Hat tip: Christian Post–
Stephen Curry, the Christian Golden State Warriors point guard, recently spoke about how his faith has enabled him to release the new Curry One Under Armour signature shoe.
Curry, 26, used to have a deal with Nike but chose to connect with Under Armour so that he could blend his faith with his signature shoe. The Curry One is slated for a Feb. 13 release, and Curry has been promoting the sneaker with the tagline “charged by belief.”
In a recent question and answer session for the Under Armour shoe, the Christian NBA All-Star with a jersey that is only being outsold by that of the NBA’s Lebron James, spoke about the meaning of the tagline.
“Charged by belief has a lot of meaning,” Curry said, according to Rapzilla reports. “It matches with the Under Armour story, being an underdog and having to build from the ground up, and the belief [Under Armour CEO] Kevin Plank had in his vision. It’s also about my faith and the belief in my game despite what other people might say.”
During the Q&A session, Curry spoke in detail about his faith after one member of the media questioned him about the meaning of the 4:13 that he made sure was placed at the bottom of some of the sneakers’ tongues. Inside the tongue reads, “I can do all things,” which comes from Philippians 4:13 which states,”I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me (KJV).”
Curry spoke about his idea to include the phrase in his first signature shoe for Under Armour.
In this day and age it’s rare to see athletes speak about their faith so openly. It seems we only hear about athletes when they get in trouble with the law.
