7 reasons to buy

  • This shoe’s cushioning feels better than that of the Curry 3 according to many testers; it feels more balanced and delivers a smoother heel-to-toe transition.
  • Most reviewers are pleased with how the adjustable collar works. They observe that it delivers excellent ankle support without sacrificing agility.
  • The Under Armour Curry 3ZERO is a great on-court performer, and a lot of buyers are happy with it.
  • A few find the sneakers stylish, appreciating its cool colors.
  • The upper feels soft and breaks in nicely, some wearers remark.  
  • Several testers find the shoes durable; they hold up well under outdoor conditions.

4 reasons not to buy

  • The traction performs the same way as the Curry 3’s, most testers note. It requires a ton of wiping on dusty courts.
  • Several wearers are unhappy with the Curry 3ZERO’s overall fit.
  • Many testers find the cushioning a bit firmer than that of the Under Armour Curry 3.
  • The laces are too short, one user complains.

Bottom line

The Curry 3ZERO is marketed as a team shoe, similar to LeBron’s Soldier line. Under Armour trimmed down the Curry 3 and the result is a surprisingly solid on-court performer. Its cushioning has been modified to provide a better balance between protection and responsiveness while its adjustable collar delivers better lockdown and support.

Based purely on performance, the Under Armour Curry 3ZERO beats the Curry 3. It provides a better all-around experience that different types of players enjoy.

    Out of the three Curry models released this year, I’d put the low first, the 3Zero slightly behind at second and then the mid.

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.

Performance

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.

Fit

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.

Material

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.

Style

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.
