A durable feel can be anticipated from the suede upper, while the low-top design keeps the ankle free of restrictions. The elastic gore at the sides of the tongue helps in easily slipping the foot in and out.

Available in two colorways, the Imperial Purple/White and the Steel/White combinations, the low-top Under Armour DJ Suede has a straightforward look. It would go well with almost any type of casual outfit, especially when paired with jeans, skirts, and shorts. It could also be worn with a variety of light dresses. With its slip-on design and simple flair, the shoe is perfect for the summer season.

With its soft suede upper, the Under Armour DJ Suede provides a durable and comfortable support. Its upper is also made to be lightweight and flexible, giving off a distinct sleek feminine fit. It’s done in a monochrome and patterned design. Continuing the simple yet elegant appeal is the plain white midsole. Embossed on the heel is the Under Armour logo.

American footwear and apparel brand Under Armour was founded in the year 1996 by Kevin Plank. He was a former soccer special teams captain and had an idea for moisture-wicking shirts. As an athlete in college, he was tired of changing his wet t-shirts underneath his uniform. He also took note that the compression shorts he used for practice stayed dry despite the sweat-inducing activities.

Inspired, Plank traveled up and down the East Coast, his trunk loaded with his innovative shirts, which made use of a synthetic moisture-wicking material. The microfibers used in the clothes gave athletes a cool, dry, and lightweight feeling. Soon, sports teams and athletes recognized the efficiency of the brand's products, leading to Under Armour expanding its product catalog.

More items were added along with the brand’s apparel line, including accessories and footwear. For the latter, Under Armour experienced a newfound influence due to its collaboration with such athletes as NBA Most Valuable Player Stephen Curry. Just like its clothing series for men and women, the brand’s shoes have proven to be innovative and practical yet stylish.

From its casual series, there’s the Under Armour DJ Suede, a popular silhouette that has a slip-on design for easy wearing. It has a simple approach and a slim profile that makes it look low-key and laidback. At the same time, it has a sophisticated and subtle touch that makes it suitable for more formal endeavors. It’s an ideal shoe for shifting from one activity to another, offering a stylish look while not sacrificing function.
