Curry to wear "My Brother's Keeper" Curry 4s tonight in D.C.
Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors will take on the Washington Wizards in D.C. tonight, just one day removed from their trip to the African American Museum of Natural History.
In celebration of the Warriors' lone trip to the nation's capital this season, Curry has partnered with Barack Obama's My Brother's Keeper Alliance for a special edition colorway of the Under Armour Curry 4 which he will debut on the court tonight.
The sneakers were designed by Dez Customz and Kreative Custom Kicks in tandem with the foundation, according to ESPN's Nick DePaula. The Curry 4s feature a black to white fade with hits of gold throughout, symbolizing togetherness and achievement. Additionally, the kicks include My Brother's Keeper Alliance's wordmark and logo along the ankle collar, and one of Barack Obama's memorable quotes from his last MBK National Summit speech while in office.
Curry shared a video on IG moments ago in which he gave a preview of the kicks and revealed that he'll be auctioning them off after tonight's game with the proceeds going to support of the MBK.
"The inspiration for the shoe I’ll be playing in today is every boy and young man of color in this country that need to know they matter - to their communities, their country, to me. Four years ago this week, the @mbk_alliance was created to reduce barriers and expand opportunity so nothing stands in the way of everyone achieving their biggest dreams. I've been proud to be part of that mission from day one, and I'll never stop being my brothers' keeper. I will auction these shoes and donate the proceeds in support of this critical movement.

Warriors vs Wizards is scheduled to tip off at 8pm ET tonight. You can catch the game on ESPN.
