I always like Curry series sneakers. After the post season, there are more and more different colorways of Under Armour Curry 4. Under Armour also releases the unique Chinese colorway for Curry 4. For the first time, Curry 4 becomes rich and colorful.
Like me, many shoe aficionados can’t wait to try on Curry 4. So what about its performance?
Although it’s not soft, but it’s enough.
At present the cushion technologies are mainly made for soft, but Under Armour always keep its stiffiness. If you are familiar with Curry series, you should know that the cushion of Curry is not soft but solid. Comparing with previous generations, Curry 4 is more focused on cushion performance. Firstly, the drop of front and rear sole is bigger. And the feeling of half sole is close to the ground, it’s convenient for quick starting and turning. But the rear sole is thicker. It has more pertinence. For the light-footed speed type players, it’s more effective So the cushion of Curry 4 is not soft, but it’s enough.
It has double safeguard and it’s quite stable for the wide outsole.
You may notice that it adds a piece of TPU design on the outside of vamp and the midsole. Although it’s only a little improvement, but it is a great support to the overall stability of the shoes. With the particular insole construction, the shoes become more stable.
The vamp fit closely to the foot. It has great wrapping performance.
My deepest experience of Curry 4 is the comfort level. Comparing with previous Curry 4, the size of EUR43 is the most suitable one for me. I need to wear EUR44 for previous generations. As the inner interspace of Curry 4 is bigger. Although it’s not easy to wear, but after wearing, the shoes fit closely to the foot.
In addition, there is a round design to fit well with the ankle part of Curry 4. So for comfort level, Curry 4 can get 9.5 scores.
The traction performance is above average. The grains of outsole is simple.
The outsole grains of UA series is always the simple type. The outsole of Curry 4 mainly depends on the rounded design. The outsole can adapt to multi-angle friction. It’s more effective for Curry. Although the traction and abrasive resistance of Curry 4 is not perfect, but it’s enough for normal people’s request.
The design is light, and it has great stabilization.
The first feeling of Curry 4 is comfort and light. The unit weight is only about 329g. It’s very light. And the surprised part is the stabilization. The outsole design is wide and stable. With the support of vamp, I think most of people should like this kind of foot feeling. The disadvantage is, the cushion is not so soft as the main current cushion technology. The light shoe body is also not suitable for the heavy players. But Curry 4 will be a good choice for the speed type full back and yare type players.
