Summary of 5 Expert Reviews:

Pros:

Improved Materials
Very light

CONS:

Minimal Cushioning

Performance of the Under Armour Curry 4 Low:

The sole of the Curry 4 Low remains unchanged from the High version. That's a good thing when it comes to the great multi-directional traction pattern, but most experts would have loved an upgrade to the cheap and minimal EVA cushioning setup. The cheap synthetic upper materials of the High version are largely replaced by more premium and comfortable textile knit. Overall, the Curry 4 Low is a slight improvement over the high-top and the perfect shoe for quick guards who are looking for a light, responsive, and minimal low-top.

On the court, the Curry 4 Low doesn’t really do anything better than the mid, plus I had some heel slip.

Better materials and fit compared to the Highs. But the same lackluster cushioning prevents these shoes from being a top performer.

I love how light and minimal the Curry 4 Low feels. Traction and cushion remained unchanged from the High-Top, but materials and fit are much improved.

The Curry 4 Low offers great traction and stability for low-to-the-ground guards that prefer to be quick on their feet.

The cushioning feels okay albeit boring. Don’t expect it to last as the EVUA gets compressed.

The Low uses more knit and less synthetics which leads to a much more comfortable shoe.

The Curry 4 Low breaks in rather quickly but will remain snug at all times.
