Klay Thompson new shoes: Rocco steals the show at Anta KT5 launch party

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Klay Thompson's Anta KT5 'Rocco' Colorway Launch Party at the Chase Center went down in the books as a major success.

The Warriors star spent the day greeting smiling fans - humans and dogs alike - who waited for hours to buy the new shoes and meet one of the Bay Area's most dynamic duos.

Since the shoes were inspired by Thompson's beloved bulldog, lots of Dub Nation dogs showed up to the event.

With his own cafe, cake pops, and special plush chair, and of course, shoes designed in his honor, Rocco was the clear star of the show.

He sat on his "thrown" relaxing while Thompson signed shoes, jerseys, and even dog clothing for a happy crowd who have missed the Splash Brother this season as he nurses an ACL injury.

Apparently, he's missed them too.

"We just have such a loyal fan base, anytime you can show love it's always an honor for me," he said.
