Under Armour just released a brand new model dubbed the ClutchFit Prodigy.
While performance savvy consumers will quickly see that these are a slightly cheaper alternative to the Curry One as they utilize the same tooling. With ClutchFit technology, basic customers will be scratching their heads as to why exactly are these releasing when UA could have just made more Curry Ones to satisfy the public’s needs. I understand that it was cheaper for them to reuse tooling and apply it to a new model, every brand does it, so we’re not knocking that. But when you clearly have people trying to buy the Curry One why waste resources manufacturing these soon-to-be Marshall’s exclusives versus something you know will actually sell? Will these be good performers? Yes. Will people buy them because they cannot obtain the Curry One? No.
That’s just my thoughts. Again, I know these will be solid on-court options, but I can’t help but wonder why they don’t give consumers what they want instead of trying to force feed them something new. Maybe I’m way off base here. Feel free to share your thoughts on the subject in the comment section below. For those interested in checking these out, they’re available now at Eastbay.
