I love reading stories like this. Where the sneakers and sports culture are able to help people when they’re in need. Lets carry this good energy and move it forward into 2017, sneaker lovers unite!
SOURCE WRITES: Under Armour and Steph Curry are using sneakers to lend their support to victims of the deadly fire at the Ghost Ship, the artist collective warehouse in Oakland where a fire broke out on Dec. 2, killing 36. Under Armour is selling two pairs of custom Curry sneakers dedicated to the victims on eBay, with proceeds going to the YouCaring Oakland Fire Relief fund.
The sneakers, an Under Armour Curry 3 and Under Armour Curry 3 Low, feature initials of the victims and graphics referencing the Ghost Ship and the Oakland community. Bidding for each is over $10,000 at the time of writing.
These sneakers were worn and signed by Steph Curry—the Low in a pregame warmup and the proper Curry 3 during a game on Dec. 15.
