ANTA KT 4 Review

Pros:
Premium knitted upper material
Awesome traction
Cons:
Small containment issues on lateral cuts

Performance of the ANTA KT 4:

Anta really outdid themselves with this years version of Klay Thompson's signature line. The upper material is super premium and feels similar to Lebron 15's battleknit but provides more lockdown and support. The traction is phenomenal on clean courts and works well enough once courts get dustier. The foam cushioning is very soft and comfortable but, unfortunately, also a little mushy. Overall, the Anta KT4 is a great performance basketball shoe that delivers premium materials and modern tech at a very fair price of only $125.

Overall, the Anta KT4 is one of the best performing sneakers available. The cushion is both bouncy and responsive. The traction is awesome, and it has all the support you need.

For $125 you get premium materials and modern tech. I enjoyed playing in these a lot! The only issues are the slightly mushy cushioning and the problematic containment on lateral cuts.

The KT4 uses the same fingerprint traction pattern used in the KT3 and it works incredibly well.

The traction pattern bites super hard and stops on a dime. On dirty courts, it collects dust easily and it's not easy to wipe.

The foam cushioning used is very similar to Boost and is very bouncy/springy in the rear while the front offered solid court feel with impact protection.

The cushion is awesome. Bouncy in the forefoot and plenty of impact protection in the heel. It is one of the best cushion setups available.

The cushioning is super soft - almost too soft. Impact protection is crazy good but it feels a bit mushy and I didn't like the high offset of the heel.

The upper material looks similar to the Battleknit used in the Lebron 15 but offers more lockdown and is less stretchy.

This colorway (East Bay Times) specifically was a good performer since it had synthetic leather, but I was not a fan of the mesh uppers for performance.

The TPU counter on the lateral side of the shoe offers amazing lateral support and stability to help with side steps and quick stops when planting your foot.

There is a little bit of sliding on lateral cuts and the ankle support is pretty minimal.

The knitted upper material started off a little snug but now it's almost too loose.

I went down half a size because the knit stretches out with time.
