After months and months of speculation and grainy photos, it is believed that A$AP Rocky’s first Under Armour sneaker collab will finally be hitting retailers in the next few weeks. While Under Armour still has not officially introduced the sneakers, new images have recently surfaced courtesy of A$AP Mob manager and mentor, Chace Infinite.
Rocky’s first sneaker collaboration with Under Armour is built on a bulky low-top silhouette reminiscent of some old skate shoes such as the Osiris D3. The kicks look to feature a padded mesh upper accompanied by leather overlays and midfoot cages. The bulbous tongue references that the shoe was created in association with A$AP Rocky, and is part of Under Armour’s “Sports Style” division.
During an appearance on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah earlier this month Rocky gifted Noah with the kicks and revealed that they’ll be hitting retailers next month. Noah didn’t unbox the shoes on air but we did get a look at the packaging, which consists of two bright yellow boxes, one for each shoe, with the size printed in large font on the outside of each box.
Take a closer look at the kicks in the IG posts embedded below while we await official release details.
