Summary of 3 Expert Reviews:

Klay Thompson's second signature sneaker is a pleasant surprise. The material and cushioning are very soft and comfortable. Quick cuts and crossovers are no problem thanks to the tacky traction pattern. If you don't care about brand recognition and want to try out a chinese shoe, then this is the way to go. A very well-performing alrounder for an affordable price.

Tacky traction, much-improved cushion and very comfortable. The KT2 has enough of everything to make them a great option on-court, and it comes in at a reasonable price as well.

For $120 this is a great deal. The Anta KT2 is really amazing to play basketball in. I have no complaints at all - I love it!

High-quality materials, great cushioning and phenomenal traction. The Anta KT2 were my first Chinese sneakers and I really enjoyed them on-court!

It’s a combination of the great herringbone pattern and a really sound rubber compound.

Foam pads in the forefoot and heel combined with an EVA midsole. The cushioning is soft and comfortable but still offers enough responsiveness.

While Fuse is not my personal preference, it gets the job done and it’s durable as hell.

Fuse and mesh materials are really comfortable but a little bulky and not very breathable.

Midfoot shank, outrigger, heel counter and great containment of the upper do a solid job.

Large outrigger is great, but there is no additional ankle support from the higher cut.

Support and lockdown are solid and get the job done, but there is nothing special.
