I have been a huge fan of the Steph Curry line of Under Armour basketball shoes since their inception. I’m currently on my third pair (the Steph Curry 2.5s) and love to play in them. So naturally when I saw that Under Armour had unveiled the new Curry 3 shoes today, I got really excited. After all, Steph Curry the player loves 3s, so you’d think that Under Armour would have made these especially awesome for him.
But then I saw them. And honestly I’m more than a little bummed out.
To me, the Curry 3s look boxy as hell. They’re flat at the top. They look big around the heel. The inside of the foot (not inside the shoe) looks weird AF. Obviously I need to try them out to properly give them a review, but just judging from the cover these are not nice at all. I get that the shoes need to be different than your previous shoes, but still. C’mon people. Apparently, I’m not the only one either who dislike these either.
People are ripping these things to shreds on Twitter.
The Under Armour Curry 3 releases in the “Dub Nation Heritage” blue colorway on Oct. 25 for $140 USD. A special “SC Camo” colorway follows Oct. 27 at select retailers and online.
