It has been awhile since most of us have thought about those ugly ass Stephen Curry Under Armour shoes that were released earlier this summer, but because they are, arguably, the nastiest shoes a superstar athlete has ever endorsed, they just keep being talked about.
For those who may have forgotten, Steph’s ‘Curry 2 Low’ got mocked by everyone for looking like the most classic dad shoe on the planet. Plain white with a boring design, Jimmy Kimmel broke them down perfectly with one of his skits, and now GQ mag hit the streets to see what dads really think about them.
The reactions are absolutely priceless, with one guy saying he's wear them "everywhere" and another admitting that he'd even try pairing them "with a suit" because, hell, "why not?"
For as much mockery as they've gotten, the two-time reigning NBA MVP has been a good sport about it all, refusing to back down from his stance that they look good.

Still, even as fellow NBA All-Star James Harden's new shoes have gotten roasted for the way they look, Steph Curry's "Curry 2 Low" remain the benchmark for ugly athlete shoes—well, unless you're a dad who's planning on doing some yard work this weekend.
