Social Media Rips Stephen Curry’s New Under Armour Lux Sneakers

Internet trolls are back to spewing hate for Stephen Curry’s latest Under Armour shoe.

When images of the Curry Lux debuted on Friday, it showed a fashion-forward effort from the sportswear brand, featuring premium leather and suede on a mid silhouette.

Still, critics were quick to mock the kicks on social media, firing off a torrent of snarky comments and photos.

Some called it “dad”-like, a familiar complaint that set Twitter ablaze in June, when the Golden State Warriors MVP’s all-white Two Low “Chef” sneakers were released.

But Under Armour has a different opinion of the new kicks.

“Inspiration was taken from the sleek, tailored aesthetic of Stephen off court, in fresh combinations of colors and finishes,” the brand said in a statement. “The juxtaposition of premium materials and bold treatments create a look that is all Stephen.”

The Curry Lux will be available Aug. 5 in five colorways, retailing for $150.
