Charlotte native Stephen Curry is paying homage to his hometown with his new shoe, the Under Armour Curry Two “Providence Road.”

Under Armour describes the shoe as “a nod to his roots in North Carolina, where Stephen Curry fell in love with the game.”

“I was raised in Charlotte,” Curry said in a promotional video. “It’s who I am. This is where I learned the game.”

The reigning NBA MVP’s shoe is royal blue with white and red accents, the colors Curry wore playing at Charlotte Christian.

The North Carolina flag is patched inside the shoe’s tongue with the Golden State Warriors star’s initials – WSC (Wardell Stephen Curry) – embroidered inside the flag.

The shoes go on sale Dec. 11 and retail for $129.99.
