Summary of 5 Expert Reviews:

Pros:

Adjustable Ankle Support
Very supportive

CONS:

Cheaper materials compared to Curry 3

Performance of the Under Armour Curry 3Zero:

The Curry 3Zero is part of a slightly downgraded and more affordable line of Steph Curry shoes. The traction has remained the same and performs very well on clean courts but many reviewers complained about inconsistency on (mildly) dusty courts. The reduced price shows in the materials which are less premium than in the original Curry 3 but still do a good job. Universally liked by shoe critics is the innovative adjustable heel which provides great lockdown and works especially great for ankle brace wearers. Overall, the Curry 3Zero is a solid performer at a fair price.

Just like the Curry 3, nothing special. I wasn't happy with the fit and the traction. Let's hope for an improved Curry 4.

The SC 3Zero is a solid second line shoe. Overall, I wasn't a big fan of the new cushioning setup and the inconsistent traction. However, I did like the improved ankle support.

For a $120 this is not a bad shoe! Really good on-court performer and I like the fit much better compared to the original Curry 3. I just wish they hadn't downgraded the material from Threadborne to Mesh.

Out of the three Curry models released this year, I’d put the Low first, the 3Zero slightly behind at second and then the Mid. The Curry 3 Zero is a more minimal shoe that doesn't rely on bells and whistles or tech mumbo-jumbo, which I personally enjoy.

Is the Curry 3ZER0 leaps and bounds better than the Curry 3? No. However, the cushion feels more refined and offers a better balance between stability and protection. If you’re a guard or a shooter and plan on trying out the Curry 3ZER0 I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

On clean courts you are ready to go, on mildly dusty courts you will need to wipe from time to time.

Herringbone and solid rubber — the things that make for some beastly traction no matter the court condition.

Overall there is no real difference in cushioning so if you didn’t like the cushioning on the 2.5 or 3, you won’t like these either. Personally, I find these work well for me and my game but to each their own.

Sacrifices come in the form of the materials. Reinforced mesh is used instead of Threadborne and plastic instead of carbon fiber for the meta wing and midfoot shank.

This setup is very durable and worked just fine on-court. However, some break-in time is required.
