Profile of Under Armour Curry 3ZER0

Just in time for the 2017 post-season, Under Armour launched the Curry 3ZERO line that focuses on delivering success during the NBA’s most crucial stages. It features a Micro G midsole with Charged Cushioning at the heel, Meta-wing TPU shanks, and a 3-D printed collar to provide you with increased stability and flexibility as you channel Stephen Curry on the court.


Cushion. The Curry 3ZERO’s midsole combines a Micro G foam carrier with an updated Charged Cushioning crash pad at the heel. The midsole promotes energy return, delivering a more stable, flexible, and comfortable ride.

Traction. On the outsole, a detailed herringbone pattern can be seen. This signature pattern delivers optimal grip and total control on the floor, allowing you to make quick cuts and explosive first steps.


Length and Width. The Under Armour Curry 3ZERO's length and width are true to size. However, as with the Curry 3, several users are not happy with how it fits. Buyers are advised to order their actual size if they can’t try the shoes in-store.

Lockdown. An interlocking upper increases lockdown abilities and keeps the ankle supported while a molded collar with a built-in Achilles pillow ensures comfort.

The top eyelets are offset so that they engage the adjustable heel when the shoes are laced up,  cranking it down and locking it in place.

Instead of carbon fiber, the Under Armour Curry 3ZERO has Meta-wing shanks made of TPU that provides stability throughout the forefoot, arch, and heel.


A dual-mesh textile upper replaces the Anafoam and Threadborne used on the Curry 3. This textile upper delivers a breathable and supportive fit while an open-holed mesh tongue enhances ventilation.

To protect against wear, abrasion-resistant TPU can be found along the toe cap.


Though less detailed than the Curry 3, the Under Armour 3ZERO still contains several constants and hallmarks that drive Stephen on the court.

Inspired by Curry’s wrist tattoo, the TCC abbreviation along with its full meaning “Trust. Commitment. Care.” is found on the outsole.

Curry’s favorite Bible verse, Philippians 4:13, is a constant source of inspiration that drives him every day. To motivate and inspire people, a braille code standing for 4:13 is found on the tongue.

As a treat, Stephen’s game-worn PEs were given to one lucky buyer of Ayesha’s cookbook.
