7 reasons to buy

  • According to most buyers, the Under Armour Curry 3 Low is an excellent pair of basketball sneakers. They are saying that it’s a quality shoe that performs great on-court.
  • A handful of players are pleased with the Charged Cushioning. They notice that it has excellent response, making each of their movements quicker.
  • Several wearers are happy with the shoes sleek and stylish look.
  • The lows fit better than the mids, more than a handful observe.
  • Some users notice that the shoes feel great. They are saying that it’s great for walking and comfortable to wear for an extended period.
  • Most testers have no issues with the traction.
  • The materials feel softer and do not require any break-in time according to several reviewers.

5 reasons not to buy

  • The Curry 3 Low feels tight around the ankle according to some wearers. They also complain that the edges dig into the ankles.
  • Several buyers are not happy with how the shoes fit. Some are saying it runs small while others say it runs large.
  • Just like the mid-top version, some players are reporting that the low’s traction collects dust quickly and requires frequent wiping.
  • A small number of users are disappointed with how stiff the Charged Cushioning feels.
  • The laces are hard to tighten, and lace pressure is felt at the top, a few complain.

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.

    The Curry 3 Low is one of the few shoes that I prefer as a low over a mid.
    The Curry 3 Low performed well for me, despite that ankle biting issue.

Profile of Under Armour Curry 3 Low

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.

Performance

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.

Fit

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.

Material

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.

Style

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.
