Inspired and built for the player that is “Wired Different” new Curry 5, light, low and built for optimum speed and agility


Basketball was wired the same for decades – a game predicated on size and brute strength, played within 24 feet of the rim, where jab steps were secondary to el-bow jabs, where athleticism ruled all…until Stephen Curry finally crack the code. Stephen is “Wired Different” from his predecessors. A challenger who has hacked handles, hacked range and in the opinion of some – even ruined the game.

They said he was not as tall and not as strong as his counterparts. But what he lacked in size he made up for in his IQ. He’s shifty and quick, strategic and surgical, plus he packs unlimited range from three. Over the years, he has single-handedly turned the court into a 40-foot playground behind the arc, with vision to match that opens up the floor causing glitches for opposing teams.  They said he was a one-off, a cheat-code, but he has upgraded into a full-blown operating system, helping lead an evolution of basketball, giving players of all sizes – and abilities – the confidence to achieve the impossible through hard work, determination and will. In order to continue to break the game and shatter the status quo, Stephen has created a new operating system that’s “Wired Different” for the modern game.


Introducing the Curry 5 – light, low and built for optimum speed and agility. The full knit construction with molded cushioning and a unique lockdown lacing system brings total precision to the shoe’s 360 degree fit and feel. And an unbelievable grip traction system, built for all courts, provides quick-stop traction; enabling Stephen to make cuts on a dime, no matter what the surface. The Ultimate upgrade is here…and it’s Wired Different.


Other key components of the Curry 5 design include:

• EVA cushioning midsole delivers underfoot responsiveness
• The Curry 5 locks in Stephen’s heel with Anafoam and has a super light upper that doesn’t weigh him down
• New lacing system and stretchable upper allows for ease of entry
• The midsole delivers lightweight underfoot responsiveness
• The speed plate and flex zones in the midsole and outsole help Stephen stay light
• Containment areas in the forefoot lateral wall and the heel lock in the foot, enabling Stephen to play his game on his toes
• Weight: 11.8 oz.

The launch colorway of the Curry 5 is striking on court, balanced by a white and black-patterned upper with pops of red accents on the tongue and forefoot traction underfoot. A deep lockdown lacing system makes for a striking visual as laces look to dive under the material, and back up over the stretchable upper. The white midsole is accented by subtle but clean icy blue speckle, rounding out a simple but dynamic silhouette for theCurry 5.

The collection is priced at RM 729. The Curry 5 is available now at all Under Armour Brand Houses and online store.
