In what almost certainly ensures he’ll wear the Chinese brand for the rest of his NBA career, KG & Anta announced a five-year extension this week. While promoting the release of the “KG4″ in China, the Big Ticket appeared with Anta CEO & chairman Ding Shizhong to share the news with the Chinese media. This is Garnett’s fourth signature shoe with Anta, and at 399 Yuan ($60 US) it will definitely give competitors such as Li Ning & Peak a run for their money.
Garnett told Sina.com that it’s very important to him that kids are able to afford his shoes. When asked if quality was sacrificed to help keep the price so low, KG responded by stating “the shoe is very comfortable-the design features are beautiful“. Garnett also said he “loves” the new shoe. Anta does not have a US distribution deal, so for now, the KG4 is only available in China. Anta products do sometimes find their way to US sites such as EBay though.
