This has become the silly sidebar story of the NBA.
Under Armour released a new version of the Curry 2 Low shoe — an all white version — and Twitter mercilessly mocked it as a “dad shoe.” Or the kind of shoe seniors wear when the walk the mall for exercise. Or as a shuffleboard shoe. You get the idea. Curry responded by defending them, then he wore a pair during the Warriors practice on Sunday, with the inscription “straight fire.”
Good news Stephen Curry, you have another famous sports celebrity in your corner.
The bad news Curry: Pete Carroll is 64. And a father. Which seems to be the target demographic for these shoes.
