During the preseason, Stephen Curry formally introduced his third signature sneaker with the brand, having already set the bar incredibly high with his accomplishments in the last two models. While the initial two signature designs represented an easy evolution in design, the Under Armour Curry 3 looks to take a sharp shift. Most notably, the prominent Under Armour logo has been removed from the collar along the clean bonded and layered upper.
The shoe once again sits atop a Charged Cushioning foam midsole, though this year’s chassis extends up through the heel, doubling as a lockdown counter. Through the upper, you’ll notice a series of bonded layers atop a mesh body. The fabric along the lateral side, dubbed “Threadborne,” actually takes inspiration from the supportive-yet-flexible lightweight materials found in parachutes. Along the midfoot and through the outsole, the support structures have been upgraded for the Curry 3, with carbon fiber wings aiming to lock the foot in.
Though last year’s Curry Two model featured a Speedform upper, for the third edition we once again see the return of Anafoam, last seen on the entire upper of the Curry One. Tying back into the mesh-based fit material, the launch colorway of the Curry 3 incorporates the SC Camo print seen on the very first colorway of Stephen’s debut signature model that he wore on court.
