Before we get into the launch of the “Essential” colorway for the Under Armour Curry 2 Low, consider this: Stephen Curry and Under Armour aren’t dominating basketball culture the way Michael Jordan once did, but we really do need to be honest with ourselves. No other basketball-first sneaker carries as much excitement as this one does. Curry has gone from humble beginnings–in sneaker terms–to the top of the pyramid within 24 months. It’s an astonishing rise. It’s something no one saw coming, maybe not even Curry himself.
In that sense, Curry’s rise is eerily similar to what Allen Iverson went through during the early 2000s. And while AI told me recently that, “I’m second behind Mike. I’ll always be cemented in the history of the sneaker game because the numbers don’t lie,” Curry can make some of the same claims in today’s game.
People love Curry right now and as UA continues to grow, it’s incredible to think about what percentage of that growth has been directly influenced by one man?
No matter what that number is, Stephen Curry–and Under Armour along with him–continues to win. As we close in on the end of the bad weather, they’re now releasing a low-top colorway for Curry’s signature sneaker. Available tomorrow at Champs Sports is this low-top edition for the Under Armour Curry 2.
You should know all about the Curry Two at this point. It’s an affordable performance option that comes equipped with a SpeedForm upper and Charged cushioning. The SpeedForm is used within UA’s running sneakers to provide a more comfortable fit. Meanwhile, Charged cushioning takes the brunt of punishment for you. It absorbs the impact and transfers energy.
The season never stops for the serious basketball player, and this option is perfect for anyone looking to gear up their offseason workouts this year.
