Bottom line

Under Armour carried over what was working with the Curry 3 mid to its low-top version and made some tweaks to areas that needed improvement. The result is a more comfortable shoe that is great to wear on and off the court.

Quick guards will appreciate the Curry 3 Low because it provides better mobility and has responsive cushioning, but bigger players may find the lack of ankle support and impact protection a bit disappointing.

User reviews:

The Under Armour Curry 3 Low features a light and low-cut Threadborne upper and a responsive Charged Cushioning that’s designed to provide unrestricted directional agility so you can slip through the defense and attack the basket with ease.

Cushion. Featuring Charged Cushioning, the Curry 3 Low helps you beat your defenders by absorbing impact during hard landings and then redistributing the energy to generate a responsive first-step performance.

Traction. The durable rubber outsole features a herringbone pattern that amplifies traction, stability, and support.

Length and Width. The Under Armour Curry 3 Low fits true to size. However, several wearers are not satisfied with its overall fit. Buyers are advised to order their real size if they are unable to try the shoes in-store.

Lockdown. Under Armour’s Anafoam wraps the midfoot, ensuring a custom body-mapped fit for a secure and comfortable feel.

The Curry 3 Low also features Meta-wing carbon fiber shanks that provide stability throughout the heel and arch, keeping the wearer supported during quick changes in direction.

To support the game’s most brilliant scorer, Under Armour created Threadborne that is engineered to deliver directional stability and strength. This lightweight material also offers breathability to keep your feet cool and comfortable.

The shoe’s low cut ensures ankle mobility by delivering a full range of motion. It’s designed for superior speed and agility, allowing you to shake past your defenders or knock down open jumpers.

Dressed in predominantly white, the first pair of the Under Armour Curry 3 Low shares a familiar theme with the Curry 2 Low a.k.a the Chef Curry.

Under Armour Curry 3 Low ‘122’

The ‘122’ colorway pays tribute to Stephen’s time at Davidson where he broke the NCAA college freshman 3-point record by making 122 three-pointers. The Under Armour Curry 3 Low ‘122’ features Davidson-inspired hues such as red, white, aluminum, and gray.

Under Armour Curry 3 Low ‘Dark Horse’

The ‘Dark Horse’ colorway is a nod to Stephen Curry’s youth and unlikely rise to the top. While growing up, Stephen frequently played H-O-R-S-E against his father Dell Curry who played 16 seasons in the NBA. The two-time MVP was also seen as too small and too weak to succeed in the NBA.

Under Armour Curry 3 Low ‘Full Circle’

Stephen’s career has, in a way, gone full circle. His first All-Star appearance was at the 2014 NBA All-Star Game held in New Orleans. Three years later, he made a return to “The Big Easy” for another All-Star appearance as a two-time NBA MVP and one-time NBA Champion.

Featuring a New Orleans-inspired theme, the UA Curry 3 Low ‘Full Circle’ comes in a blend of dark purple, bright red, and lime green.

Under Armour Curry 3 Lux Low

Stephen Curry’s third signature shoe receives a lifestyle makeover with the release of the Under Armour Curry 3 Lux Low. These all-white basketball shoes feature a leather upper finished off with a luxurious ostrich texture and striped stitching on the side.
