Steph Curry: World’s Best Basketball Player, The World’s Worst Sneakers
Image source Under Armor
Steph Curry has been conquering the world the past few years. He’s won two NBA MVPs, led his team to an NBA championship (possibly two by the time you read this), broke the NBA record for three-pointers in a season (three times!!) and led his team to an NBA record 73 regular season wins.
Curry is incredible to watch play basketball and seems like a genuinely good guy, so it would be uncommon to hear anyone say a bad thing about him. That is, until Curry came out with his new signature shoe, the “Chef Curry 2s.”
Normally I tend to think the Internet overreacts to things like this, but this time I think they’re dead on. How can the best basketball player in the world’s signature shoe look like something your mom would wear to work before putting on her pumps?
When your shoes are earning names like “the Air Josh Grobans,” “the Shuffleboard Lows,” “the Beat the Traffic” 8s, and the “Make Sure You’re Home before Dark” 5s, you’ve done something horribly, horribly wrong.
Curry has the whole basketball thing figured out, might be best if he leaves the shoe game to Jordan.
