Forget a perfect game or even a perfect season, this has been a perfect year for Stephen Curry. The reigning MVP is about to win the first unanimous MVP while obliterating several NBA shooting records amid turning in one of the greatest advanced statistical seasons ever (he’s on pace to set the record for best PER in a season). He’s also the leader of arguably the greatest basketball team ever assembled and the man who has single-handedly turned Under Armour into a viable force in basketball and sneaker culture. Right now, Curry is selling more sneakers in the United States than every other active player, including LeBron.
Some of that hype is undoubtedly coming from his play on the court, but the Under Armour Curry 2 deserves some credit as well. A few of the releases were so dope that they must be considered some of Curry’s best sneakers ever.
In fact, the latest colorway of the Curry 2 to drop is for the Easter holiday. Fitting. At the moment, it’s a shoe with as much crossover appeal as anything the NBA can offer. With it coming in a grey colorway that sports hits of mint green and gold branding, and coming just in time for Easter and spring, expect to see this one both on and off the floor for the kids.

Available Saturday at Champs Sports is the latest mid colorway from Curry and UA for the Under Armour Curry 2, except this one is strictly for the kids out there. As usual, the shoe comes equipped with a molded upper to get a precision fit. An external heel counter and midfoot shanks are also here for a steady ride.
With spring and Easter here, Stephen Curry’s latest Under Armour Curry 2 is exactly what’s needed for the kids. So necessary. Traditionally, the NBA Easter holiday has been dominated by other brands when it comes to sneakers. This year, it looks like it might be someone else.
