Professional athletes sign shoe deals with companies, like Nike, Reebok, Under Armour, Adidas; all the time. But every now and then, the shoe doesn’t look very appealing. Steph Curry is the latest victim. His new shoe was recently released by Under Armour and it didn’t get too many high reviews.
Let’s check what Twitter had to say.

I've never seen a shoe company treat their biggest star to so many trash ass shoes like Under Armour treats Steph Curry. pic.twitter.com/1l67SYwzdl

I personally am a fan of Nike when it comes to shoes. To quote the famous philosopher Boobie Miles from Friday Night Lights "God made black beautiful. God made Boobie beautiful. And when I knock someone out, I'm gonna knock 'em out in Nikes and I'm gonna smile while I do it." Maybe Steph Curry just needs to get himself a pair of Nikes.
