Having your own shoe is a big deal to players in the NBA, but not many reach a level of notoriety to land their own signature label.
But Steph Curry may soon be on that level, with reports from Yahoo! Sports of the Goldon State Warrior landing his own brand with Under Armour.
Along with these rumors, the team reportedly uploaded a video of the three-time NBA championship practicing at the Warriors training facility wearing the Curry8 Flow sneaker, yet to launch, before quickly taking the video down.
But screenshots and screen recordings are forever, giving the world a sneak peak at what the kick, new logo and all, will look like.
