Klay Thompson is Rocking the ANTA KT1 Low for Team USA

This past week Team USA has been playing exhibition games on the West Coast. For them, Klay Thompson has been rocking the ANTA KT1 Low. So far we’ve seen two high colorways become lows for Rio.

As he did all season, Thompson has been taking care of business from beyond the arch in these exhibition games. Team USA dominated the Chinese team for a 106-57 win at the Staples Center; according to Bleacher Report, Thompson went for 17 points on ten shots and Kevin Durant scored 19 points on 5-of-7 shooting. China and the USA will face off again on Tuesday at Oracle Arena. That game might be an absolute slaughter, as Oracle is the home court of many Team USA players — Thompson, Barnes, Green — and it will soon be Durant’s new home.

Of course, there is no word yet on the ANTA KT1 Low arriving Stateside or on its possible price. We never got the KT1 Back 2 Back, but it would be cool to see a similar colorway release in lowtop form. Would you cop the KT1 Low if it came to the States? Sound off below.

  1. Not bad,

    Curious to know what shoes Barnes is wearing at the pic above,

    Also if what shoe Lowry wore,

    Since both of them are under Adidas I think.

    1. Lowry is wearing the CLB16. Barnes I’m not so sure though. Harrison Barnes is a bit tougher to tell. There are some more close up pics of the sneakers, but they don’t look like anything adidas has released this year. They don’t even look like the Ball 365, which are the only other ones I could think of that aren’t available yet. Maybe its an unannounced Light ‘Em Up 3?
