This year, Under Armour celebrated Christmas by dropping three different, new Curry 3 colorways, all three of which were dressed up in festive color schemes and had matching nicknames. The one featuring bright Red uppers with Black- and Grey-colored uppers was dubbed “Red Hot Santa,” the one predominantly Burgundy-colored uppers was dubbed “Magi,” and finally, the Silver- and White-colored pair was appropriately dubbed “Raw Sugar.” Rather than before or on Christmas Day, these sneakers arrived at retailers on December 26th and retailed at a price of $140. With 2016 almost over, Under Armour have unveiled their first Curry 3 release of 2017 and have confirmed its arrival.
The Golden State Warriors is based in Oakland and 36 people in the city were recently killed on December 2nd after a fire broke out in a Ghost Ship warehouse. Stephen Curry and Under Armour quickly decided to make an effort to aid and support the Oakland warehouse fire’s victims. Under Armour whipped up two custom, one-of-one “Ghost Ship” iterations of the Curry 3 as a dedication to and to raise funds for the victims of the fire. By December 21st, Under Armour managed to raise more than $10,000 each for the mid-top and the low-top sneakers, both of which were worn by Stephen Curry himself.
2016 is almost over and 2017 is just around the corner, so it seems that Under Armour is experimenting with new ideas. For the latest colorway of the Curry 3, they have apparently decided to make use of military motifs, and so it is aptly dubbed “Flight Jacket.” As its nickname suggests, it is inspired by flight jackets and so it is dressed up in dark tones, namely Artillery Green and Black, while Radiate Yellow-colored detailing can also be spotted all over. Its heel supports even feature “SC30” branding along with “I can do all things” written below it. Last but not least, the soles have a herringbone pattern underneath them.
Judging from everything that has been reported about Under Armour so far, it sees that this will be the first release from the brand in 2017. Under Armour has already confirmed that this Curry 3 “Flight Jacket” will be arriving at retailers on January 15th, 2017.
