The idea of Under Armour was formed when Kevin Plank, a captain of a football team noticed that their shirts he and his teammates wore were always soaking wet with sweat. When he graduated, he designed a shirt that will keep athletes cool and dry even under extreme heat.

He worked on it until he perfected it. When he almost did, he maxed out his own credit card and set up a company in his grandmother’s basement. From that, the company has grown even bigger in the next years, leading them to move to a headquarter in Baltimore.

Over the years, it has gained popularity after supplying its products to iconic films, which they earned their big break. At the present time, Under Armour has made it to its peak and continues to produce a wide range of quality apparel,  including footwear.

The brand has made a mark on the sneakers industry by creating innovative sneakers and boots. Among these is Under Armour Valsetz RTS, Tactical Boots which the Under Armour Valsetz Trek took inspiration from. 

  • Under Armour branding on the tongue and insole.
