Steph Curry is closing up his 5-city tour of Asia with Under Armour — revealing a couple new colorways of the Curry Two, in addition to the “Iron Sharpens Iron” colorway from last week. The latter is out in China and will be available in the U.S. on October 24th… along with, apparently, the Father To Son colorway as well!
Like the Curry Ones that dropped on Father’s Day, this one is inspired by father Dell Curry and his stint with the Charlotte Hornets. Since the purple and teal of the Hornets mesh so well together, this colorway is pretty cold as you can see in the gallery above.
More photos and some fun highlight clips from the #UARoadShow below. (A fun follow on Snapchat too, FWIW: @TeamUA)
Steph & UA took to social media to officially reveal the Curry Two — the MVP’s second signature shoe for the upcoming season. This red/yellow/gray colorway is pretty hot and fitting for the exclusive China release on September 6th as Curry himself will embark on his shoe tour overseas later this week.
Below Steph’s ‘gram is another one with the leaked images of the other colorways. Off the bat, the red ones in the top left and the aforeseen USA colorway are my two faves. But we need to see the other ones, especially the GSW colors, in high res first.
This was a test, ha! 🙂 I guess Halle was a guest recently too after browsing the JKL channel for these Curry clips.
BONUS: Anthony Davis was also on the late-night circuit with James Corden last night. He teaches him how to Whip and Nae-Nae in addition to talks of his new contract and NBA 2K16. Also, he’s sitting next to Patrick Stewart!
The NBA put out a new video this week of the Top 100 Plays of the Season. No countdown, but literally taking us from the beginning of the season, through the all-star break, and into the playoffs. Even for a die-hard like me, I saw some plays for the first time in the 20+ minutes above.
Couple quick takeaways: what a year for memorable highlights. Steph’s dream season will always be remembered with his shifty ballhandling on CP3, Russell Westbrook, and Delly in the Finals. And generally speaking too, how about all these buzzer beaters?! So many unbelievable ones.
At yesterday’s USA mini-camp practice, Steph Curry turned heads of sneakerheads by debuting his second signature shoe with UnderArmour — the Curry Two.
Replacing the bubbles of the anafoam are what looks like ventilation holes. In general, the shape and silhouette of the shoe doesn’t change too differently… and I’m cool with that. It looks nice already. I’m eager to see more official photos and learn what technology additions they’re implementing for the second sig, sure to come by the start of the NBA season.
UPDATE: The NBA just posted the Curry Two’s from practice today and you should notice the term “Speedfoam” at the base of the laces. Looking forward to finding what that’s all about…
It’s similar to the black colorway Curry rocked in the Finals (below), but this version differs with a darker shade of gold and an all-black bottom — probably my favorite feature of the shoe.
I previously praised the Curry One for its performance, having copped the Away ‘Camo’ version in April as my on-court shoe, so naturally, I suggest this striking colorway. In fact, I may even swing having the extra pair going forward. As you can see, we’ll all have our chance on Wednesday.
Steph Curry’s first signature shoe just completed a long list of great colorways, most recently on Father’s Day with the Hornets Teal/Purple inspired by his father Dell’s playing days in Charlotte.
And nevermind that the summer is about to see the release of Curry One Lows, which Wardell himself instagrammed below.
Because above in the gallery is a new leak of the Under Armour Curry 2 ‘DubNation’ colorway. I especially resonate with the blue/yellow layers behind the UA logo and in general with the shoe after my rave review last month on the aesthetics and performance from the Away camo colorway.
If you scroll in the slideshow, I included a couple of other rumored looks at Curry 2, and of all of the things to note, I really hope Steph’s “I Can Do All Things…” is etched into the shoe like you’ll see on the side of the red one.
The Curry 2 won’t likely be officially released until the preseason, but for now we can let our imagination wander with the rumored looks and cop the colorways of the Ones and Lows right now.
