Kent Bazemore Defends Steph Curry’s Dad Shoes

The Internet has been very busy the past 48 hours mocking Stephen Curry’s latest shoe — the Curry 2 “Chef” lows. As you can see above, it’s easy to see why people — especially the NSFW black dudes — went off on the uninspired New Balance lookalikes that are retailing for $110.


However, not everyone is thrilled about people piling on the model as Curry’s former teammate (and fellow Under Armour man), Kent Bazemore, took to Twitter to defend them:

The lifestyle vs. performance argument is a strong one, but we all know once Twitter gets a hold of something all bets are off. Curry doesn’t even wear the low version of his shoes that often, yet these grandpa takes will forever be associated with his model.

Steph’s bro is a fan, too:
