Sneakerheads who miss out on the latest variant of Klay Thompson's signature shoe are in for a ruff Sunday morning.
The Warriors star announced Saturday night he'd release a Rocco-themed version of the Anta KT5 at the Warriors Shop at Chase Center on Sunday at 10 a.m.
It has been a big week for Rocco and Anta. Thompson's English bulldog starred in an ad for the Chinese shoe company with Thompson wearing shoes bearing the pup's likeness, and it closed with the tagline "Rocco Comes First."
Rocco is a fixture in Thompson's life, staying by the guard's side as he rehabbed a torn left ACL. That injury will keep Thompson out for the duration of the NBA season, but the 30-year-old got a lot of shots up before the Warriors' win over the Phoenix Suns on Saturday night.
Thompson was one of 44 finalists USA Basketball will consider taking to the Summer Olympics in Tokyo. Rocco will be there if the three-time champion is, and perhaps he'll bring the shoes to Japan.
