Summary of 4 Expert Reviews:

Most reviewers like the performance of the Under Armour Curry 3Zero2, even though nobody likes its looks. The traction is one of the standout features and works well on all surfaces - even outdoors. The mix of MicroG and Charged cushioning provides a great mix of responsiveness and impact protection and beats the cushioning of more expensive Steph Curry signature models. The only downside of this shoe is the lack of a traditional heel counter and the slight issues with containment in the forefoot. Overall, this is a very solid performer at an affordable price.

If the Curry 3 Zero2 came with a heel counter it would be the perfect guard shoe.

The Steph Curry 3 Zero2 does almost everything exceptionally well with traction, fit and stability being the very high highlights.

The Sole Brothers
The performance is okay for a budget model, but these won't make it into the rotation.

The traction was a little bit lackluster. Dust didn't really affect the performance.

This shoe has the cushion that the Curry 5 lacked without the loss of court feel.

If you want low to the ground but more than adequate impact protection, you’ll really like these.

Very responsive but the impact protection is not great. My feet did hurt a little bit after playing for a while.

The Maxprene upper material feels like a stronger less stretchy version of neoprene and is very comfortable.

The Maxprene upper feels very comfortable but isn't crazy supportive.

Support of the Under Armour Curry 3Zero 2:

RicheeKim
On hard cuts, you sometimes slip out of the footbed a little bit because of the flexible upper materials. Otherwise the support was really nice.

Wide outsole and great forefoot outrigger, but I would have liked the addition of a heel counter.

No heel counter at all, but stability is outstanding thanks to the wide outsole and outrigger.

No heel slippage but the materials stretched a little too much and there is virtually no ankle support

The fit started off well but after a while, I started swimming in these. I used an extra insole which improved the fit a lot.

Even though the rubber is soft, the deep grooves will probably do fine outdoors.
