ANTA Celebrates Klay Thompson’s Supermax Deal With An Extremely Limited Sneaker Release

Even though Klay Thompson‘s season may have come to an unfortunate end due to a torn ACL, the quiet-yet-deadly shooting guard now has 190 million reasons to celebrate, as the Golden State Warriors recently offered him a five-year supermax deal. Thompson’s long-time endorser ANTA is joining in on the festivities as well by preparing a brand new ANTA KT4 “East Bay Times” in honor of the momentous signing. Inspired by Klay’s pre-game habit of reading the paper, this new design is rife with bold details. The entire upper and midsole feature an all over newspaper-style print, calling upon headlines and text printed in both English and Chinese, while also adding large full-color pictures of Klay doing what he does best: shooting jumpers. Signature “K” logos appear on both the sock collar and laces, while the heel tab features his #11. The look is then completed by a translucent outsole with a full-foot color printed photo. The shoes are also accompanied by a special box and tissue paper. Limited to a mere 200 pairs, this ultra-exclusive KT4s will release via Bay Area retailer Oaklandish at 11am PST on July 7th.
