Warriors Star Steph Curry Laces Up in Artistic Sneakers With Initials of 36 ‘Ghost Ship’ Victims Etched on Side.
Golden State Warriors All Star and reigning two-time NBA MVP Stephen Curry on Thursday night laced up a special pair of sneakers to honor the creative souls who died in this month’s Oakland warehouse fire. The shoes, designed by two artists themselves in the Maryland area, had each of the 36 victims’ names etched in paint.
“It was bittersweet,” said David Zambrano of Dez Customz, who along with his partner, Mohammed Gafar, designed the Under Armour sneakers for Curry. “We loved the opportunity, but we hate that it occurred. It could have been us if we had lived in the Bay Area. They lost themselves being creative. Three dozen people.”
