Under Armour will debut its chunky UA Forge 96 sneaker in Singapore this week

The Under Armour Forge 96 sneaker will release in Singapore this Friday, September 28.

It will be the American sportswear brand’s first foray in the chunky sneaker category.

If the sneaker seems familiar, it’s probably because it was first leaked online in an image alongside A$AP Rocky earlier this year. Dropping in Singapore this week, the limited edition sneaker casts a throwback light to chunky silhouettes which were popular in the 90s. Despite the “dad shoe” style and retro color scheme, the sneaker will come packed with modern materials and technology.

The uppers are constructed in a mix of mesh for strategic ventilation as well as soft suede and premium leather for durability. Despite the bulky nature of the sneaker, expect it to be light and comfortable on feet thanks to its EVA foam cushioning.

Under Armour’s recent offerings such as the “Be Seen” collection reflects an all-in effort to engineer more lifestyle-friendly products while still maintaining the performance aspect the brand is known for. With the Under Armour Forge 96 sneaker, it continues to present a fashionable range of products suitable for both the gym and the streets.
