Under Armour and Stephen Curry will celebrate Chinese New Year this January with a special Curry 7 colorway that honors one of the world’s oldest continuous artistic traditions – watercolor painting.
The latest release, the Under Armour Curry 7 ‘Chinese New Year’, was inspired by the classic style of Chinese painting, or guóhuà. The colorway offers fans a pop of rich color against neutral gray tones and an artistic blend of vibrant peony blooms. It was designed to commemorate new beginnings, both on and off the court.
The Curry 7 ‘Chinese New Year’ colorway features a gray on gray upper comprised of several layered materials. An original floral pattern—inspired by Chinese shui-mo ink and wash painting—elevates the shoe’s back panel and a golden, flexible plate helps augment its white heel. The plate also separates the shoe’s UA HOVR™ and Micro G® cushioning technologies, which effectively combine to allow for an explosive first step and sharp cuts.
The Under Armour Curry 7 ‘Chinese New Year’ colorway will be released globally on UA.com, at UA Brand Houses and at select retail partners for $140 USD on Friday, January 10th, 2020. Limited pairs of the new colorway will also be made available for pre-release beginning January 8, exclusively at the SC30 product wall within the Chase Center Warriors Shop at Thrive City in San Francisco.
