Stephen Curry Honors Wife Ayesha With ‘Seasoned Life’ Under Armour 3ZER0 Release

words & images // Nick DePaula:

During yet another of his many, many endorsement meetings earlier this past fall, Golden State Warriors franchise guard Stephen Curry got to escape marketing talk for a brief moment at his Bay Area home, and slip back into husband life.

“One sec guys,” said Curry, as he looked to his buzzing iPhone.

For Curry’s closest friends and associates, the upward facing red-cased screen flashed an ever-familiar, if not quirky contact: “First Name Baesis”

As he’s done for well over a decade during their relationship, Stephen dropped everything. His wife Ayesha was simply calling to check in for the day, from across the country in New York after a promotional appearance event. It’s a habit that’s long been a daily routine, as the two are often separated throughout the ongoing NBA calendar.

Between Stephen and the Warriors’ rockstar-level road trips this season, and Ayesha’s budding career as a Food Network cooking show host and best-selling cookbook author, the two experienced the busiest of their six years of marriage, as both of their respective careers continue to explode.

With the annual Mother’s Day holiday on the horizon this weekend, Stephen was secretly working months ahead with his sponsor Under Armour to create a special edition pair of sneakers honoring Ayesha and her recent accomplishments.

Inspired by her best-selling cookbook The Seasoned Life, his newest shoe with the brand drafts off of Ayesha’s book cover colors, with extensive detailing found throughout.

The Curry 3ZER0 model features a light grey upper, with a sharp orange tongue and bright green outsole, pulling from the cover’s grass and the book spine’s hits of hues. There’s also gold accents throughout, incorporating a similar metallic treatment found on the book’s author text.

Within the hardbound’s 256 pages are a collection of Ayesha’s 100 favorite recipes, including everything from simple smoothies to more nuanced dinners and festive cocktails. A series of utensils and food icons are also incorporated in simplified graphic fashion onto the shoe’s sockliner, and there’s an illustration of her outfitted in a chef’s hat on the heel for good measure.

Through the clear bottom, you’ll find “The Seasoned Life” in its custom cursive font type, with “CHEF” and “CURRY” atop the midfoot support shanks, a play off of one of Stephen’s nicknames that’s more fitted for Ayesha.

Of her many culinary concoctions, Stephen’s favorite – chicken parmesan – was purposefully left out of the book. “I’m keeping that to myself,” Ayesha has often joked at promotional appearances.

Without any clarity earlier in the week on the upcoming schedule for the Western Conference Finals, Stephen opted to debut the “Seasoned Life” sneaker on Tuesday during the series-clinching fourth game against the Utah Jazz.

As it turns out, the Warriors will now face the San Antonio Spurs indeed on Mother’s Day, providing yet another chance for Curry to honor his wife on the court.

As for the 3ZER0 sneaker itself, the design is an update to Stephen’s regular season Curry 3 model, with some insights from last year’s playoffs helping to fuel the direction. The shoe was built to not only be lighter, but also includes a dynamic collar for added support.

“We wanted to take his shoe, and in designing for the postseason, we wanted to make it a lighter version,” says designer Kort Neumann. “We started with a marathon shoe, and now we’re building a racing spike or a race car for a 2-month time period.”

While Curry typically sticks to a pretty strict palette of Warriors colors on the court, the special edition “Seasoned Life” shoes are a first of its kind in honoring his wife, and might get another exception to be worn as Golden State plays host to San Antonio.

The shoes will fittingly be releasing on Under Armour’s UA.com website this Sunday on Mother’s Day morning, and available in a full range of sizes to also accommodate women.

Air Jordan 8 Black/Red Reported to Release This Summer

Now that the first half of the year is quickly coming to a close, it’s safe to say that the Air Jordan 8 “Take Flight” is one of the better non-OG Air Jordans of the first six months. That, and the “Alternate” version of the shoe as well. Later this summer, the 1993 produced model will release in a Black/Red colorway.

Largely outfitted in black suede with matching leather overlays, a light infusion of red and medium grey hit the midsole and outer of this Chicago-inspired Air Jordan 8.

There are currently no release details for this upcoming drop, but stay tuned to Nice Kicks for more on the upcoming Air Jordan 8 Black/Red.

adidas Reveals 4D-Printed Futurecraft for Fall/Winter 2017 Release

When adidas first begin to dabble with 3D-printed sneakers in several years ago, the very thought of such an innovation almost seemed unthinkable. Fast forward to years later and the German-based brand is creating the future in modern times, now presenting their Futurecraft model with 4D printing technology.

Working in conjunction with Silicon Valley-based tech company Carbon, adidas creates the first performance footwear fueled by light and oxygen through a remarkable new process called Digital Light Synthesis. Carbon describes the innovative procedure as the use of digital light projection, oxygen-permeable optics, and programmable liquid resins to generate high-performance, durable polymeric products. The Futurecraft 4D is adidas’ initial application with Digital Light Synthesis, and a massive step in the direction athlete data-driven design and manufacturing.

Adidas will initially release 300 pairs of the Futurecraft 4D for friends and family only. They’ll follow that up with approximately 5,000 pairs during fall/winter 2017 season. Ultimately, with the scale and speed of Digital Light Synthesis, adidas plans to have more than 100,000 pairs in circulation by the end 2018.
