Steph Curry’s purple playoff shoes are becoming legendary

Phife Dawg wouldn’t even have to ask. Steph Curry can kick it. Yes, he can.

The Warriors superstar put on a performance for the ages in Friday night’s 107-97 win at The Boston Garden, when he was getting “M-V-P!” chants by the end of it. As he was picking apart the Celtics defense en route to 43 mesmerizing points, Curry sported the same purple kicks that are becoming legendary this postseason.

The Warriors superstar put on a performance for the ages in Friday night’s 107-97 win at The Boston Garden, when he was getting “M-V-P!” chants by the end of it.

Is he rocking violet velour?

The kicks made their postseason debut during Game 3 of the Memphis Grizzlies series in the Western Conference Semifinals. Steph dropped 30 points and the Warriors won by 30. If you’re superstitious, that’s a good omen for No. 30 right there.

Then came The Great Shoe Swap in Game 4 against the Grizzlies.

Curry initially wore Craig Sager-inspired orange shoes, but scored 14 points on 18 field goals through the first three quarters. Steph changed to the Purple Playoff Shoes before his fourth-quarter run and dropped 18 points on seven field goals, including 14-of-14 from the free-throw line. The Warriors eked out an ugly 101-98 comeback victory to take a 3-1 series lead.

The Warriors eked out an ugly 101-98 comeback victory to take a 3-1 series lead.

At the time, Curry merely said he wanted to, “shock the system a little bit,” but he might have done more than that. Maybe he unlocked even more superpowers, because Friday’s Purple Playoffs Shoe-inspired performance was a Finals all-timer.

Aside from the look, those lavender legends also kept his all-important left foot in good shape. Curry showed no ill effects from the mild foot sprain he said he felt in Game 3 just 48 hours earlier.

As ESPN’s Nick DePaula noted, Andre Iguodala also wore the Curry 4 Flowtro Friday night. DePaula also shared Curry’s full lineup of game-used shoes so far in the Finals.
Will Steph bring them back out for Game 5 at Chase Center? Will he keep ‘em locked up until Game 6? Save them for Game 7?

You don’t wanna go to the well too many times, but it’s the Finals. The entire fate of the 2022 season and therefore the league’s history could be riding on those shoes. If the Warriors go on to win this thing, they might have to make room for a shoe display at the Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Massachusetts.
