Under Armour Curry 6's high-grade cushioning

The Under Armour Curry 6 features a full-length HOVR cushion. Originally made for running, it is restructured to become bouncier but remain firm enough to keep it under control. The design team of Under Armour makes sure that every player gets every bit of benefit from the HOVR cushioning.

It promises court feel, impact protection, explosiveness, and responsiveness. To sustain the shape of the HOVR cushioning, it is entirely covered with Energy Web, which can be seen on the sides and the outsole.

The full-length Speed Plate works like a midfoot shank. It extends to the lateral side of the Curry 6 shoes to provide adequate torsional support. It is also segmented on that side. During cuts and crosses, the SpeedPlate bends and springs back immediately to ensure stability. It also allows wearers a quick footwork switch in a split second.

Superb outsole setup of Under Armour Curry 6

The shoe is designed like a running, making it lighter, smaller, and faster. It is built for a guard’s need for speed. The outsole of the Curry 6 is divided into three sections in response to Stephen Curry’s footwork. The heel area has an axe-like groove. The forefoot has six sections that are designed to give better support to Steph’s explosive basketball movements. The midfoot are is the least altered, featuring only thin parallel grooves.

Speaking of lines, the lateral side features a series of parallel lines that follow the outline of that side of the shoe. The medial side has a cross-hatched pattern that is inspired by the stucco found in the house that Steph grew up in when he was Charlotte, North Carolina. The unique pattern that is created delivers superior traction on any court surface.
