Under Armour has today introduced a special edition Curry 6 that will be releasing during the NBA All Star festivities this upcoming weekend in Curry's home state of North Carolina.

The sneakers reference Curry's inner prankster, and how a dare at a Japanese steakhouse on his 21st birthday came back to bite him, and his Davidson teammates, in the ass.

"We went to a little Japanese steakhouse to celebrate, and decisions were made to jump in the koi fish pond at the restaurant. I was the decoy distracting the hostess while Steve [Rossiter] jumped in and tried to grab one of the fish," Steph says, per Under Armour.

However, security cameras caught it all, and the footage eventually made its way to Davidson College men's basketball head coach Bob McKillop a week later.

"We were in the gym running sprints for a good two hours," said Stephen. "And then we had to go back to the steakhouse and stay at the front door for four hours as greeters!"

Inspired by those events, the Curry 6 "Coy Fish" colorway, homophone intended, is a nod to the vibrant beauty of the koi fish, featuring a bright yellow fully knit upper, a full-length HOVR midsole and a water-like clear outsole for best-in-class traction. 

The kicks will drop in limited pairs at the Armour at Champs Sports in the Carolina Place Mall in Pineville, NC on February 13 beginning at 4:30 pm ET. It releases broadly on UA.com, at UA Brand Houses and at select retail partners for $130 on February 15.
