ANTA KT3 Review

Pros:
Great traction
Comfortable cushioning
Cons:
Specific fit

Performance of the ANTA KT3:

The Anta KT3 is the third signature sneaker of Klay Thompson and delivers significant improvements over the already very well-received KT2. The multi-directional traction pattern works exceptionally well on all surfaces, the cushioning is a little firmer in the forefoot but provides excellent impact protection in the heel, and the knitted upper is comfortable and feels very premium. The only downside is the specific fit which might not work for everybody. Other than that, at a retail price of only $120, this is one of the best performance sneakers on the market!

One of the best performance shoes I have played in this year, especially at this price. A very nice shoe that will work for every type of player.

The Anta KT3 is a great shoe. Between the Dame 4, Curry 4 and KT3 I have one hell of a lineup to choose from on any given night.

I think Anta killed it with the KT3. This is a very affordable signature sneaker with a premium knitted upper, great traction and responsive cushioning.

I enjoyed playing in the Anta KT3 and I would easily recommend the shoe for multiple player positions because of it's adequate cushioning.

The traction is super nice. On a clean court, it bites really hard, on a dusty court you will need to wipe a lot.

Traction on the ANTA KT3 looks like a finger print, à la the Air Jordan XX3, and like other circular patterns, it works wonderfully.

The translucent rubber attracts a lot of dust and requires constant wiping which gets annoying quickly.

The forefoot area heavily focuses on court feel while the heel focuses on impact protection.

You are going to love the cushion if you are a forefoot heavy player. Very low-to-the-ground and responsive but minimal energy return.

The support was great and made me want to run my cuts a little tighter and more quickly - just like Klay Thompson!

The traditional lacing system and the internal heel counter provide excellent containment. The wide outrigger ensures lateral stability during cuts.

The KT3 fit is rather particular and won't work for every player. Tight in the midfoot but there is a bit of dead space in the toe box.
