Who should buy the Under Armour Curry 9
The UA Curry 9 appeared to work best for the following:
- guards, especially those with Curry's play style
- indoor players
- wearers with regular-sized feet
- Stephen Curry fans
Who should NOT buy the Curry 9 from Under Armour
Given its design and features, the Curry 9 wouldn't be suitable for big men and centers. There's not much cushioning, so they might end up hurting their feet. They are better off with the Nike LeBrons. If they want to stick with Under Armour, the Embiid One is a nice pick.
Wide-footers are also not this shoe's target. They may go up at least half a size if they MUST get a Curry.
Excellent traction care of the Curry 9, anyone?
Under Armour definitely knew what they were doing when they designed the Curry 9's outsole. The bite was just so consistent you could play absolutely worry-free.
Cushioning setup for guards
The UA Curry 9 delivered a lot of court feel; its midsole is firm and really responsive. The whole tooling also provided energy return.
This would have been a perfect guard shoe if not for the base that was a little too thick.
The upper is built for intense battles
The upper materials are now sturdier and far more responsive than the Curry 8. As a result, support is truly remarkable and stability is carefully ensured.
Even so, this shoe still managed to be really lightweight. It was only 10.4 oz (295 g), which is way below the average that stands at 12.5 oz (354g).
