Who should buy the Under Armour Curry 3
What’s good with Under Armour’s Curry line is its consistency. The overall performance has been unwavering since the first version came out. If you’re interested in this pair, it’s because:
- You’re into Under Armour’s high-grade technologies incorporated into this shoe.
- You play like Stephen Curry, or a massive follower of the point guard, as this shoe best suits speedy players.
The latest signature shoe from two-time NBA MVP Stephen Curry provides infinite support and total control on the court.
UA’s Charged cushioning technology
Under Armour’s unique Charged cushioning foam absorbs a forceful impact and turns it into a responsive burst of energy. The Charged cushioning of the Curry 3 provides responsiveness that enhances first-step speed and quick direction changes.
Meta-Wing carbon fiber shanks line the heel to expressly support the ankle and heel bones for better balancing, pivoting, and shock absorption.
Curry 3’s heavy-duty outsole
The durable solid rubber outsole of the Curry 3 is covered with multidirectional herringbone. This traction pattern amplifies stability, grip, and support on the court. The outsole also features a pivot circle located below the ball of the foot.
Stable lockdown system
The asymmetrical lacing system pulls the medial side, while the dynamic system on the lateral side locks the midfoot in place.
The Meta-Wing carbon fiber shanks provide locked-in stability through the heel, arch, and forefoot. Soft Anafoam molds to the shape of the foot to provide a perfect fit.
Under Armour’s Threadborne setup
The Under Armour Curry 3 features a new Threadborne upper that delivers lightweight directional strength. It’s inspired by the fiber materials found in parachutes, known as paracord.
Threadborne uses high tension threads to provide the perfect combination of support and breathability. Under Armour also brings back Anafoam to deliver body-mapped fit, lightweight structure, and added support.
Incredible stable design of Curry 3
The Under Armour Curry 3 is designed for infinite support and stability. Additional foam is placed around the ankle collar, and a large heel counter wraps the back of the shoe. Also, the mid-cut design of the Curry 3 does not restrict movement and is ankle brace friendly.
Steph’s signature style
The shoe’s large heel counter displays the SC/30 logo and Steph’s signature is found on the Meta-Wing at the medial side. These details complete the shoe’s form-fitting silhouette.
The Curry 3 concept
Under Armour changed their approach with the conceptualization of the Curry 3. The design team was more interested in involving Steph in the early stages of the project.
They asked Steph to look at some sketches and have him circle what he likes, and cross out what he didn’t like. The Curry-approved design was a concept that was inspired by fighter jets.
