Sneaker News: Under Armour Curry Two ‘Gold Rings’ Drops This Weekend
In case you’ve been living under a rock the past few days, the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers are back in the NBA finals for the second year in a row. Game 1 is tonight Thursday (June 2) at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, CA at 9 p.m.
Would Stephen Curry win his second-straight championship with the Warriors? One thing that I could confirm is that a basketball player from Akron, Ohio will win the 2016 NBA Finals (LeBron James and Stephen Curry are both from Akron).
Under Armour has a shoe slated to be released during the NBA Finals that’s dedicated to its star player’s champion status.
Priced at $130, the Under Armour Curry Two “Gold Rings” will arrive this Saturday (June 4). The shoe will be available via ua.com, Under Armour Brand Houses throughout the country, and select retail partners.
The shoe, according to the brand, celebrates the 2015 season, during which the franchise won the NBA championship for the first time in 40 years. Its upper is primarily white with blue highlights throughout, including the UA branding, SC branding on the forefoot, tongue and collar. The midsole is blue, gold and white, and is completed with a white outsole.
The gold highlights are what make the sneaker stand out. The color is featured on its insole, its laces, SC branding on the tongue, and stitching around the eyelets. The shoe also features an image of the 2015 championship ring for the Golden State Warriors on the inside of the tongue.
