Under Armour is set to release two new colorways in the Stephen Curry line this weekend. The sportswear company will pay homage to Curry’s team home state with the “Bay Area” pack.
Last year’s Most Valuable Player might have been raised in North Carolina. But, according to Complex, Curry found a second home in the Bay Area. This shouldn’t come as a surprise. His team, Golden State Warriors, is based in Oakland, Northern California. To celebrate Curry’s second home, Under Armour will launch two low sneakers inspired by local Major League Baseball teams.
According to Complex, the first colorway seems to be inspired by the San Francisco Giants. It features the team’s signature black and orange.
Meanwhile, the second colorway seems to take inspiration from the Giant’s rivals from across the bridge. It features the signature white, yellow, and green of the Oakland Athletics.
This is not the first time Under Armour paid homage to things related to the Golden State Warrior. The athletics company also helped celebrate Curry’s birthday in March. They launched a colorway, Curry 2 “Surprise Party,” on Curry’s 28th birthday. His previous Curry 2 low “Energy” was also released in Australia earlier last month. “Energy” had an exclusive sale in the United States in February before its official global release.
Meanwhile, a railing collapsed when fans hounded the basketball star before their game against the Utah Jazz earlier this week. According to Bleacher Report, fans trying to get Curry’s autograph fell when the metal barrier on the side of the stands collapsed. However, the incident did not cause any serious injuries.
