As Under Armour prepares to launch Stephen Curry’s newest addition to his budding signature editions this weekend, several seeding boxes recently showed up at the offices of footwear and hoops media types around the country.
With a blue hued box depicting Curry’s much perfected form, the box goes on to reveal a pair of the new Under Armour Curry 2.5, along with a pair of cropped sweatpants and a short-sleeved shoot-around hoody.
The 2.5, which sits atop the same midsole and outsole as this past fall’s Curry Two, features an upgraded rubberized upper for added protection, along with a neoprene sleeve collar that extends into the medial midfoot.
You’ll notice a warrior’s 5-point diamond spearhead along the lateral side, helping to influence the design of the shoe and representing Stephen as the leader of his five Warriors on the court. Curry’s go-to phrase “I Can Do All Things” can also be spotted nestled into the shoe’s inner toe cap.
Check out the new Under Armour Curry 2.5 in Black / Taxi Yellow below, out now on UA.com and Foot Locker stores, and let us know what you think in the comments section.
