After debuting his 4th signature shoe during the opening game of the 2017 NBA Finals, both Stephen Curry and Under Armour have been enjoying a wave of positive feedback for his newest sneaker.
For Stephen, there’s been a welcome first impression on blogs and across social media for the Curry 4, which he’s spent the past year and a half developing with his team at Under Armour. At yesterday’s Warriors practice, he debuted yet another colorway of the 4, in a clean black nubuck upper, white midsole and gold accents throughout. He’s expected to wear the same pair for tonight’s Game 3 of the NBA Finals.
“The whole shoe game is crazy. It takes a long time, a lot of ideas and input and the whole process is kind of fun to go down that road,” Curry told SLAM just after yesterday’s practice. “It’s a progression of the Curry line that we’re trying to continue to elevate and make that best shoe in the market.”
Check out a detailed look of the latest Curry 4 to hit the floor of the NBA Finals, in Stephen’s exact size 12.5.
