Pete Carroll thinks Steph Curry's maligned signature shoes are 'really awesome'
If you needed any more evidence that Stephen Curry's latest shoes from Under Armour are the ultimate "dad" kicks, Pete Carroll is here to help.
The Seattle Seahawks coach took to Twitter on Monday to let the world know that he thinks the much-maligned "Chef" Curry 2 Low is a true piece of sneaker art:
It's a nice bit of life imitating Twitter jokes, as plenty of users predicted Carroll would love these shoes when they were first unveiled:
Steph Curry’s new Under Armour shoes will be a nice upgrade for Pete Carroll #dad— Marina Molnar (@mkmolnar) June 10, 2016
Carroll, who's something of a "dad shoe" connoisseur, could be looking to make an upgrade from his current footwear. Carroll joked back in May that the Seahawks trainers are trying to get him to move on from his current "Air Paternos":
Our equipment guys are trying to get me in new shoes... I'm thinking of staying w/ my "Air Paternos"... Thoughts?? pic.twitter.com/gejdMn8byM— Pete Carroll (@PeteCarroll) May 2, 2016
You'll note that Carroll was modeling some newer Nikes in that photo from last month. Could we have a bidding war on our hands for Carroll's services, much like the famous duel between Nike and Under Armour for Curry's services?! ... yeah, probably not.
