Although the Chinese marketplace has been dominated in recent years by Nike due in large part to Kobe Bryant’s commitment to spreading the game in the Far East, his retirement from the Association certainly leaves a void for those wanting to capitalize.

Enter, Stephen Curry and Under Armour who have announced their “Journey to Excellence” Pack which has been released to coincide with the two-time MVP making his second pilgrimage to China.

Drawing inspiration from Journey to the West, a classic Chinese novel and one of the benchmarks for historic Chinese literature, the two colorways – Sun Wukong – channels the hero’s ability to overcome all obstacles with great power that is often underestimated – while Erlang Shen tells the story of always being super calm with laser focus.

The “Journey to Excellence” Pack keeps all of the features of the OG Under Armour Curry 2.5 – including the molding details inspired by the lights on the Bay Bridge, a molded synthetic upper, external heel and midfoot shanks and Charged Cushioning.

The “Journey to Excellence” Pack will launch first exclusively on UA Shop September 1. Under Armour Brand Houses nationwide and UA.com will drop the colorways on September 3.
