“My shoes are light.”
Curry is referring to his new Curry 4 shoes by Under Armour, which he debuted in Game 1 of the NBA Finals.
While the specifications haven’t been released yet, the shoes do look a lot lighter than their predecessors, seemingly made of a thinner, more flexible material than the composite materials of prior iterations.
Under Armour is banking on these being a more successful release than the Curry 3’s which underwhelmed the company as far as sales, having taken a massive roll of the dice by overproducing and not getting enough demand in exchange.
Curry finished with 28 points, a game-high 10 assists, and three steals to boot in the Warriors’ 113-91 Game 1 win.
