Official images of the Under Armour Curry 2.5 Journey to Excellence Pack is unveiled, as it celebrates Steph Curry’s second annual summer tour in China, beginning tomorrow, September 2nd.
Consisting of two pairs, the sneakers are inspired by the main characters from the Chinese novel — Journey to the West, Sun Wukong and Erlang Shen.
The Sun Wukong edition flaunts a vibrant palette highlighted by yellow and red tones, to evoke a hero’s ability to overcome all obstacles, via great power that is often underestimated, just like Steph.
The Erlang Shen colorway is dipped in white/blue/black with red accents, and essentially a calmer variation that places an emphasis on focus and the vision to see all possibilities on the court.
Each retailing for $135, you can find the exclusive pack at select UA retailers today, while more stockists and its online shop will release the pairs starting this Saturday, September 3.
The theme is pretty cool and the design has been executed well on the silhouettes. I’ll side with the Sun Wukong pair because of the colorway, but, both pairs are solid options overall.
