While Jordan Brand and Nike athletes are honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with all-black sneakers today, Stephen Curry will be honoring a present-day leader on the court. As President Barack Obama's time at the White House comes to an end, Stephen Curry will be celebrating his back to back terms in office with player exclusive Under Armour Curry 3s.
Curry took to social media to unveil the special sneakers that he's wearing on-court against the Cleveland Cavaliers tonight.
The Under Armour Curry 3 "Obama Back 2 Back Terms" features a blue upper, white midsole and translucent red outsole. Gold speckles are found throughout the upper and the Seal of the President of the United States is incorporated on the tongue. Obama signature can been seen through the out sole. The term "BACK2BACK" is also featured on the bottom. While Curry has used the term before to represent his consecutive MVP awards, its used to represent Obama's two terms in office.
The sneaker is likely to remain a PE, but Obama is known for hooping in Under Armour sneakers. Hopefully the brand set aside a pair for his after Presidency pick-up games.
