Posted in Unspecified

On the basketball court, Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry's playing style has been described as "flashy." But his new shoes released Thursday aren't getting the same reviews. The "bland" or "vanilla" style of Under Armour's Curry Two Low shoes (with the "Chef" colorway) have become a growing topic on social media, as sneakerheads have blasted them to the point that the poor fashion reception may do more for sales than no reception at all. buy basketball sneakers online Saying Twitter has had a field day with Under Armour's latest Stephen Curry sneaker drop would be an understatement. The red-hot athletic brand recently released the "Chef Curry" version of the Curry 2 Low shoes, which quickly set the Internet ablaze for their lack of, well, cool factor. Mostly white with grey Under Armour branding, the sneakers look great for a nurse that has a sense of style or a grandfather who isn't consumed with death and still wants to dress 20 years younger. stephen curry 2 australia The fact the sneakers have become an Internet sensation will make either party -- grandfather or nurse -- seem cool should they plunk down the $120 to buy the sneakers at the store. Think about the Instagram cred just waiting in the wings for a tech savvy, 40-year-old father of two.Nevertheless, we got up and close and personal with the Chef Curry sneaks to see if social media was right in their ridicule. There were both positives and negatives after spending time proudly rocking the sneakers throughout the office.On the positive side, they aren't as ugly as the pictures floating around the internet imply. The shoes don perforated holes all over, which serves up a bit of cool factor and certainly dresses up a jeans and button down shirt look. In other words, they are OK to wear into the increasingly business casual office setting -- one shouldn't fear being dissed by co-workers. basketball shoes sale australia Second, the shoes are easy to slip on and off, which is great for people on the go that, say, travel a lot and have to pass through security. And hey, they are actually pretty comfortable (great for grandfathers) due to Under Armour's heavy use of cushioning throughout.On the downside is the chunky aggressive sole and plastic around the heel, which cheapens the appearance of a sneaker that costs $120. There were mixed emotions on a quote reading "I can do all things" emblazoned on the side of the sneaker. Some thought it was a nice touch of inspirational wisdom to be photographed and shared on social media, others thought it was cheesy
