Do we have another "Chef" Curry debacle on our hands? The official NBA Twitter just posted the above image of Steph Curry's shoes from Wednesday's NBA Finals practice, and the tweet's replies are already flooded with people mocking the Curry 2.5.
There's no doubt that Under Armour's had some trouble convincing the public that its sneakers look good on-feet, but this instance of Steph Curry sneaker slander feels more like a reflex of the internet hivemind, which has now decided that deriding the shoes is a "thing," than a real reflection of their appearance. The shoe certainly has its supporters on social media–the original tweet does have over 1,000 likes at the time of writing.
But, who are we to get in the way of people trying to get their jokes off? Below is a handful of Twitter users who are going in on Curry's latest.
