While Hillary Clinton is burning Donald Trump on social media, everyone else is burning Steph Curry. Not for any recent screw-ups on the court, but for his new Curry Two Low "Chef" sneakers, released Thursday by Under Armour, reports For the Win. Not that there's anything atrociously hideous about them—they're just, well, "unexpectedly plain" and "look like hospital shoes," FTW notes. The unembellished footwear didn't escape Twitter's fashion-forward scrutiny, and Deadspin has culled some of the snarkier tweets about the shoes—including one from Curry's own brother, Seth.

"I thought I had em looking straight last week," Seth tweeted Thursday night, including a laughing/crying emoticon to poke fun of the Chefs (and his older brother). "Really targeting that emergency room nurse demographic," reads another tweet. One person who doesn't mind the sneakers' aesthetics: Deadspin writer Samer Kalaf's dad, who offered the following review: "I think they look good. That said, I see the 'arch' is low." Game Four of the championship is 9pm Friday. (A Cleveland Cavaliers fan got fired for his tweet about Steph Curry.)
