VERY IMPORTANT: This page is a pre-order page for shoes that have not even left China yet as of March 9th, 2020 (the writing of this). They will be transported via sea to the USA, which is a 30-35 day process. In addition, there are potential regulatory delays that can happen. The earliest possible time these shoes will ship is in mid April. However, based on our past experiences, delays can and do occur so we would count on these arriving to orders with USA addresses in May. And if it happens sooner, great. Do not order these if you are counting on a mid or late April arrival to a USA address. And in line with the previous information, given the transit times to non USA destinations, there is a near 0% chance any of these shoes will arrive to non USA addresses before May.
We can only ship these shoes to the Americas (all of North, Central and South America), Europe (including UK & Ireland) and Australia. These are rules imposed on us by Anta, we requested to be able to ship shoes worldwide. The store will not let you check out with a shipping address outside of the allowed countries.
In addition, some international orders may ship without a box to save on shipping costs. In some cases, adding the box adds $10+ in our shipping costs.
Leather upper, TPU sole. Made by “Anta Sports Products Limited” in China. These are the same shoes as those worn by the Chinese national team but due to rules Anta must follow, the design has been changed to eliminate references to China and the Chinese flag. Anta cannot export products with the word China or representations of the Chinese flag. In addition, these also are a modified and exclusive colorway available only on our store.
At this point, we have no accurate way to actually measure effective heel height without destroying a pair of shoes. Based on feel alone, the heel height feels equivalent to the Nike Romaleo 2. Note that the heel height cannot be judged from looking at the shoe as the plastic cup on the heel rises well above where the heel actually rises to.
We have done size testing and we’ve concluded that these shoes fit VERY similar to Nike Romaleo 2s with the slight exception that they are very slightly narrower. If you order the same size as your Romaleo 2s, there is a very high likelihood that these Antas will fit. The Antas run slightly wider than the Adidas Adipower but are very slightly shorter in our tests. But due to the width differences, they feel like similar sizing as well — although not quite as similar as the Romaleo. We plan on doing more size comparisons in the future but this is all we’ve done at this point.
You can see more sizing info in this comparison video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EjXI3ZLGvyo) and also in this followup video with some more information (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8gAdSPT_qdo). These black/white Antas are the same sizing as the black/red and red/yellow Antas that we’ve had for sale since 2015.
These are the sizes that are available in US male sizing: 2.5, 3, 4, 5.5, 6.5, 7, 8, 8.5, 9.5, 10, 11, 12, 12.5, 13.5. This is every size that Anta makes from 2.5 to 13.5, we did not skip any half sizes that are available in their production run.
