Who should buy the Under Armour Curry 5

The Under Armour Curry 5 takes inspiration from Pi and the ancient Greek problem of squaring the circle. These basketball shoes help Stephen accomplish the impossible on the court. It is one of Under Armour’s most innovative basketball sneakers to date and blurs the lines between aesthetics and functionality.

You'd be up for this pair if:

  • You play guard and usually have an agile and speedy game.
  • You're a die-hard fan of Stephen Curry.
