only 3 pairs. That’s pretty amazing!

  1. i think i’m gonna have to pick up a pair of the playoffs, been meaning to try the kt1s for a minute now, and the blue ones just look great
    these ones, of course, are really sick

  2. They look awesome, it’s been an awesome season, and if they go Back-2-Back, this could turn-out a legendary season(we’re 80% there already).

    1. Woah woah woah. I’d say more like 50% there. Half the battle is just getting to the playoffs, then it becomes a whole different beast. I wouldn’t bet on it at all, but they “could” lose in the 1st round and be the 06-07 Mavs all over again. That squad was 67-15 I believe. Would that feel like they made 80% of the journey? Currently at 50%, you then break up each round of the playoffs into 12.5% progress additions and they’ll make it to that 100% legendary season. I cant front, I’m rooting for them.

  3. This was his second all star appearance, but I’m nitpicking really lol… Congrats on getting a pair! Weartesters coming up!!!

    1. Ouch bro.

      But you’re kinda right. They’re just not so lust-worthy. The whole aspect of limited accessibility to the regular release really does nothing to make people pass up pick up local options unless they were hardcare GS fans.

      They gave Klay functional shoes to play it smart, so I don’t want to come off like I’m actually hating on the pair. Rather take a shoe that takes care him for the season than just look the part.

  4. OK so as these came out pretty fast after the end of the regular season, I have to ask :

    How many other samples did they make ? “74” ? “75” ? Haha… Nice you got a pair nightwing, nice memorabilia of this era 🙂
