8 reasons to buy

  • Majority of the reviewers agree that the traction of the Curry Two Low is the highlight of the shoe; remarking that regardless of what direction you come from, the shoe stops on a dime when you need it.
  • A few users say that the cushioning is decent especially on the forefoot.
  • Some reviewers like the fit in the toe box, adding that it can accommodate players with wide feet.
  • Many testers commend the shoe for the premium materials used on its upper.
  • At $120, most buyers think the price is just right for the shoe.
  • Almost all users say that the shoe feels more comfortable and breathable than the Curry 1.
  • A lot of wearers appreciate the thicker padding on the shoe’s tongue. Several mention that this is what the sixth Under Armour Stephen Curry shoe is missing.
  • Some say that the color of the shoe stays, and doesn’t get dirty easily like other shoes.

5 reasons not to buy

  • Because the upper is made of textile, majority of the users feel that the shoe does not provide much support. One reviewer complains that when he moves laterally or makes a quick cut, his foot slides over the edge of the shoe.
  • The shoe still needs some breaking in due to the areas with fuse, say some wearers.
  • A few testers advice not to get the Curry 2 Low with the transparent outsole because it attracts dust easily, which can affect the quality of the shoe’s grip. Go for the solid rubber, instead.
  • Several users complain that the craftsmanship is not very good as there were glue stains on the midsole. Many buyers recommend the positively reviewed third Paul George Nike shoe when it comes to aesthetics and the same price.
  • Some users do not recommend the Curry Two Low for competitive basketball.

Bottom line

Many of the wearers love these low-top hoop shoe from the midfoot to the forefoot, taking particular note of the beastly traction and the materials that the shoe is made of. However, the downfall of the shoe is the frequency of heel slippage experienced both by expert reviewers and ordinary wearers. Consequently, they think that the Curry 2 Low works well for light balling but not for high-performance games.

The Curry 2 comes back with the same, if not better, SpeedForm upper, Charged cushion technology, and organic herringbone pattern. This time, as a low-top.

Since the Curry 2 Low is not for fierce playing, Under Armour released a Low-top Stephen Curry basketball shoe as an alternative– the Curry 6.  It has the right amount of HOVR cushioning covered with Energy Web to retain its shape. It is designed like a running shoe to absorb the impact and returns energy.

Cushion. The Curry 2 Low uses the same full-length Charged cushioning in the midsole as the mid-top, thus it performs just at par with the original shoe in converting energy upon landing into energy for take off. Responsiveness and court-feel are both a check on this shoe. The heel is split for a smooth heel-to-toe transition.

Traction. On the outsole, the shoe retains the same firm rubber compound and multidirectional organic herringbone pattern used on the original mid-top; providing the same exact grip that the original shoe was critically acclaimed for.

Length and Width. Although some reviewers say that the shoe runs small and initially feels a little too snug, the Curry Two Low actually fits true to size and will conform to the wearer's feet after breaking in. Hence, going with your standard Under Armour size is advised for this shoe.

Lockdown. The shoe utilizes its external heel counter and midfoot shank to provide a stable foundation and secure fit that work together to eliminate internal slips. The shoe hugs the foot through its top-notch eyestay lacing system.  At the center of the tongue is a lace loop that helps secure it in place.

Created in a bra factory in China, the UA SpeedForm molds to the shape of your foot and provides a light and breathable structure. Unlike the mid-top Curry 2 that uses a combination of SpeedForm and synthetic material on the upper, the low-top uses SpeedForm in its full length. There is a fuse overlay on the toe box to protect the shoe from toe drags.

As mentioned, a full-length Charged cushion is in the midsole of the shoe. Although they are similarly set up, the UA Curry Two Low’s cushion is slightly softer.

For players who prefer designs that are muted but still attractive, the Under Armour Curry 2 Low fits the bill with its clean colorways. The Under Armour logo is embossed on the lateral side of the shoe while the Stephen Curry logo can be seen on the tongue and on the forefoot.
