Curry making the most of his moon landing conspiracy joke.
Golden State Warriors All-Star Stephen Curry is using all the publicity created by his "moon landing conspiracy" comments and putting it to good use.
Prior to Thursday night's nationally televised game against the Houston Rockets, Curry laced up a "Moon Landing" colorway of his Under Armour Curry 6 signature sneaker, designed by well-known customizer Dan Gamache aka Mache.
Following the game, Curry autographed the kicks and will soon be auctioning them off to benefit local STEM education programs in the Bay Area, providing young students with more knowledge about science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
According to ESPN's Nick DePaula, the special edition Curry 6s will be auctioned on eBay, through a collaboration between DonorsChoose.org and the Stephen and Ayesha Curry Family Foundation. The bidding will open on January 6 and run through to January 13.
Curry, who recently joked that astronauts never really landed on the moon, has since confirmed that he was just messing around and has excepted and invitation to tour NASA's Johnson Center when the Warriors visit Houston in March.
