We recently published our performance review of Klay Thompson’s sixth signature shoe (which is a great performer), and now we have our first look at its low top rendition—the ANTA KT6 Low.
The KT6 Low appears to utilize the same tooling as its hightop counterpart, but with a completely new upper that cuts back on the 3D Flow support modules that the KT6 featured, making this model a bit less intricate. The tooling is expected to utilize the same mountain water ripple inspired traction pattern, full length Alti Flash foam midsole, along with the SMART S.A.M. heel puck, the midfoot carbon fiber torsional shank plate, and the 3D Flow medial and lateral caging.
The upper sports a knitted one-piece bootie construction which is overlaid by a likely to be stiffer, more structured molded knit that is fused at the forefoot. A standard rope lacing enclosure with holes through the upper that act as the ylets is intact which also utilizes wired cables to improve the lockdown and containment of the shoe.
Unfortunately it remains unlikely that Klay Thompson is unable to debut the KT6 Low on the hardwood this season due to his recovery from his achilles injury. However, it’s likely that his fellow ANTA athletes, Kevon Looney and Jacob Evans, who both play for the Golden State Warriors, will debut them at some point on court during the 2020-21 NBA season. Let us know what you think of the ANTA KT6 Low in the comments below. Stay tuned for further updates as they become available.
