Klay Thompson’s ANTA KT4 just went low.
Not a lot has changed between the ANTA KT4 and KT4 Low, but the changes that were made are appreciated.
As expected, the KT4 Low utilizes the same tooling as the original model. The same great traction and A-FlashFoam cushion are in place — two of the best aspects from the original KT4. Materials are still a knit, but this version feels thicker, stronger and has targeted ventilation holes in the toe. ANTA removed the one-piece build and replaced it with a more traditional tongue and eyestay area. Again, greatly appreciated changes as these small tweaks will likely make the low top version of the shoe play more well-rounded than the higher cut model.
I’m still rehabbing my calf tear so I am still unable to play. I’m trying to stay patient, but I’m also getting restless. On the flip side… I’m actually scared to play again. My calf tore out of nowhere, a non-contact injury. My body just plain gave out on me during a typical play. Even when I am finally able to step back out onto the floor, I’m not sure how long it’ll take to get the scenario out of my mind so I can play comfortably like I’m used to. What I’m trying to get at is that the performance review won’t be anytime soon, but I will get to it.
