Under Armour has unveiled Stephen Curry’s 2019 All-Star sneaker as we bring you an official look at what is being known as the Under Armour Curry 6 Coy Fish.
Inspired by Stephen’s prankster personality, the Under Armour Curry 6 Coy Fish traces back to a specific prank that Steph pulled while at Davidson College in North Carolina. This particular prank occurred during Stephen’s junior year, while he was out with his teammates on his 21st birthday.“We went to a little Japanese steakhouse to celebrate, and decisions were made to jump in the koi fish pond at the restaurant. I was the decoy distracting the hostess while Steve [Rossiter] jumped in and tried to grab one of the fish.” – Stephen Curry As Rossiter worked to nab a koi fish from the restaurant pond, Curry distracted the hostess. Unfortunately for them, a security camera caught all the action. A videotape from the restaurant made its way to Davidson College men’s basketball head coach Bob McKillop a week later.
The Curry 6 Coy Fish colorway, homophone intended, tells the origin story of a prankster as he returns to his home in Charlotte for the 2019 All-Star Game. This striking colorway is a nod to the vibrant beauty of the koi fish, featuring a bright yellow fully knit upper, a full-length HOVR midsole and a water-like clear outsole for best-in-class traction.
