PROS:

  • Traction is great and doesn't pick up dust
  • Very supportive low-top

CONS:

  • Materials are a little underwhelming

Summary of 4 Expert Reviews:

Like with most Under Armour sneakers, the traction of the Curry 7 is outstanding and works on all courts. The combination of Micro-G and HOVR cushioning is slightly disappointing as it is very firm and provides little impact protection - only recommended if you are looking for court feel and responsiveness. The support features are pretty standard but their performance is top-notch, especially for a low-top sneaker. Unfortunately, the materials used in the Curry 7 feel cheap and plasticky and not worthy for an expensive signature model, but they do get the job done. Overall, the Curry 7 is a solid performer that works best for players looking for a responsive low-top with great traction.

The Curry 7 is a solid all-around shoe with cushioning on the firmer side and some feedback/bounce.

This is a great performer with some slight problems: the materials don't feel worthy of a $140 signature model and the cushioning is very firm.

The performance of the Under Armour Curry 7 is really nice, especially if you are looking for a quick, minimal low-top shoe. But for $140, the materials and the cushion technology feels a little underwhelming.

The Under Armour Curry 7 is a beast on-court. Traction and support are awesome, materials work perfectly, and they fit me like a glove. Only the firm cushioning is slightly disappointing.

Traction is phenomenal on clean courts and dust pick up on dorty courts is minimal.

You get a really nice (and silent) bite and you get almost no dust pickup at all.

The multidirectional herringbone traction pattern grips the floor quietly and doesn't require you to wipe no matter where you play.

Overall, cushioning is okay. But if you are looking for a soft and bouncy ride you will be disappointed.

The cushioning is super firm which is great if you are looking for court feel and responsiveness. But if you are looking for a soft and bouncy cushioning, this is not it!

The blend of HOVR and Micro-G is super stiff and gives you a lot of court feel. There is zero compression or bounce and impact protection is just okay.

Unfortunately, the cushion feels much like it does on every other Curry signature shoe — lackluster and firm.

These are easily the least luxurious looking and feeling materials out the seven Curry signature shoes.

The materials are one of the letdowns of the shoe. The mesh doesn't feel premium and the TPU overlays feel super "plasticky". For $140, I expected much better materials.

The quality of the materials feels a little bit cheap, especially for the $140 retail price. But the on-court performance is solid and the comfort is good after the break-in period.

The textile and synthetic materials work well on-court but don't really feel worthy for a Steph Curry signature model.

Some slight break-in time is needed but then you get a comfortable and nicely conforming fit.

I had a little bit of bunching up in the forefoot but other than that, the fit is really nice and comfortable.

The rubber is quite soft but the grooves are pretty deep. These should be solid outdoors but probably not the best choice overall.

The rubber is pretty deep but also soft. You will notice some fraying if you play outdoors but you should be okay for some time.
