The Under Armour Curry 6 Coy Fish Is Inspired One Of Stephen Curry’s College Pranks

Under Armour has unveiled Stephen Curry’s 2019 All-Star sneaker as we bring you an official look at what is being known as the Under Armour Curry 6 Coy Fish.

Inspired by Stephen’s prankster personality, the Under Armour Curry 6 Coy Fish traces back to a specific prank that Steph pulled while at Davidson College in North Carolina. This particular prank occurred during Stephen’s junior year, while he was out with his teammates on his 21st birthday.

“We went to a little Japanese steakhouse to celebrate, and decisions were made to jump in the koi fish pond at the restaurant. I was the decoy distracting the hostess while Steve [Rossiter] jumped in and tried to grab one of the fish.”
– Stephen Curry
As Rossiter worked to nab a koi fish from the restaurant pond, Curry distracted the hostess. Unfortunately for them, a security camera caught all the action. A videotape from the restaurant made its way to Davidson College men’s basketball head coach Bob McKillop a week later.

The Curry 6 Coy Fish colorway, homophone intended, tells the origin story of a prankster as he returns to his home in Charlotte for the 2019 All-Star Game. This striking colorway is a nod to the vibrant beauty of the koi fish, featuring a bright yellow fully knit upper, a full-length HOVR midsole and a water-like clear outsole for best-in-class traction.

To celebrate the 2019 NBA All-Star Game, the Under Armour Curry 6 Coy Fish colorway will drop in limited pairs at the Armoury at Champs Sports in the Carolina Place Mall in Pineville, NC on February 13 beginning at 4:30 pm ET.

It releases broadly on, at UA Brand Houses and at select retail partners for $130 USD on February 15, 2019. Limited pairs will also be available at the SC30 x Oakland pop-up shop located at 472 9th Street in downtown Oakland on the same day. The pop-up is open Friday-through-Sunday, and when the Golden State Warriors host a home game, from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m.
