words // Nick DePaula:
When Stephen Curry requested a lighter and lower look for his next signature shoe, still featuring the same “sleek and fast” approach that made the Curry 4 a much-loved model and a championship-proven performer, his team of designers knew the request would take them to a new place.
“Steph is great and has really become part-design thinking and heavily function thinking as well,” says Dave Dombrow, UA’s Chief Design Officer. “With this one specifically, he was thinking about weight and how do we get lighter. He was also thinking about how do we possibly get lower.”
Highlighted by a knit collar sleeve and molded Anafoam support piece around the toe and heel, the newest addition to the Warriors’ sharpshooter’s signature editions introduces an entirely new silhouette for his line.
