It turns out dads actually do like Under Armour's 'Curry 2s'

Published Add your comment

Stephen Curry's season didn't end as many of us had imagined as the Golden State Warriors threw away a 3-1 series lead against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The two-time MVP's performances in the finals were far from perfect as he battled with injuries throughout the postseason and came up against a superhuman Kyrie Irving.

The release of his Under Armour shoes, the 'Curry 2s', did little to make him feel any better as they were mercilessly trolled online for looking like grandad shoes.

The trainers are said to be great for performance but their style does not really live up to your typical Jordans that are worn by sneaker fans across the world, as their popularity continues to grow.

However, there is a demographic that are fans of the design, although it may not be the fans Under Armour had hoped for.

GQ have recently released a video of dads giving their views on the trainers and, on the whole, it's quite a positive reaction.



Success breeds hatred and the point guard certainly has a lot of detractors following his back-to-back MVP seasons with the Warriors.

People are quick to jump on the anti-Curry bandwagon and he will have to come back fighting next season to show the doubter that he is indeed one of the league's best players.

The whole Golden State team need a comeback after their collapse against Cleveland, and Kevin Durant was certainly a start.
