Summary of 5 Expert Reviews:

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.

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.

I think the Curry 4 Low is an upgrade to the original version and I really love to play in them.

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

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

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

Little to none impact protection, but great court-feel and responsiveness.

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.
