Images of Steph Curry‘s fifth signature sneaker with Under Armour, the Curry 5, have been floating around the internet for the better part of a month, but on Wednesday night the first colorway of his newest sneaker officially dropped in a surprise release for his 30th birthday.
The ‘Pi Day’ Curry 5 hit Under Armour’s website on a limited release, with 314 pairs being made available in the black and metallic iron colorway. The Pi number sequence can be found on the sole of the special edition shoe, as Under Armour boasts the sneaker is inspired by Pi and “squaring the circle” as part of its design aesthetic featuring a “circular construction is built from heel through toe, framing the 90-degree angle of the shoe on foot,” as Curry goes to a low top for his fifth sneaker.
The move to a low top is interesting considering Curry’s first four signature shoes have been high or mid tops, with low top versions coming out later. The five appears to be low top only, as Curry joins the legion of perimeter players who have gone to lows as their primary choice in a signature sneaker.
The price tag on the Curry 5 is $130, and if you miss out on the 314 pairs of the ‘Pi Day’ joints, more colorways will assuredly be on the way soon.
