Under Armour’s CURRY 4 is all about MORE

Under Armour’s newest basketball shoe from the Stephen Curry line, the Curry 4 has now arrived in the Philippines! With only 200 pairs available in this initial release, the Curry 4 model is now available in the Philippines through the Under Armour Brand Houses and various multi-brand stores.

To know more about Curry 4, read on the official press release below.

More Comfort, More Control, More Traction

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The Curry 4 is all about more – Stephen’s insatiable desire to win more, to play more and to achieve more. The shoe was designed from the ground up with one thing in mind – to help Stephen get more, from the first ideation conversations to sketches, to design iterations and beyond.

The Curry 4 offers more control, via continuity; a seamless feel between the foot and the shoe, and that is evident when putting on the footwear. Immediately, the shoe conforms to your foot, with no break in period, offering more comfort than ever before.

Traction is critical to Stephen’s game; the ability to grip the hardwood with no slippage and ensure the quickest, cleanest cuts to offer that extra sliver of space gives Stephen all he needs to unleash the fastest, deadliest release in the league. Concentric circles, inspired by gravitational waves, achieve more traction, beyond any prior Curry footwear iteration.

Additional tech details driving the Curry 4:

  • Knit internal sleeve creates a structural fit around the collar & forefoot for an amplified performance feel
  • Microfiber synthetic quarter panel is bonded to the knit material giving the ideal balance of support with reduced weight
  • Dynamic seam taping merges the knit sleeve & synthetic quarter panel without adding any stitching
  • Speed plate for underfoot structure & performance containment built to handle explosive movements
  • Cross-centric traction pattern is designed to optimize on forefoot-to-heel traction & provide amazing grip on any court
  • Proprietary foam compound for responsiveness underfoot

Stephen has helped redefine what success looks like in professional basketball – being quick and light is the name of the game, and Under Armour has applied that approach to the design and functionality of the Curry 4.

 

Under Armour’s Charged BANDIT 3 – My Initial Impression

Under Armour has recently released the newest iteration of their Charged Bandit running shoe line – Bandit 3 and it surely is set to steal a runner’s heart away!

Designed to be “street ready”, it not only boasts of its ability to satisfy a runner’s need for a great performance shoe, it is also stylish enough to be an everyday shoe. 

Thanks to the people of Under Armour Philippines, I got the chance to get first dibs on a pair of Bandit 3!

I also have the first two generations of the Bandit shoes and I believe that this third iteration is the best Bandit shoe so far!

From left to right: Charged Bandit 1, Bandit 3 and Bandit 2.

Here are my initial impressions:

  • its upper material is knitted, makes it more lightweight (lighter than Bandit 2) and breathable 
  • it fits well and is comfortable to wear – for someone with a narrow feet like mine, i love how the shoe hugs my feet
  • there is enough cushioning on the heel, making the back of my feet fit securely in place – oh and I love that the heel counter has this small cushion that is like a pillow that wraps around my heel. so comfy!
  • For minimalists, it is good to note that this shoe has lessened the heel-toe drop from 10mm to 8mm. 
  • The charged cushioning feature of the Bandit 2 is still present in this iteration – great news for “neutral runners” who wants not only a lightweight shoe but one with responsive feedback as well.
  • IT IS A LOOKER! I have only worn it a few number of times but I have been getting gazes and glances on my feet whenever I have it on. 🙂

I love my Bandit 3 pair! Thanks Under Armour!

The Under Armour has definitely redefined the word “bandit” in a positive way. I enjoyed using the Bandit 3 – whether from running a short 5km or just simply walking. And I am truly excited to find out what more this pair can deliver for me, as I continue using it.

For runners who would like a running shoe that is worth their every peso, the Bandit 3 will not disappoint. After all, it was “designed to do it all,  ready to log miles on miles – all while looking, feeling, and fitting great.”

Hana Shampoo’s Soft and Smooth Line Relaunched

I was at this afternoon’s relaunch of the Hana Shampoo, a Japanese shampoo brand being distributed by top FMCG company, Peerless Marketing and I am honestly excited to use the three new fragrances from their soft and smooth line. If the scent is a preview of what the shampoo will do to my hair, then I am definitely convinced!

Read on the below presser and watch the brand’s newest TV ad featuring Marian Rivera and get to know what I am referring to. 🙂

PRESS RELEASE:

NEW DAY, NEW HANA SHAMPOO

In just a day, a number of different things can happen, whether it’s things like the weather and traffic, or to things we’re able to control like one’s plans and one’s appearance. There’s one thing though we Filipinas wish could have full control of –- and that’s soft and fragrant hair, all day, everyday.

New Hana Soft & Smooth Shampoo delivers just that even after a long and eventful day. With natural moisturizers and fresh new fragrances, Hana is able to keep one’s hair looking and smelling like it’s freshly washed all day – parang bagong shampoo – which is an ideal every Filipina wishes for as they go through their day. With such effortlessly manageable and fragrant hair, even in the midst of a busy day, you can still look and feel your best no matter the situation.

Figuratively a new day has come as well for Hana Shampoo, with its relaunched line of Soft and Smooth variants available in three wonderful fragrances — Pink Roses and Berries, Spring Flowers and Apples, and Garden Blooms and Lychees. Hana combines the alluring fragrance of flowers and the freshness of fruits in each of those variants, guaranteed to provide long-lasting fragrance on hair all day. Moreover, each bottle now comes with artistically rendered designs meant to visualize the wonderful nature-inspired fragrance notes one can enjoy upon each use of Hana shampoo.

The new Hana Shampoo TV commercial features the always beautiful Marian Rivera, who has bloomed even more as a wife and mother. In the commercial, she turns heads as she walks the streets from daytime to evening. Just like all other Filipinas, everyday she is exposed to the sun, heat and pollution but with her soft, fragrant and lovely hair, passers-by can’t help themselves but be drawn to her effortless beauty and hair that’s parang bagong shampoo always.
