Whats The Difference Between Under Armour Curry 2.5 and Under Armour Curry 3

The Under Armour Curry 3 will be worn by Stephen Curry during the 2016-17 NBA Season as he and the Golden State Warriors look to have another dominating season. and the  Under Armour Curry 2.5 is the Stephen Curry’s second signature shoe. It was built for the 2016 NBA Playoffs and inspired by California’s Bay Bridge, which links San Francisco to Oakland. I play long time for these two pair of shoes , but whats the difference performance review for these two pair of shoes ?

We will check it as below :



First of all, there are obvious differences in appearance. Many people think that Curry 3 is not unique enough to be branded compared to other Under Armour basketball shoes, but don’t forget that this is Stephen Curry’s signature shoe.  From the Curry 1 to Curry 2.5, as a signature shoe, the Curry shoes  seem look similarity .maybe in the information explosion age, the shoes need to be more unique and special , so that will be  attract more customers.But the Curry 3  just difference compare with the last model.Whether you like it or not, Under Armour curry 3 just change the appearance also the performance is different.


Material :

Under Armour brand  focuses on Stephen Curry himself at present. So the Curry 3 uses the new ThreadborneTM upper, which is a technology that can be explored. The core element of the upper is from paracord of parachute rope material. The ultra-durable fiber of the rope has extremely tough and firm . And the warp-weaving upper provides excellent support with lightweight.otherwise the Curry 2.5 was relies on by TPU .But the Curry 2.5 have more different feeling .


A closer look at Curry 3, the upper is made up of a large number of vertical and horizontal lines. According to the official statement, although paracord is inherently limited in color, but we can check there is no the same  color of  Curry shoes.

The designer said that the delicateness and functionality of the ThreadborneTM fiber itself . Curry 3 creates a more natural fit than Curry 2.5 with thick padding.  it’s the same as Curry. Intimate, but with an unimaginable legacy, the ThreadborneTM upper will not always remind you of its existence, but it does continue to provide solid performance support.



Under Armour has introduced Threadborne into its material arsenal and it’s pretty awesome so far. High tensile threads are used throughout the lateral side of the shoe and provide you with a comfortable fit without sacrificing any support.



For the lace system ,the Curry 3  is more special ,The key point is that the top of the shoelace hole has reinforcement. When you tighten the shoelace of Curry 3, there is a feeling of ready to go.  The kind of excitement that is ready for adrenaline to flow through the body.


Supporting ,

We look at Curry 3 ,  the supporting is amazing ,Plenty of solid support features are used throughout the Curry 3. The exaggerated midsole sculpts into the heel counter while true carbon fiber wings are in place for additional security. Your ankle isn’t going anywhere in these guys so long as you’re wearing your proper size. The curry 2.5 actually nice too .The anafoam used extends from the inside shoe to the heel to protected , we can felt more  soft padding.



The side is called the Meta-Wing Stabilizer. It looks like the wing of an airplane. That is will be great help for the entire support structure. The individual part of the arch is the body.


Traction :

For the Curry 3, I think the traction will be great than the Curry 2.5, though the curry 2.5 is alos nice . but the Curry 3 has more strong grip.Herringbone is utilized once again, and like the Curry models that have come before the 3, traction is beastly.he pattern on the Curry 2.5 was a bit more aggressive than what is used on the 3, but the rubber compound on the 3 is much more tacky in comparison.


Curry 3’s grip is absolutely enough,but the Curry 2.5 is better. I feel a little more improved in the focus area. Perhaps Curry is not explosive.  but I still hopes to have a significant improvement on Curry 4.



Here are more picture as below :


It can be seen that this Charged Cushioning is still used multi-density configuration, and the heel is further strengthened for the suspension. After the actual wear, the overall cushioning feeling  that bring to us is nice , but the response is very balanced and balanced.

Overall, Curry 3 and Curry just have a little difference, but the performance is nice , the  Curry 3  used the Threadborne™material , which more provide the supporting , but the Curry 2.5 material will be more comfortable.
