Stephen Curry's New Sneakers Are Getting Ruthlessly Mocked on Twitter

Posted on

On the basketball court, it seems as though there’s nothing Stephen Curry can’t do. Despite being just 6’3″ (which in the basketball world is basically equivalent to being 5’3″), Curry has proven to be a formidable opponent whether he’s at the three-point line or playing defense, all of which went into him being named the NBA’s first unanimous Most Valuable Player. But there’s one more thing every person appears to unanimously agree upon when it comes to Steph, and that’s mocking his latest sneaker design.

Like any basketball player worth his free throw, Curry has a sneaker contract with Under Armour, releasing shoes that have generally been met with a warm reception from his fans. But his latest launch has unleashed a viral meme that just keeps on giving. On Thursday, Under Armour released images of the new color way of his sneaker called the Curry 2 Low
“Chef,” named after one of his nicknames on the court. But the thick-soled all-white shoe has quickly garnered comparisons to the types of orthopedic footwear that can be found in your grandparent’s closet.

Who knew Twitter was full of so many burgeoning roast comics? (Oh wait, we all did.) One things for sure, Michael Jordan and LeBron James are going to sleep like babies tonight, knowing that while Steph may be coming for their GOAT titles on the court, their reigns as sneaker kings remain uncontested.
