Chef, TV personality and Stephen Curry’s number one, the list to describe “mompreneur” Ayesha Curry is endless. As a mother of three with her own cooking show, cookbook, restaurant and a multitude of brand collaborations, Ayesha maintains balance in her life through her passion for food. 

At a young age, Ayesha realized the importance of the family time that took place at the dinner table. The connections between youngest and oldest, learning about and strengthening each other, all centered around food.  

Beginning with her first blog, Little Lights of Mine in 2014, Ayesha began to tirelessly document and perfect her home cooking projects. As her personality shined and her cooking blossomed, the blog became a powerhouse, leading to appearances on the Rachael Ray ShowGood Morning America and many more. To better connect with the hundreds of thousands that already adored her recipes and approach to family cooking, Ayesha secured her own Food Network show, Ayesha’s Home Kitchen, which became a hit for the network.

Creating a new recipe can be a process of trial and error, one that often takes time to perfect. However, with curiosity and passion, the creation of a recipe becomes much more than a task, but a journey. Ayesha's journey has led to her latest endeavor as a restaurateur, opening International Smoke in collaboration with Chef Michael Mina, first in San Francisco and now with another location in Houston.

Now, Under Armour and Stephen are celebrating Ayesha’s triumphs with a new colorway of the Curry 5, named after Ayesha’s restaurant. For Stephen, International Smoke is more than one of his favorite places to eat; it’s a representation of his wife’s dedication, and a celebration of female entrepreneurs around the world.

The grey and black hues featured on the upper and the knit tongue are inspired by the styles of cooking International Smoke's menu focuses on, American and international barbecue, both of which use fire and smoke. The Curry 5 International Smoke colorway will be available for $130 USD on UA.com, at UA Brand Houses and select retailers on November 16th.
