Summary of 5 Expert Reviews:
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!

Expert Reviews of the ANTA KT3:

9.4
The Sole Brothers
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.
9.1
NightWing2303 [weartesters.com]
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.
8.5
Nelson Chan @Hoop and Life
Premium materials as well as improved cushioning and traction - a definitive improvement over the KT2.
8.5

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

Traction of the ANTA KT3

9.5
NightWing2303 [weartesters.com]
Traction on the ANTA KT3 looks like a finger print, à la the Air Jordan XX3, and like other circular patterns, it works wonderfully.
9
The Sole Brothers
The traction is super nice. On a clean court, it bites really hard, on a dusty court you will need to wipe a lot.
9
JAHRONMON [Youtube]
The traction works fantastic on all surfaces.

Nelson Chan @Hoop and Life
The multi-directional traction pattern grips to the floor really well.

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

Cushion of the ANTA KT3

10
The Sole Brothers
The cushioning feels soft and plush but is still responsive. I really enjoyed this setup.
9
NightWing2303 [weartesters.com]
The forefoot area heavily focuses on court feel while the heel focuses on impact protection.
9
JAHRONMON [Youtube]
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.
9
Nelson Chan @Hoop and Life
The cushioning is soft but still responsive. Impact protection in the heel is improved compared to the KT2.
8.5

The Anta EVE cushioning is very comfortable and provides a lot of impact protection.

Material of the ANTA KT3

10
The Sole Brothers
The knitted upper material is super soft and doesn't need any break-in period.
9
NightWing2303 [weartesters.com]
Durable and comfortable knit backed by nylon and glue — and I love it.
9
JAHRONMON [Youtube]
The fully knitted upper is flexible and comfortable.

The Anta KT3 features a knit upper which is on par with today's trend.

Support of the ANTA KT3

The Sole Brothers
I didn't have any issues with support and lockdown.

NightWing2303 [weartesters.com]
Everything you need is there and it all works well.

JAHRONMON [Youtube]
The support was great and made me want to run my cuts a little tighter and more quickly - just like Klay Thompson!
8
Nelson Chan @Hoop and Life
The traditional lacing system and the internal heel counter provide excellent containment. The wide outrigger ensures lateral stability during cuts.

Fit of the ANTA KT3

9
The Sole Brothers
The fit is amazing.
9
NightWing2303 [weartesters.com]
The fit is a bit looser and less suffocating than in the KT2.
8.5
Analykix.com
The fit is nice and works well even without the strap.
8
JAHRONMON [Youtube]
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.
8
Nelson Chan @Hoop and Life
The material and cushioning are really comfortable. Unfortunately, the lateral outrigger was pinching my toes on my left foot.

Is Outdoor Use Recommended?

good
Nelson Chan @Hoop and Life
Traction held up really nicely indoors and outdoors.

The Sole Brothers
Rubber is pretty firm, so outdoor use should be okay.
