The Under Armour Curry 2 Low Hook colorway is arriving today and it’s another reminder that the game has changed.
Not only is Stephen Curry now the preeminent voice of the NBA, both on the court with the record-breaking Warriors and also off of it, but the low-top is now a legitimate force in the best league in the world. For a long time, basketball players at every level believed you couldn’t play ball in low-top sneakers. Not enough support. Rolled ankles. Despite the fact that the game started back in the day with a number of players rocking low-top Converse Chuck Taylor All-Stars, it wasn’t until just a few years ago that brands and players got comfortable with the fact that they could work in the modern era.

But now with sleek silhouettes, optimized basketball sneaker technology, and improving materials used in virtually every sneaker drop, nothing is out of the question. In fact, there are many players who now prefer lower-cut shoes.
Available now at Champs Sports is the Under Armour Curry 2 Low Hook colorway, yet another in a series of dope low-top editions for the reigning NBA MVP. It features a multi-directional traction pattern on the outsole, along with SpeedForm tech, full-length Charged Cushioning, and support shanks in both the heel and midfoot. All of it is wrapped up in a Combat Green mesh upper with red detailing on the branding.
