Meet the Under Armour ClutchFit Prodigy

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.

  1. I said it before and I’ll say it again. Change the upper’s pattern to lightning bolts, batsymbols, S shields, etc and make these the alter ego shoes.

  2. these needed to be below $100 in order to have a chance. only $5 cheaper than the Curry 1’s and $10 cheaper than CF2…. not seeing why these are coming out, let alone in so many colors. seems like UA is trying to make these team sneakers but i’m not seeing that happen.

  3. They just wanted to re use the outsole tooling to save a few bucks on design and manufacturing.

    Word to people dropping thousands on nike yeezys they were too cheap to finish

  4. My best bet as to why UA made these is to accommodate its up-and-coming endorsers (Mudiay, etc.). Perhaps UA can’t give them their sig line yet.

  5. They have the best midsole / traction setup yet can’t give it away unless it has sc 30 on or he has worn it lol.. Ua needs to give out more sigs or get more sig athletes

  6. Honestly this makes ZERO sense to me. Just make more Curry’s to quench the market. However comma I will keep an eye out for these when they hit discount stores. LOL!!!

  7. personally, i totally get what UA is trying to do. they essentially have 2 lines that are extremely popular in the Curry 1 and Clutchfit Drive. it seems like they are capitalizing on the popularity of the 2 lines to establish a couple more lines. i think of it like the hyperdunk with spin-off lines such as hyperfuse, hyper rev, hyper chase, hyper quickness, and etc. but that’s just me…

  8. Get more currys for the poor Europeans ;P
    I need father to son colorway please restock I ll pay double

  9. “The most supportive, incredibly lightweight, and technologically-advanced basketball shoe on the planet.”. Uh, really ? Why they’re selling it as more advanced that the CF drives and the Curry ?

  10. Heck, I HOPE they end up in Marshall’s or ROSS sometime soon! If these get down to about $69, I’ll buy 3-4 pairs! It would be worth it, if just for the “Charged” in the midsole! I’m digging my Curry Ones, and ClutchFit Drives, so I’ll probably grab some of these for beating up on outdoor courts.

  11. I just found the clutch fit drive lows on Eastbay in Black/White and Grey/White so I finally ordered a pair of more “team friendly” colors. Just a heads up in case it hasn’t been said already.

  12. This to me look to be better than the clutchfit drive 2 they are basically the clutchfit 2 with a better curry one sole and more clutch fit and more affordable

  13. They should have made more Curry 1s as they are in high demand. They could’ve at least put a SC logo Ms made it his team shoe. Then they will sell out
