As of tonight, “Aaronknows”, a renowned shoe spotter around the NBA has confirmed that the Under Armour PE we spotted on Stephen Curry’s feet last night here, is in fact the Micro G Drive. In this slightly blurry picture provided below, we can make out the upper pattern that UA calls ‘ClutchFit’. Back in December, we showed a teaser photo of the compression upper that UA claims serves as a second skin for optimum lockdown and comfort. It is highly likely that we will see a lot more of this new shoe on Steph’s feet during the playoffs. Look out for more colorways and more info on the makeup of the shoe.
From this picture, we can infer that it will have a nearly one-piece upper of the ClutchFit material, a significant heel counter, the famed Micro G cushioning set up (check out our UA basketball reviews to hear more about its reputation), and a generally low profile midsole that seems to have a substantial outrigger at the forefoot to protect Stephen Curry’s ankles, and hopefully yours too. Let us know what you think of the new ClutchFit upper technology and if you will be keeping an eye on these until release.
