Welcome to my review of the Under Armour Curry 2 Low! First of all, there’s a Mid Top version of the shoe, so if you’re more into that, check the review out. If not, continue.
The low version promises some tweaks to the shoe. As usual, I’ll cover the tech, performance, comfort, materials and price aspects. This will help you decide which version of the shoe suits you best. Let’s start the Under Armour Curry 2 Low review!

Charged – this is the shoe’s cushion setup. If you’re not familiar with it, it’s basically a great setup for a quick guard who needs lots of responsiveness and court feel.
SpeedForm – this is the shoe’s main component of the upper material. It’s a synthetic and there’s also some Fuse to reinforce it.
This is easily the shoe’s strongest aspect. Mostly thanks to the awesome SpeedForm upper, it pretty much fits like a glove. Super pleasant on the foot, pretty breathable and lightweight.
Their cushion is stable and comfortable too, so they won’t slow you down on movements. They fit true to size. One thing worth mentioning, there is a slight feel of wobbliness from time to time. It isn’t bad though, I wouldn’t worry about it.
Cushion feels identical to the Mid – very responsive, energetic and provides a lot of court feel. If you like these light guard setups, then this the premium example. Don’t expect a lot of impact protection or bounce – Charged isn’t made for that. All in all, I had zero complaints here.
Once again, just awesome as the Mid. Super aggressive herringbone traction pattern which grips the floor very well.
The pattern is a bit dense, so wiping will be needed from time to time. And just because of the softness of the rubber, these aren’t too good for outdoors. They would grip the court well but wouldn’t last long.
This is where I feel that things could have been done a bit better. The #1 reason why support feels a little weak is the loose feel of the shoe and pretty much no heel support.
I don’t even think I could feel a heel counter in there. Basically, it’s not a BAD setup, but if you need strong and snug support, you won’t get that from these.
I loved the material changes from the Mid to Low. The shoe features full-on SpeedForm, which is a synthethic type of material. It kinda feels like a stronger knit, but it’s different.
All you need to know that it’s super comfortable. And then there’s some Fuse on the front for durability. A great setup overall.
PRICE VS. QUALITY
These are actually $10 cheaper than the Mid, which I approve. They don’t have a whole bunch of tech, but they do have an awesome material setup and good overall performance.
For $130 at retail, I think this is definitely a solid deal. There better ones out there, but QUALITY wins this one.
I think this actually is a slight improvement from the Mid in most areas, though support is a bit of a disappointment.
Comfort is awesome, cushion is great for a guard, traction is great, support somewhat does the job but could have been better and materials are extremely good.
I would recommend this over the mid version IF you like lows and know the experience.
+ Very comfortable and pleasant to wear
+ Responsive guard’s cushion setup
+ Great traction
– Support is a bit weak
– Almost no heel support
