We’re only a month and a half out from the start of the NBA season, and there’s no question that the Golden State Warriors will be the premier team to watch throughout the entirety of those 82 games thanks to the addition of Kevin Durant. That doesn’t mean that reigning back-to-back MVP Steph Curry is taking a back seat on his own team though. One of the more interesting tidbits will be how Nike and Under Armour coexist in the Bay Area, as two of the top stars on each brand now play for the same squad. UA is already prepping for the second half of the year too thanks to a detailed look at the upcoming UA Curry 3 Low.
Past renditions of Steph Curry’s lowtop have come under scrutiny for looking too much like your dad’s favorite shoe (we’re talking about the infamous Chef Curry colorway of course) but the Curry 3 Low manages to change all of that thanks to a premium carbon fiber shank, unique midsole and heel protection, and a redesigned traction pattern on the outsole in a stand out icy finish. This purple and teal rendition probably pays homage to Steph’s time spent in Charlotte while his dad was a member of the Hornets. An asymmetrical tongue even transforms the medial side with a peculiar ribbed construction. What do you think of the Curry 3 Low?
