It’s been nearly four months since the launch of the Under Armour Curry One and it has been well received amongst hoopers. Yesterday, we published our Performance Review for Steph Curry’s first signature shoe, as we encourage you to check that out if you plan on purchasing a pair. Today, photos have surfaced on what could be Curry’s second signature sneaker. The Curry Twos are rumored to release in October in nine different colorways.

We have a quick look at a possible Under Armour Curry Two. Word around the rumor mill has the shoe featuring a UA SpeedForm upper combined with a carbon fiber foot plate. The SpeedForm upper is a material thats commonly recognized in UA’s running shoes. From my first impressions, it felt very light and form fitting as it had no seams. A seamless upper could be a game changer for UA if they decide to go with it.
From the photos, it may not be the case. The current Anafoam upper works perfectly fine, so we’ll be curious to see what UA decides to use for the Curry Twos. As far as that carbon fiber-looking heel counter and midsole, it looks to be a lot more supportive than the Curry One. The Curry One did not have support issues but adding TPU/Carbon Fiber pieces to the upper would increase lateral support and stability for the foot. Concerns that come to mind will be hindering the flexibility and of course, the price point.
Another rumor has UA increasing the retail price from $120 to $140 for the Curry Two. Until UA confirms, take this rumor with a grain of salt but other brands have done so without hesitation. For example, the adidas D Rose line went from $120-130 to $160 and back down again to $140.
Reasons for the price increase can happen because of the rise in quality of the materials or maybe because they’ve caught on to the popularity of the product and wish to increase profit margins. I honestly believe that most sneaker that are currently out should be between $110-150 range so $140 isn’t that bad just yet.
Last but not least, the outsole appears to be segmented as there is a gap to separate the forefoot and heel. We need more photos to confirm, but that would be a nice change.
