Curry 6 Colorway Pays Homage to Retro Warriors Jerseys from Stephen's Rookie Season

Ten years ago, Stephen Curry was an overlooked rookie taking to the court in a now-retro, yet bold navy and orange Warriors jersey. The team re-branded in 2010, and within a few years the Warriors’ Bay Bridge logo became synonymous with one of the greatest teams in NBA history.

2009 is where we started. We had the jerseys from back in the day. We wanted to tie in that part of Warrior history. Those were lonely days, winning maybe 23 games that year, but it reminds me of where we came from... this colorway is about humble beginnings.

Stephen Curry was always underrated. No one thought he would lead his Queensway Christian College middle school basketball team to an undefeated season, but he did. Few expected the then 5-foot-7 Stephen to lead his Charlotte Christian School team to three conference titles and three state playoff appearances, but he did. And no one predicted that Stephen would begin breaking scoring records as a Davidson freshman in 2007, but he did.

Today, Stephen Curry is a three-time NBA champion, two-time MVP and six-time NBA All-Star. He recently launched The Underrated Tour Powered by Rakuten, to give unsigned high school players rated three stars and below a chance to shine for scouts. The Curry 6 Underrated colorway is a celebration of the nights Stephen donned the throwback Warriors colors during his rookie season - right before he took on the doubters and became Mr. Ruin the Game.

This Curry 6 echoes the original Warriors jersey with a navy full knit breathable upper and orange accents at the lacing system. The Curry 6 is Stephen’s first shoe to utilize a full-length HOVR midsole and it provides him with the explosive return he needs to keep breaking records. The full-length speed plate underfoot keeps Curry on the balls of his feet, enabling him to blow past the league’s best defenders, while the split outsole design increases court contact for incredible traction.

The Curry 6 Underrated colorway releases worldwide on UA.com, at UA Brand Houses and at select retail partners for $130 USD on February 1, 2019. Limited pairs of the new colorway will be available beginning January 25, exclusively at the SC30 x Oakland pop up shop located at 472 9th Street in downtown Oakland. The pop-up is open 12-7 pm PT Friday through Sunday and on the Warriors' home game days.
