It’s hard to believe it now but at one point, Wardell Stephen Curry was under-recruited, underappreciated, and under scrutiny for lingering ankle injuries. Three NBA championships, two consecutive MVP awards, and six signature Steph Curry shoes later and there’s little debate that the long-distance killer is in the upper echelon of NBA super-stardom. Steph is already one of the best shooters in NBA history and simply a highlight machine.
For the early years, ankle issues prevented Curry from reaching his potential. Switching from Nike to Under Armour allowed Steph to ask for a supportive shoe that best matched his needs. The increased voice in his own signature shoes (alongside the Zamst ankle brace he started wearing) helped Steph reach his full potential.
The Curry signature sneakers indicate his need for ankle support. Of course, Steph didn’t always wear UA shoes. We’re here to walk you through Curry’s best highlights, with the shoes he rocked during these spectacular moments.
