The ANTA KT 1 Gets Knitted


The ANTA KT 1 is Klay Thompson’s first signature shoe and with the NBA Playoffs steadily approaching, his shoe will get a small upgrade for the Warrior’s Playoff run.

A knitted upper has replaced the Fuse the original version featured. There is Fuse at the toe and eyestay for durability and support, and you can see two colorways that currently feature the new setup. The tongue also features Klay’s signature versus the KT 1 logo from the previous versions.

We’ve spotted Klay rocking these on-court earlier in the season, but he was supposed to have held off until the Playoffs. These are both said to be releasing so once we have more concrete information then we’ll update you here at WearTesters.

In the meantime, you can check out our performance review of the ANTA KT 1 here, and let us know what you think of the new knitted version below in the comment section. Has anyone played in the KT 1?

  1. Awesome look, personally I like the smoothness, and slightly more stable traits of woven more, but a great update for the Playoffs.

  2. I’m excited to see these small brands growing in a fast pace, they bring diversity and competition to the oligopolistic sneaker game, as well as new designs!

  3. It got a really awesome score in Nightwing’s review,

    If Anta read that review they could have upgraded the cushion,

    But overall this one also looks great.

    Still at $100?

  4. like the materials but put the woven on the toe section of the shoe instead of the heel

  5. Nice to see other brands like Anta making headways. Hopefully they can break Nike’s stranglehold on the market & bring their prices down.

  6. I have a few pair of Anta Wade’s. They fit and feel like UA’s, but these knits are trash. You can see with the bleeding over on the blue line. Just watch Klay , he doesn’t even play in them most of the time.

  7. I just copped a pair of these the other day. I really like them, they look even better in person. I have a few pairs of Curry 2’s and these fit just like them. Happy with the buy and they came with a Klay Thompson drawstring bag and a pair of KT socks! All for $100, that’s a win win situation.
