Under Armour is cooking up the Curry 2.5 China Edition in honor of Steph’s visit to china in early September. The shoe is inspired by a popular Chinese novel” journey to the West” published in the 16th century. The shoes draw their colors from some of the key characters in the novel ( the monkey king aka Sun Wukong and Earlang); looking close enough at the side panels of the sneakers, one can recognize the chinese theatrical artistic masks worn by performing actors at the operas.
UA did not sacrifice performance with these curry 2.5 China edition. similar to the all the previous curry 2.5, this edition will have the following features:
ANKLE SUPPORT/LOCKDOWN FIT/COMFORT:
Synthetic upper that wraps closely around the foot for a lightweight and precise fit. It also has an external shell that provides durable support and structure; UA furthermore equipped these shoes with an external shank and a heel counter to eliminate sliding and provide locked in stability.
The anti -friction cloth reduces heat to provide more energy and the keep the feet cooler. UA full length cushioning midsole absorbs impact and converts it into a responsive burst and enhance speed. The Multi-directional Organic Herringbone outsole offers maximum floor control and grip.
Curry 2.5 Monkey King Edition:
Curry 2.5 Earlang Edition:
These will only be released in China and I don’t even think of them being accessible to the general public. UA might release them in the near future stateside so stay tuned for additional information.
