words_Brandon Richard

After years of waiting, Under Armour basketball footwear is finally available to the public. The plan was put into action when the brand signed then high school sensation Brandon Jennings in 2008. Buzz for Under Armour Basketball picked up when their shoes were seen on the feet of Jennings during his 1-year stay in Europe and his rookie NBA season in Milwaukee. In August of this year, Under Armour finally announced a fall launch for their basketball line, which also includes a Brandon Jennings signature shoe. Today marks the official launch day of Under Armour Basketball footwear. Let’s take a closer look at some of the models available here at Eastbay.

The Micro G Black Ice is probably the shoe you’ve heard about the most. The first official signature shoe of Milwaukee Bucks point guard Brandon Jennings, the Black Ice was built almost solely to enhance speed. The shoe sports a light perforated leather upper, with synthetic material wrapped around the base. A forefoot cross-strap helps provide lockdown fit, while an internal molded Micro G footbed enhances comfort and cushioning. Jennings’ signature appears on the inner lining of the asymmetrical collar, which provides mobility and increased quickness. Lastly, the outsole  features an exclusive “shattered ice” pattern outsole, delivering superior on-court quickness.

What the Black Ice does for speed, the Micro G Fly does for flight. The heavily perforated synthetic base keeps the shoe light, but a molded collar and TPU heel counter keep it stable. To Full-length Micro G cushioning keeps you light on your feet, pads your landing and maintains bounce responsiveness. Traction is enhanced by a translucent rubber outsole.

Looking for a shoe to match your team uniform this year? The Micro G Lite has you covered. Available in a wide variety of colors, the Micro G Lite makes use of a Skeletex upper with lightweight welded overlays for breathability and support. Micro G cushioning and footbed offer comfort and responsiveness, while cut stability is provided by a TPU heel counter and carbon fiber support shank. Once again, a translucent rubber outsole aids traction below.

Get all of these models in an assortment of colorways here at Eastbay today!

    Awesome to see Under Armour finally releases them, but I still love the Prototype more than these three models. Not going to cop them for sure, but I will still be excited to see Jennings II.
