Under Armour is a multinational company that prides itself with a long list of athletic and footwear lines. Despite being relatively new to the market, UA is considered a rival of sportswear giants, such as Nike, Adidas, and Puma.

The history of this Baltimore-based brand began in Washington, D.C.Its founder, Kevin Plank, started Under Armour in 1996 when he was then a 23-year-old soccer team captain. Initially, UA was a company that sells moisture-wicking T-shirts for athletes. 

When the front page of USA Today featured a photo of Jeff George, an Oakland Raiders quarterback, in an Under Armour turtleneck shirt, people began to notice the brand. Soon, Nike, Adidas, and Reebok joined in the bandwagon of manufacturing moisture-wicking synthetic fabric apparel.

In 1999, Under Armour shirts experienced rapid growth when they were used in Universal Studio films, such as The Replacements and Any Given Day. The brand now sponsors several teams, including the NFL Combine and the University of Notre Dame.

Today, Under Armour has come a long way from being just an apparel brand. It has released tons of soccer cleats, running shoes, and sneakers. One of the trendy athleisure kicks from the brand is the UA Skylar. 

The silhouette is made for active users who want to stay cool and comfortable despite being always on the go.
