Full Review - UA Curry 6

Chef Curry is cooking again in the shoe game. This time, the sixth iteration of his signature shoe is here to give you incredible traction and performance. Time flies quickly, friends. It’s hard to believe that we are already on the Curry 6. But here we are. And here’s what is has to offer you:

True to Size


It is nearly impossible to beat the incredible bite of the Curry 2’s traction pattern. However, the all-new Curry 6 is a close second.

It sports a circular traction pattern on the lateral side for unrivaled multi-directional grip. Dust is not a factor in these shoes.

Interestingly, the traction on these shoes does a bit more than grip the court. It actually tells a story. The unique cross-hatched pattern is inspired by the stucco on Curry’s childhood home in Charlotte. That’s right, you’re wearing history on your feet.


The Curry shoe, no matter what model, is known for its signature traction and support. The Curry 6 is no exception. Its base is fairly wide and flat for great stability.

Meanwhile, flex grooves are carved into the outsole to promote natural motion. An extended lateral section acts an outrigger while a TPU support place (called a speed plate by UA) acts as another full-length outrigger without restricting mobility. This is a really unique solution that adds great support.


From heel to toe, knit is the primary material. It is complimented by some fuse overlays in high-wear areas like the toe and eyelets.

After a short break-in process, you’ll really love the feel of these shoes.

The knit offers a great balance of flex and strength.

On the negative side, some testers found the traction was peeling off pretty quickly just from playing indoors.  So, we cannot recommend these from a materials standpoint.  These will not hold up on an outdoor court.


Under Armor chose to implement their proprietary HOVR cushioning in the full-length of this shoe and in the entire midsole.

It is slightly more subdued than the cushion of the same name in their line of running shoes. You’ll have plenty of court feel but also enough cushion to comfortably play for hours.

For cushion lovers that have been turned off by past models’ lack of comfort, the Curry 6 is a long-awaited cloud to step on.

Sole Decision

We expect nothing less than tremendous performance in all aspects in a Curry shoe.

The new Curry 6 does not disappoint.

Excellent traction, support, and newly upgraded cushion make this a shoe every quick player needs.
