Profile of the Anta KT 4

The Anta KT 4 is the fourth release from the Chinese brand’s Klay Thompson signature series. Following the “Do not fix what ain’t broken” mantra, these basketball shoes have similar features that are also found on the KT 3 - the fingerprint pattern on the outsole and the cutout at the back of the heel. A new feature found on these basketball shoes is the A-FlashFoam technology.

Performance

Cushion. The Anta KT 4 features the A-FlashFoam cushion under the heel area. This technology is made of a thick foam that absorbs the impact as the foot hits the ground. It is caged on the lateral side in order to ensure that lateral movements are stable and traction is maximized.

Traction. The outsole of the Anta KT 4 is made of a solid rubber compound. It features the fingerprint pattern that is similar to the one found on the KT 3 model. It provides superb traction on both clean and dusty courts.

Fit

Length and Width. These basketball shoes fit true to size, lengthwise. Widthwise, though, some reviews mention that it is a bit narrow, but eventually stretches because of the knit material.

Lockdown. The Anta KT 4 uses Flywire-like eyelets that extend to the insole. Once the laces are tied, they can keep the midfoot locked in. Also, it features a one-bootie construction, which also effectively locks the foot in.

Material

The material used on the upper of the Anta KT 4 is called A-Web. This technology features a 360-degree ventilation function. It comes in three layers, namely the upper mesh, lower mesh, and the middle EVA layer. Together, these materials create a soft, comfortable, supportive, and protective fit.

Style

The silhouette of the Anta KT 4 looks similar to the LeBron 15 basketball shoes. The KT 4 have a high-top collar with a cutout at the back of the heel, a carry-over feature from the KT 3. As a result, these shoes offer enough ankle support without restricting ankle movement.
