The newest releases are a four different versions of Under Armour’s Curry 3s. Because this weekend is the NBA All-Star Game, the first ones we’re going to see are the Curry 3 “Brass Band” mids, which are meant to represent New Orleans and you can cop on Feb. 17.
Next up, Under Armour wanted to honor a significant milestone that Curry achieved 10 years ago. During his freshman year at Davidson, Curry hit 122 3-pointers, which was an NCAA record. The Curry 3 “122” lows pay homage to his time in college, as they share the same colors as Davidson.
Moving on, we have the Curry 3 “Dark Horse” lows. In the event you think these are meant to do the whole “Curry was an underdog in the NBA” thing, well, you’re incorrect. According to Under Armour, these are meant to pay tribute to the hoop in the back of Curry’s grandparents’ house from when he was a child, a place where he honed his shot and his dad would ruin him in H-O-R-S-E as a kid.
Lastly, we have the most vibrant pair of the bunch in the Curry 3 “Full Circle” low. These are meant to signify how Curry’s All-Star Game career has come full circle – he was the leading vote getter for the All-Star game in 2014. The location of that game? You guessed it: New Orleans.
While you can get the “Brass Band” mids on Feb. 17 for $150, the other three kicks are all available one day earlier for $120. These are part of a series called the Curry 3 Power of 3.
Like we said, Curry releases don’t always have the best reputation because of how the internet responded to the Curry 2 low “Chef” back when it dropped. The good news for Under Armour is that these will almost certainly get a better reception.
