Under Armour and Stephen Curry will celebrate Chinese New Year this January with a special Curry 7 colorway that honors one of the world’s oldest continuous artistic traditions – water color painting.
The latest release, the Curry 7 Chinese New Year, was inspired by the classic style of Chinese painting, or guóhuà. The colorway offers fans a pop of rich color against neutral gray tones and an artistic blend of vibrant peony blooms. It was designed to commemorate new beginnings, both on and off the court.
The Curry 7 Chinese New Year colorway features a Grey-on-Grey upper comprised of several layered materials. An original floral pattern—inspired by Chinese shui-mo ink and wash painting—elevates the shoe’s back panel and a Golden, flexible plate helps augment its white heel. The plate also separates the shoe’s UA HOVR and Micro G cushioning technologies, which effectively combine to allow for an explosive first step and sharp cuts.
Look for the UA Curry 7 “Chinese New Year” to release on January 10th at select retailers and UA.com. The retail price tag is set at $140 USD.
