Behind the obvious choices of LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony, Chandler Parsons is one of the coveted free-agents of the NBA this offseason. Coming off easily his best year yet, averaging just a shade under 17 points per game, Parsons is being looked at by numerous teams across the NBA as he’s viewed as one of the top young stars. Although we don’t know where Parsons is going to end up just yet, we’re sure that he’ll be lacing up his second signature shoe from the Chinese based brand, Anta.
The Anta Chandler Parsons 2 appears to be built from a fuse-type upper, similar to the Nike Hyperdunk, so it should provide a lightweight and durable feel for players. A real standout here is the outsole, that has a distinct traction pattern that should allow you to stop on a dime and make quick cuts on any surface. The shoe is supported by a 180 Super-A-Jelly unit in the heel for responsive cushioning, which was missing from the first signature model.
Although the Parsons is still technically a free-agent, Anta designed these with a Houston Rockets feel, with a silver upper, red accents through the branding, tongue, and sockliner, and is finished with a white outsole. No official word on when these will hit shelves, but stay tuned for all the latest info and release dates from Anta.
