Although his Golden State Warriors squad currently stands in ninth in the NBA Western Conference, Stephen Curry has had handfuls of impressive games throughout the 2020-21 season. Yet, the Akron, Ohio-native has never been satisfied with only making a statement on the hardwood, leveraging his influence and resources to bring attention to topics, issues and people important to him. With his latest Curry Flow 8, the 33-year-old is celebrating Teacher Appreciation Week, and in particular, his mother, Sonya.
Inspired by Mrs. Curry’s time as an educator, the model’s “Class-y” colorway indulges in a near-tonal salmon. Curry Brand’s logo on the tongue slightly-deviates from the monochromatic aesthetic found throughout the breathable, durable upper, but it doesn’t detract from the arrangement designed with Mrs. Curry’s passion for teaching in mind. As he’s done with previous efforts, Curry emphasizes the invaluable role that educators play in nurturing future generations, understanding that it goes well-beyond the four walls of a classroom. In addition to new sneakers, the current Warriors guard will flash-fund projects on DonorsChoose and surprise-join a local Oakland, Calif. teacher’s Zoom call.
