The History Of The Under Armour Curry 3

The Under Armour Curry 3 was released in 2016. By 2016, Stephen Curry was already considered one of the all-time great basketball players. The Under Armour Curry 3 continued the Under Armour and Stephen Curry relationship.


Under Armour used a new technology for the 3, Threadborne. The tech consisted of an ultra-durable yarn which was designed to allow Curry to flourish for an 82 game season. The 3 offered a snug fit that would support Curry’s ankle while he was making his signature quick cuts on the court. The shoe was lightweight but offered a lot of support. The 3 mirrored the first two Curry sneakers in terms of design. After the 3, the line would begin to change its aesthetic.
