Get Up Close and Personal with the Under Armour Curry 2.5

Under Armour is outselling most signature models with the current Curry 2, but can they do the same with the upcoming Under Armour Curry 2.5?

The shoe itself features the same tooling as the Curry 2. Charged cushion and aggressive multi-directional herringbone. It works. Like, it really f***ing works. The traction alone is better than most of what’s currently out there right at this very moment.

Now, the upper of the shoe has been modified. A burrito lacing system made of neoprene replaces the SpeedForm upper of the original. Mesh, or textile, makes up the rest of theUnder Armour Curry 2.5 upper while a synthetic rubber, likely a Kurim material, makes up the overlay. This will provide you with the freedom of movement you’d want out of your shoe without sacrificing support or durability.

Will the Under Armour Curry 2.5 be “better” than the original? Doubtful. However, Under Armour has taken what works, and then re-tooled what didn’t work for some in order for it to be more compatible with the masses. So, what’s that mean? It means these will be a beast on-court.

Get up close and personal with the Under Armour Curry 2.5 below and stay tuned for release information. WearTesters will be doing an updated performance review on the shoe once they drop.

      1. 1) I *Think* I can see the outline of an internal counter in some of the pics above. The upper appears to flex in a little above where the counter would probably end.

        2) I should proof read my comments

  1. Kind of wish it wasnt just a upper change. Then i guess it would be the curry 3 though. Guess theyre alright

  2. They’re interesting, I’ll be checking them out for sure. I especially like the black and red version. But i didn’t like the material look of the upper on the Kobe 7 and this basically looks the same.

  3. That multi colored pair are boss, as the mix gives the shoe a much needed extra dimension, making the shoe look a bit more dense, which is actually very conducive to off court wear. When I first noticed this sort of burrito wrap styling, it was on the Adidas Game Day Lightning. That shoe played pretty well, but the materials used did not allow for a full lock down, as this rubberized material may seem to be able to do.

  4. I really like that gold multicolor, except for the camo outsole; the blackout colorway is clean. Anyone know the pricing?

  5. That burrito wrap style could make way for some dead space like it did for me with the Anta Rondo 2. Proper sizing and materials will make or break this shoe with people.

  6. This shoe just isn’t doing it for me yet. If the changes to the cushioning and the fit are worth it, then I may pick up a pair. So far I’m happy with my Curry 2s.

  7. Still haven’t found the ” it ” color way of the Curry 2 or 2. 5. Perhaps I’ll just wait for the 73 – 9 or the MVP / championship color way to drop.

  8. All the issues ppl are worried about and theyre missing the only real issue that could break this shoe completely. There is most definitely a internal heel counter they did the same thing with all the shoes they reused the curry one tooling on. And the burrito tongue should be no issue because it wraps from the medial to laterial side instead of the opposite. The big issue is the lace hole placement being too far back from the forefoot which causes you too have less control over the containment. I have the micro g pros which have a comfit ankle/tongue on piece setup and the shoes are amazing except for forefoot containment. The lace loops start almost in the midfoot area.

  9. Right now, I’m rockin my all Black Curry Twos, but when I saw the Gold/Red/Black 2.5s, it makes me want to buy them right now.

  10. Guys help I used the curry 2.5 the first day I bought it and at the right side of the shoe is a little damaged is it normal?
