The fact that Stephen Curry only trails LeBron James in All-Star votes is proof enough that he is one of the NBA’s greatest young stars. Coincidentally, Under Armour has unveiled the Splash Brother’s first signature shoe, the Curry One.

The shoe is inspired by Curry’s grind from unknown prep star to NBA superstar and features Charged Cushioning and Anafoam tech.

Says Under Armour:

Charged Cushioning: The ultimate advancement in energy. The new cushioning system absorbs impact and converts it into a responsive burst to give your first step and change of direction unmatched explosiveness.  

Anafoam: After studying a pressure map of the foot to identify where to distribute support, EVA foam and mesh were molded together to anatomically fit essential pressure points.

Additional performance benefits include:

·      An external heel counter that eliminates sliding and keeps your foot locked in place. 

·      A midfoot TPU shank underfoot for maximum stability.

·      A multi-directional herringbone outsole delivering superior traction and control.

·      A padded mesh tongue with synthetic suede offering protection and increased breathability.

The colors tell their own story about Stephen’s life on and off the court. The “Home” and “Away” colorways represent his love for the Bay area, his team and their fans. The Curry One “Home” features a Royal upper with Taxi and White accents. The Curry One “Away” has a Black upper with Taxi accents and a Camo print.

The Curry one will cost you $120. The Curry One “Home” is out worldwide on Feb. 13 via  UA.com/CurryOne and select retailers. The Curry One “Away” drops a couple of weeks later on Feb. 28.

Under Armour is winning. Check out detailed images of the Curry One in the following pages.
