In September 2023, ANTA launched the ANTA KT9 shoes. The ANTA KT9 shoes feature SMART S.A.M technology integrated throughout the heel-to-midsole, providing a more direct cushioning sensation for powerful shock absorption during abrupt stops. With its full-length ANTA Nitrogen technology, it delivers high responsiveness and quick take-offs. The outsole boasts a traction pattern inspired by the oak trees of Auckland, offering multidirectional grip. The midsole incorporates an integrated stabilizer, enhancing smooth force transmission and exceptional support upon heel impact. Compared to traditional adhesive bonding methods, this integrated design boasts superior strength and cohesion, promoting environmental friendliness through its glue-free construction. The inclusion of EVA sidewalls, crafted through 3D-printed molds, forms lateral EVA barriers that ensure a flexible protective experience against rollovers.
