There aren’t that many NBA players who have signature shoes, but the Golden State Warriors have three such players: Steph Curry, Kevin Durant, and Klay Thompson.
Thompson is signed with Chinese sportswear company Anta, where he is the company’s largest basketball signing, and seems very happy with his sneaker line. And now he’s got a new signature shoe, as pictures of the KT4 - the fourth iteration of Thompson’s shoe - have surfaced. Check them out:

At first glance, the KT4’s are pretty similar to previous versions of Thompson’s shoes. They’re sleek and smooth, but also relatively simple. They certainly look like basketball shoes - they won’t be anyone’s top choice for lifestyle sneakers, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing.
The shoes do look a bit more modern than some of Thompson’s previous kicks. Anta has cut out some unnecessary details, and made these shoes a little more to the point.
I like them. And with the new rules allowing players to wear any color sneakers, we’ll hopefully get to see Klay show off his personality with some unique colorways.
