Good to know

Coming out as Stephen Curry’s second signature shoe, the Under Armour Curry Two features multidirectional herringbone, Charged cushioning, and a fantastic-fitting SpeedForm upper. All of which add up to create a solid shoe.

2019 has been a big year for the release of Stephen Curry’s sixth Under Armour basketball shoe. With its overly positive reviews, some users can’t help but compare the shoe to the previous Under Armour models of the Warriors star. There are claims that the Curry 2 has better traction than the newest shoe.

Cushion. Stephen Curry is said to have loved the Charged cushioning on the Curry One; thus, the second iteration also has a full-length Charged foam in the midsole. This foam technology converts impact energy into push-off energy that helps produce explosive steps. The shoe has a slightly extended outrigger that adds stability to the feet. The midsole is split into three sections for a smooth heel-to-toe transition.

Traction. The Curry Two uses an organic herringbone pattern for its outsole. The lines are thick and  multidirectional, ensuring a consistent grip. The shoe can be used indoors or outdoors since the grooves are quite deep. However, sticking to indoors will keep the pattern longer.

Length and Width. The shoe fits true to size. You can go with your standard Under Armour Basketball size when purchasing.

Lockdown. With its one-to-one fit and external TPU heel counter, the foot will not go anywhere. A rigid midfoot shank delivers locked-in stability while the wide lace holes allow the shoe to grasp the feet completely.

The Curry Two’s upper uses a breathable and light constructed material called SpeedForm. This textile-like material covers the midfoot to the heel and is joined to a synthetic material on the toebox. The upper provides ample support and enough flexibility to accommodate an ankle brace. The material conforms to the foot after a couple of wears.

The shoe has a TPU heel cup and midfoot shank for added stability. The UA Curry Two also has Charged cushioning in the midsole.

The Curry Two is considered as a mid-top that balances ankle support with the ability to have a range of motions. The shoe’s aesthetic plays on the different textures of the SpeedForm and the synthetic material. On the medial side of the heel, a phrase written in Stephen Curry’s handwriting says, “I can do all things..” Curry’s initial “SC” is embossed on the tongue and the lateral forefoot. The Under Armour logo is found on the lateral side of the shoe, the tip of the toe box, and the midfoot shank.
