The Curry 6 features Under Armour’s full length HOVR cushioning system and pays homage to the Fox Theater for its first colorway. Its neon green outsole and orange midsole on an all-black exterior represents the theater’s iconic marquee when lit up at night.
The story of the Fox Theater and the Golden State Warriors are similar in that both organizations have had a rough past but are now enjoying a renaissance. In 2009, the theater reopened its doors to the public after years of neglect and now holds a multi-functional space that includes a restaurant, the Oakland School for the Arts, and serves as a live concert venue. Coincidentally, 2009 was also when the Golden State Warriors drafted a then-21-year-old Curry, who would reinvigorate the franchise and eventually lead it to a championship in 2015, their first in 40 years. Two more would follow soon after that.
The Curry 6 “Fox Theater” releases worldwide for $130 on January 4, 2019.
