ANTA KT4 Low | Detailed Look and Review

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.

If you wanted to check out the ANTA KT4 Low, they’re available now in two colorways at Famuji Sneaker. You can use code WEARTESTERS for a small discount.

  1. Appreciate the review as always. I’ve really been wanting to try KT’s but I’ve got a question about sizing. I’m one of those lucky 11.5’s and not all brands offer that, including these. if you were leaning one way or the other on sizing, would you go up or down a half size. I know it’s a bit personal preference, but your help with the Puma’s was perfect, went down a half in the Clyde and up a half in the Uproar. Let me know what you think.

    Cheers!

  2. I completely understand how you feel about your injury. It can definitely be just as tough mentally/emotionally as it can be physically (If not moreso) Sending you the best as you continue to recover.

  3. Saw the video, decided to get me a pair after the changes that were made to the kt4 low. I really enjoy playing in the kt4 so i’m hoping the kt4 low is just as good or better

  4. Crazy that Robbie Fuller has this release at around the same time the Rose 1.5 retro drops. I’m sure this has happened to Tinker and Avar on multiple instances, but it’s pretty telling when you’ve made yourself a career in the design business.

  5. Is it just me or does fujima not have a size 10 in any of their shoes? Curious of whether it’s just size 10 doesn’t really exist or if it’s always just sold out cause all sizes are there besides 10
