For the second year in a row, Stephen Curry will take the court on his birthday in fashion, with a player exclusive themed pair from Under Armour just for the occasion.
After wearing a birthday PE of the Anatomix Spawn last year, his first season with Under Amour Basketball, Curry will be rocking this custom variation of his own signature shoe, the Curry One, tonight at Oracle Arena in front of Dub Nation.
Dubbed the “Splash Party” Curry One, the white confetti glow-in-the-dark base upper features festive hits throughout the shoe, like a confetti speckled midsole and sockliner, as well as additional glow-in-the-dark logo hits on the ankle and tongue. The “330” and “510” lace tips represent his Akron, OH birthplace and his current Oakland, CA area code.
His March 14th birthday can be seen celebrated on the tongue lace loop with custom “3|14” detailing, and you’ll even notice printed sockliner graphics featuring the “Surprise Party” theme. Just like his “BHM” PE, the shoe also features a gleaming true chrome heel counter.
Check out Stephen’s size 12.5 pair below in detail, given to Curry with confetti and a Splash Party invite in the box.
