By way of Uproxx’s Robby Kalland, Embiid made sure to craft a shoe that caters to players of all sizes, stating, “It’s not a big man shoe; it’s just a shoe for a basketball player. In the past, shoes I’ve had have been too heavy or too big. This idea was making it as light as possible. It all comes back to being able to do everything on the basketball court.”Under Armour Embiid One “Origin”
You can look for the Under Armour Embiid One to release in the “Origin” colorway on September 18 in North America via Eastbay.com, UA.com, and UA Brand Houses, and worldwide on October 2.
