Stephen Curry’s Latest Shoes Pay Homage To Oracle Arena

The Golden State Warriors pay tribute to Oracle Arena and Oakland. The latest tribute came from Warriors guard Stephen Curry and Under Armour. It’s the g with which Curry has an endorsement deal.

Under Armour confirmed that they will release an edition of the Curry 6 shoes inspired by oracle Arena. It’s the place where Curry played basketball for the Golden State during the first decade of his professional career.

The Warriors called Oracle and Oakland home for 47 years, and they will move to San Francisco next year where they’ll rock the Chase Center.

The “Curry 6 Roaracle colorways” are already causing reactions. In 2017, the Warriors received the Best Home Court advantage award from the NBA Players Association during the Players Voice Awards.

Curry’s new shoes are bright red which is definitely a nod to the red lettering of Oracle Arena signage, and also have lime green bottoms. There are many cool features of the shoes such as the decibel meters on the tongue and in the arch. Under Armour said this feature was “inspired by the thundering decibel levels of Oracle Arena, and a nod to the support of Dub Nation that is found across the world.”

Stephen himself has shared that the thunderous chants and cheers at Roaracle created an energy that fueled him every game day. No matter whether the team was up or down, and particularly during their final bow at Oracle Arena during the 2018-2019 season, the fan love was strong. This loyalty and ongoing support never wavered over the past 10 years for Stephen, and it is Dub Nation all around the world that he is celebrating with the introduction of the Curry 6 Roaracle colorway.”

The red shoes are part of the round of goodbyes at the Warriors’ end in Oakland. East Bay’s great rappers played halftime at the final game at Oracle Arena, and the Warriors organization made rally towels that paid tribute to Oakland and Kevin Durant. Ayesha Curry also penned a touching farewell to the arena and its fans.

In January, Under Armour released a version that was designed after Oakland’s Fox Theater.
