Earlier this week, after the Curry 8 reveal, we posted our first impressions of the shoe. We reacted to what the press release said about the Cushion, Traction, Materials, and Fit.
Now, we have the Curry 8 in hand for a detailed look, on foot video, and an initial review of the tech specs. Is this Under Armour’s best hoop shoe to-date? That’s what Under Armour is saying in their press release. Does Chris agree with them? How excited is he to get the Curry 8 on court? And does this Curry model have casual appeal?
Find out the answers to all those questions and more by clicking play on the video above.
What’s in the video?
In the video, Chris provides detailed information from all the usual categories, providing the in depth information you need. He supplies expert level opinions on the materials, cushioning, traction, support, and fit. Here’s some of what he discusses:
- Combining the Curry 2, Curry 6, and Curry 4
- Curry Brand debut
- Price increase
- Rubberless outsole
- UA’s new cushioning tech: UA Flow
- New logo’s inspiration
- Heavily padded heel
- Running shoe-like build
- Sizing recommendations
As an added bonus, Mrs. Wing tells us about all her Curry Memories and then compliments the running shoe-like build of the Curry 8.
