PROS:
  • Very stable and supportive
CONS:
  • Very specific fit
  • Inconsistent traction
Summary of 6 Expert Reviews:
The reviews of the Under Armour Curry 5 are almost unanimously bad. The majority of reviewers complain about bad blisters on the medial side of their feet and a painful lacing system. The traction is also very inconsistent as the translucent traction pattern is a real dust collector and difficult to wipe. Cushioning is still very responsive with minimal impact protection like we are used to from the Curry line.
Overall, the Under Armour Curry 5 is a big disappointment and probably the worst shoe of the Curry signature line.

Expert Reviews of the Under Armour Curry 5:

8.8
The Sole Brothers
I love playing in the Curry 5. This shoe excelled in every single category. Sole Brothers recommended, just not on dusty courts.
8
The Curry 5 is what I call a pretty average shoe with some minor flaws and poor dusty floor traction performance.
7.4
NightWing2303 [weartesters.com]
The Curry 5 is simply not a shoe I can recommend. Traction is very inconsistent, and the fit is horrendous.
7.4
RicheeKim
The Curry 5 is the worst Curry model I have played in. Stay away from this shoe if you don't have narrow feet!

I am really confused how this shoe got by the initial testing phase. The fit of the Curry 5 is way too specific and doesn't work for me at all.
6.6
Duke4005 [weartesters.com]
I cannot recommend the Curry 5 to a player of any position or size.

Traction of the Under Armour Curry 5

8
The Sole Brothers
Great on clean courts but the Curry 5 picks up dust like crazy. You have to wipe really hard to get off the dust too.
8
On dusty floors though, wiping wasn’t just necessary, it was REQUIRED.

This is the worst traction I have ever experienced in a Curry model. This is a real dust collector.

The Curry 5 picked up every bit of dust and took it home.

Cushion of the Under Armour Curry 5

8.5
RicheeKim
Great court feel but very little impact protection.
8
JAHRONMON [Youtube]
I was pleasantly surprised by the cushioning setup. More impact protection and a little bit of bounce-back.
7
The Sole Brothers
Cushioning is very minimal and responsive.
7
EVUA is back and is still boring like the Curry 4 set up although it feels slightly firmer and snoozier to me.
7
NightWing2303 [weartesters.com]
Cushioning is minimal.
7
Duke4005 [weartesters.com]
Dense EVA foam gives no real feel of impact protection or energy feedback.

Anafoam is a great material.

Anafoam is back and feels great!

RicheeKim
The one-bootie knit upper feels very nice, the rest of the materials are pretty basic.
8
Materials break in with play, but start out stiff.
7
JAHRONMON [Youtube]
The upper doesn't feel like Anafoam and wasn't very comfortable on the top of my feet.

Support of the Under Armour Curry 5

Wide base, and good lockdown.

Compared to the Curry 4 this shoe is slightly more stable with similar support.

No side-to-side movement and the heel is locked in place.

Good midfoot support but the heel slip was terrible.

Fit of the Under Armour Curry 5

The Sole Brothers
The fit was very comfortable.

The fit is horrendous. Painfully horrendous.

The arch kept digging into my feet causing pain and blisters.
5
JAHRONMON [Youtube]
I had terrible blisters on the medial side of my arch.

Duke4005 [weartesters.com]
Anafoam is too soft to keep your heels locked in and the lacing system hurts if you lace it too tight.

Is Outdoor Use Recommended?

fair
The Sole Brothers
Outdoor use you should be okay because the rubber is hard and the traction pattern is deep.
