Earlier this season Stephen Curry debuted his sixth signature shoe, the Under Armour Curry 6. Like his previous model (UA Curry 5), the shoe opts for a low-cut design, which allows for optimal movement. This latest release of the Curry 6 is fully dressed in red. Dubbed the ‘Heart of the Town,’ this edition of the shoe draws inspiration on the intimate relationship between the City of Oakland and Curry.
Fresh. New. Innovative. Groundbreaking. That’s the rap that Curry has earned during his illustrious 10-year NBA career. Conversely there are those that say he’s ruining the game. Playing on that idea, the mantra of the Under Armour Curry 6 is to ‘ruin the game.’ The shoe’s upper is constructed from a lightweight, compression-like knit material. An external heel counter adds stability and support, while the speed plate locks your foot down and keeps your toes in place. It all sits atop a full-length UA HOVR midsole which provides an explosive energy return and a light, zero-gravity feel.
