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.
