This Under Armour Sneaker Will Pay Tribute To All Of Steph Curry’s Past Doubters

Before he was recognized by many as the world’s greatest shooter in the sport of basketball, Golden State Warriors’ point guard Stephen Curry’s skills were always overlooked.

Standing at just 5 feet 7 inches tall while playing for his Queensway Christian College middle school in Charlotte, N.C., no one believed that Curry could accomplish basketball greatness this early. But he did, securing an undefeated season en route to winning three conference titles and three state playoff appearances while shattering scoring records as a college freshman at Davidson College in North Carolina. Today, Curry is a three-time NBA Champion, a two-time league MVP and a single-season record holder. The brand-new UA Curry 6 “Underrated,” dropping this Friday, commemorates that journey.

Inspired by the retro Warriors’ jersey from Curry’s rookie season, the Curry’s latest signature sneaker features a bold navy upper with a breathable knit design that’s paired with vibrant orange accents throughout. This shoe is the first of its kind to feature a full-length HOVR cushioning midsole and a translucent outsole.

“[The year] 2009 is where we started. We had the jerseys from back in the day. We wanted to tie in that part of Warrior history. Those were lonely days, winning maybe 23 games that year, but it reminds me of where we came from. … This colorway is about humble beginnings” says Curry, as he reflects on his career.
