ALAMEDA – Stephen Curry’s Under Armour signature shoe is in production and is likely headed for a release at the beginning of 2015, the Warriors guard said Monday.
“I’ve seen it here and there with updates and things like that,” Curry said at Leydecker Park, where he and Under Armour and the Warriors partnered to refurbish a basketball court. “It’s supposed to stay on the low until it’s ready to be released, but that’s a dream come true to be able to be a part of the design, the development of your own shoe that’s going to be your inspiration.”
Curry, who participated in the ribbon-cutting ceremony to unveil a court that features his personal logo, is the face of Under Armour’s basketball division. He left Nike for a multi-year partnership with less-established Under Armour in October coming off setting the NBA record for made 3-pointers in a season.
“Just from Day 1 our relationship with them, they’ve always preached a commitment to family and dedication to everything that we do we try to be the best at it,” Curry said. “So I like that fight, that underdog mentality they have. It hits right at home for me. Everything that we’ve done has been top notch.”
Curry and Under Armour this week held the first SC30 Select Camp , allowing 20 top high school guards from around the world to work with the Warriors star at Saint Joseph Notre Dame High School.
