Steph Curry will auction off a pair of custom-designed sneakers to raise money for the families of the victims of last month’s Atlanta-area spa shootings. The Golden State Warriors star wore the yellow, white and black shoes in his side’s defeat to the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday to show solidarity with the Asian community which has faced an increase of hate crimes over the past year.
The shoes, designed in tandem with the Bruce Lee Foundation, included Bruce Lee’s painted face alongside his famous quote which reads: “Under the heavens, there is but one family.” “I think Stephen’s gesture is a beautiful example of allyship and solidarity in action,” said Shannon Lee, chairperson of the Bruce Lee Foundation board of directors. “I am honored he would choose my father and my family as the symbol for the idea that we are all one family, as my father said, and therefore must all stand for one another.”

Nick DePaula: Curry’s shoes feature a @BruceLee quote: “Under the heavens, there is but one family.” “We are all different & unique. On purpose. But, we are all human beings on a quest to fulfill our purpose and that energy should be used to uplift & love each other to the fullest,” he said.
Mirjam Swanson: Kawhi’s sneakers show his ‘Moreno Valley swag,’ and this week’s sneaker giveaway there shows he cares. @movalmayor is a fan: “We’re really excited to have someone from Moreno Valley that’s a star and willing to give back to the community he grew up.” ocregister.com/2021/04/03/cli…
