Kevin Garnett's move from adidas to Chinese brand ANTA has been one of the bigger sneaker-related stories of the summer. The future Hall of Fame power forward opted out of his adidas contract in July to make the move possible.

Seen below are two versions of his first ANTA signature shoe. The first Anta Garnett shoe sports a mid cut, with a perforated leather upper, padded ankle collar, midfoot strap and heel pull-tab. Garnett's new logo is spotted on the midfoot strap, while his number 5 is seen on the upper eyelet piece. Below the lateral ankle is the ANTA logo.

The second pair we see features a similar cut, but removes the midfoot strap seen on the first pair. Patent leather makes an appearance on the upper, including a piecing below the ankle that houses the ANTA logo. Garnett's logo is seen on the tongue, while his initials appear on the lateral ankle. This pair also has a different hole pattern on the midsole.

No word yet on what exactly this variation is. Sole Collector will continue to bring you the latest news on the Garnett ANTA shoe.
