Warriors' point guard Steph Curry will go down in history as one of basketball's greatest shooters and a damn good Carpool Karaoke participant, but the Internet is less than impressed with his shoe design skills.

Curry just unveiled his latest limited edition sneaker with Under Armour—an oxblood variation on his 90s-inspired Curry Lux high top—and Twitter commenters dogpiled on the design, comparing it to car seat upholstery and cockroaches. But it's not just Twitter; GQ hates these sneakers, too. Consumers, however, can't stay away. The oxblood Curry Lux is completely sold out.

If you want your own Curry Lux kicks, you'll have to settle for one of three other colorways, which were maligned in their own rite upon release. In good news, the standard black, steel, and white options are currently on sale for $97. Given the commenter feedback, is anyone surprised?
