Total Score

Klay Thompson ended the 2021-2022 NBA season with a championship trophy in his hands This upcoming season, in addition to his new championship ring, he’ll wear his newest signature sneaker, the ANTA KT 8. If you know your sneaker history, you’ll recognize elements from the Air Jordan 7, Air Jordan 15, and even Air Jordan 1 within this shoe. However, those familiar with the KT line may feel that the cushion isn’t quite as plush as it was in previous years.

The ANTA KT 8 can also be seen in our Best Anta Basketball Shoes and Best for Ankle Support lists.
