Anta Is Dropping A “Playoffs Energy” KAI 1 For The NBA Finals

Marco Negrete

Kyrie Irving going back to the NBA Finals in his first Anta signature sneaker is one of the biggest footwear storylines of the entire NBA Playoffs. Irving went from having one of Nike’s top-selling sneaker lines to a very public and controversial breakup with the Swoosh in 2022. Now, less than two years later, Irving is on a new team with a new sneaker brand on feet. His debut KAI 1 has sold out in multiple colorways and Anta is dropping a “Playoffs Energy” pair just in time for the Finals.

The yellow and Acid Green colorway features a woven toe box and Kyrie symbolism, including his logo, 11, and his keys to success (Strength, Agility, Focus, Speed.) The Anta KAI 1 “Playoffs Energy” will release on June 5th at 11 AM CT / 9 AM PST / 12 PM ESTat


Sole Savy is unreal! With a busy schedule it’s hard to keep up on shoes, and the group keeps me up to date on releases, tips on how to manually cop, and a marketplace with killer deals from fellow like minded collectors. It’s changed the sneaker game for me!

@SoleSavy is the truth. They've helped me cop kicks I never would've imagined getting at retail. Members always willing to assist on drops too. And most of all, a REAL community of REAL sneakerheads. These guys should be the gold standard for sneaker communities! #LifetimeMember

My membership paid for itself three fold by being solely responsible for my union 4’s, mesh sacai waffles, sacai blazers, court purple aj1s, glow in the dark yeezy 350s, travis scott lows (which I traded to get desert ore ow’s), air max 1 londons, bc3’s for way under retail etc.

Can't say enough about SS. The stellar help with copping shoes is a given but it's the community that makes it extra special. Hands down one of the best decisions I made as a wannabe sneakerhead.

The community of sneakerheads and resources available to help manually cop are great and really will help you get more Ws. The Zoom calls for hyped drops like Union Jordan 4 only adds to the camaraderie while providing real time instruction
