Under Armour Curry 6 SL Golf Shoes
Steph Curry fans love how the flashy point guard can scorch opposing teams with his blistering treys. However, only die-hard followers know that Curry is also passionate about the game of golf. This is, after all, Curry’s favorite hobby. UnderArmour pays homage to the NBA star’s golfing passion with the Curry 6 SL.
The UA golf shoes marry both games’ most iconic footwear technologies. The upper features the knit construction of the Curry 6. The midsole-outsole interface comes with the Golf Rotational Resistance technology from UnderArmour. The fusion creates a golf shoe that hugs the fairways from the moment you strike the 1st hole up to teeing the 18th.
The knit upper provides the comfort that golfers need as they head down the greens. It can help them keep their focus on landing a birdie or an eagle. It comes with the Ortholite X40 sockliner that features antimicrobial properties. It’s the same technology that eliminates nasty odors coming from sweaty feet.
The real gem in the Curry 6 SL is the outsole. While it does have lugs that protrude from the outsole, they are not as large as the spikes in a soccer shoe. UnderArmour calls them spikeless; although they still create protrusions. These protrusions help improve the stability of the feet on the fairways. The design of the protrusions also helps make sure that it retains its 11-ounce lightweight characteristics. This will not affect the traction it has on the ground.
The Curry 6 SL also comes with a lightweight EVA midsole that runs the whole length of the shoe. It offers responsiveness that is almost similar to curry’s basketball sneakers.
The UnderArmour Curry 6 SL draws inspiration from the NBA star’s basketball sneakers. It also incorporates critical elements of a professional golf footwear for improved performance on the greens.
