Under Armour Curry 9 Review

Pros:
Traction is phenomenal
Improved materials
Cons:
Not the greatest for impact protection

Performance of the Under Armour Curry 9:

The Curry Flow 9 continues to build on the performance that the 8 provided last year. The traction pattern and material are identical, but that's not a bad thing. Reviewers agree that the performance is phenomenal in this regard. For cushioning, the responsive and court feel are fantastic. The only thing the cushion lacks is impact protection which is just adequate. The materials are much improved from last year and feel premium for performance. It's lightweight, thin, and comfortable. The fit starts out snug and narrow, but the materials conform to your foot over time. Support and lockdown continue to be fantastic just like the rest of the Curry line. Reviewers agree that the Curry Flow 9 is one of the best shoes available on the market right now, and the shoe is a pleasure to play in.

The Curry 9 feels like a running shoe that has the lateral containment needed for basketball. The traction is top-tier, and the cushion feels responsive. I absolutely love playing in this shoe.

The Curry 9 is pretty similar to the Curry 8 for the most part. However, there is an improvement in the materials used this year; this leads to improved support and fit.

Overall the Curry 9 Flow is a great shoe that I would highly recommend for players playing the guard positions. The traction and cushion are the true highlights of the shoe, and are slightly improved from the previous model the Curry 8 Flow. The fit was decent enough and I experienced no issues at all. The materials on the other hand could have been more premium but do good job in providing the necessary comfort. The shoe is durable and should last you an entire season.

The Curry 9 has ridiculously grippy traction. The Flow material has no skidding and sliding whatsoever.

The foam is also the traction. It provides a suction-like feeling that keeps you gripped to the floor.

I did not have any issues with the traction on the Curry 9s. It has an insane bite and allows for instant stops once you plant your feet on clean courts.

The Flow outsole feels more firm and responsive compared to last year's model. I also felt springy and bouncy at the same time. The only downside for me was that they are a bit too high off the ground.

The Flow cushion is not the best in basketball shoes. However, it is responsive and provides plenty of court feel. The impact protection is also adequate.
