Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors continue to be a beacon of strength for the Oakland community after the tragedy of a sudden fire at the Ghost Ship, a warehouse concert space where 36 people lost their lives earlier this month. Steph Curry honored the victims by wearing two different custom editions of the UA Curry 3 during a game against the New York Knicks on December 15th, and now those game worn PEs are up for auction on eBay to help raise money for the Oakland Fire Relief Fund.
“We were all devastated by the news of this tragedy and the loss of so many young lives right here in our community,” Curry said. “My goal in wearing these shoes was to not only honor the victims that lost their lives that night, but also to raise awareness for the relief efforts that are underway. Hopefully through this auction we can help further assist with those efforts.”
Each Curry 3 Oakland Strong customs pay respect to the victims through exclusive “Ghost Ship” wordmarks in graffiti style writing while the initials of each fire victim hit both sides of each shoe. Other phrases like ‘Always remember’ are also displayed.
