This one is for the fans of Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors. The point guard’s iconic basketball shoes Curry One Dub Nation are now available in Asia for the first time. Under Armour has launched the sneakers in the Asian market, which honour the loyal fans of the Golden State Warriors.
Fans in the region can now relive Curry’s triumph through the team’s official Royal Blue and Golden Yellow colours. Curry One Dub Nation was first released by Under Armour in May 2015. The launch of the shoe coincided with the athlete leading the team to the Western Conference Finals on the way to his first NBA title.
A Tribute To Golden State Warriors Fans
The collaborative sneakers pay tribute to fans of the NBA team as well as its star player. ‘Dub Nation’ was a collective name originally coined by the most loyal supporters of the team. The iconic basketball shoes draw inspiration from the Warriors home uniform. They feature a white upper with a speckled blue midsole and bright yellow outsole.
Other notable details will also appease fans. The ‘MMTB’ acronym on the aglets, short for “Make My Teammates Better”, is a signature Curry mantra for continuous improvement. There is also a “4:13” embroidered at the top of the shoe tongue with the self-affirming line “I can do all things” on the interior tongue lining. Hardcore fans will recognise this as the verse from Philippians 4:13 in the Bible, which is a line from which Curry derives strength and motivation to be the best he can be on and off the court.
Aside from the colours and motifs, the Curry One Dub Nation also features some of Under Armour’s most trusted technologies. The AnaFoam upper delivers a body-mapped fit, lightweight structure and support. The Charged Cushioning on the other hand absorbs heavy impact and converts the energy into responsive quickness.
Overall, it stands as a competitive pair of basketball sneakers for the court. It is probably worth a look too, even if you are not a fan of the Golden State Warriors.
The Curry One Dub Nation retails for $239 and is available at Under Armour, Footlocker and Limited Edt stores.
