Under Armour Curry 4 Review

Pros:
Perfect for quick guards
Excellent Fit
Cons:
Minimal cushioning

Performance of the Under Armour Curry 4:

After the disappointing last model, Under Armour is back with a winner. The Curry 4 was built to fit exactly what Steph Curry is looking for in basketball shoes: quickness and court feel. So, if you are a quick guard and you are looking for a shoe that is very responsive and allows you to change directions with zero lag, then the Curry 4 is the perfect shoe for you! However, if you are a big guy and you need a decent amount of impact protection, then the firm cushioning will likely be a deal breaker.

The Curry 4 feels super-duper responsive. As one of the lightest shoes on the market, it provides great traction, tight fit, and low-to-the-ground feeling which makes it the perfect shoe for quick guards.

The Curry 4 is a great shoe for quick, ball-handling point guards who need speed with no lag.

The Under Armour Curry 4 is a fantastic shoe for anyone looking for court feel. For the people who want impact protection I’d say stay clear from the Curry 4.

The Curry 4 feels like it should have come after the Curry 2. It provides a better fit, greater stability, and more control.

I have mixed feelings about the Curry 4. Traction is a strong point, materials are 50:50, support and cushion are decent. However, I can't help to be a little disappointed.

The Under Armour Curry 4 is a great shoe for guards! It is a fast and responsive shoe, and it is very light. The traction was amazing on clean courts, and it was pretty good on dust as well. The shoe lacks cushioning, but if you want a responsive shoe with amazing court feel, this shoe is for you! The support was pretty good because of the upper, and it locks you in so your foot doesn’t move off the footbed. The upper is also pretty good, it is thin and breathable, but it takes time to break in.

The spiral pattern put in place offers multi-directional coverage for any move performed at any time. Linear coverage is fantastic and lateral coverage is handled very well too.

Stability really shines on the Curry 4. Low to the ground, firm cushioning, forefoot outrigger, a split heel, and a very stable wide outsole feel stable and safe on all movements.

Overall the fit is excellent if you fit the shoe correctly or if you adjust to the shoe by wearing thinner or thicker socks. Unfortunately, the fit is very specific which makes it hard to find the right size.
