Steph Curry‘s birthday fell on the geekiest holiday of them all, March 14th or “Pi Day” (March 14th = 3/14 and pi = 3.14… Get it?)
The inspiration of “squaring the circle” is seen in the on the circular construction framing the 90-degree angle of the foot and 3.14.18 printed on the lace aglets and the numbers of pi on the sole and shoe box.
There are containment areas in the forefoot lateral wall and a heel lock in the foot to let Curry play on his toes.
Under Armour claims the sneakers were designed, “to continue helping Stephen achieve the impossible on court”…impossible like finding the last digit of pi.
The Under Armour Curry 5 went for $130, but the release was limited to 314 pairs (another pi pun!) so they sold out fast.
Expect them to go up on re-sellers for much more.
