I’m not much of a sneakerhead, but I can typically tell you when shoes are bad.
Steph Curry’s all-white dad shoes? Bad. Teammate Klay Thompson’s shoes? Somehow worse.
Thompson and Anta America—a shoe company that somehow only has 1,600 Twitter followers—released these shoes, the “KT2 Chase,” in honor of the Golden State Warriors’ NBA Finals run, and I’m not really sure what they were going for.

What’s the style here? Terrible 90s-style design with a mix of Bigfoot/camo? Gold-plated Steph Curry dad shoes? I can’t tell. Whatever it is, it’s hideous.
Anta — which is based in China — is trying to get its foot into the U.S. market, and while signing Klay Thompson is a good step, you actually need people to want your shoes. It doesn’t seem like that’s going to happen.
