NBA All Star and Boston Celtics’ forward, Gordon Hayward, has debuted his second signature shoe—the ANTA GH2. Hayward’s debut GH1 signature shoe is our favorite basketball shoe not only of 2020, but also of all time for performance and aesthetics. Not only do they play excellent, but they also look fantastic for casual wear as well.
The ANTA GH2 arrives with a build featuring with a one-piece bootie constructed synthetic leather upper, paired with a lacing enclosure that utilizes nylon cabled eyelets. While it’s not confirmed as of yet, the midsole set-up will likely be A Flash Foam, which was featured in the GH1 and KT5. Moreover, the midsole is slightly caged at the midfoot by an angled ANTA logo for midsole stability, and lockdown at the midfoot of the upper. Hayward’s logo is now also placed at the rear on the GH2, instead of the tongue on the GH1. A new feature added to the GH2 is also an external, visible shank plate, something that was not featured on the GH1. An outsole featuring a storytelling tiger-paw inspired traction pattern completes the look.
Let us know what you think of the ANTA GH2 in the comments below. The GH2 looks to take everything from the already phenomenal performance of the GH1, and slightly modify it, to continue the trend of premier performance in the Gordon Hayward ANTA signature line. Stay tuned for further updates.
