Under Armour welcomed its newest branch in Trinoma with a Basketball Camp handled by the Ageless Asi Taulava and the hardworking power forward Jervy Cruz last August 13, 2016. Under Armour has now expanded its presence to its 5th branch after BGC, Megamall, UP Town Center, Ayala Town Center Cebu.
There’s no stopping the growth of the Under Armour Brand on Philippine shores. After their maiden branch in Bonifacio Global City, they have continued to expand their reach with their brand house in SM Megamall, Up Town Center and their first one outside Metro Manila in their Ayala Center Cebu Branch. Theyjust opened their 5th brand house to cover Northern Manila in their Trinoma Branch last August 12, 2016. They also brought in the Ageless Asi Taulava and Ginebra’s power forward workhorse Jervy Cruz to conduct basketball clinics last August 13, 2016. They also had a shootout where spectators got the chance to unleash their inner Stephen Curry.
Under Armour is regarded as the most innovative sports and fitness clothing line in the world. It’s know to bring out the latest technology in their products that also helps boost their stock as a performance brand. The Trinoma store is also expected to carry the current and upcoming products of Under Armour like the top-of-the-line Curry 2.5 and the highly-acclaimed UA Charged Bandit 2 on its shelves.
Designed for NBA’s most prolific point guard, Curry 2.5 is molded in synthetic upper that is wrapped closely around the foot for a lightweight and precise fit. In addition, Curry 2.5 has an external PU shell that provides durable support and structure as well as an external shank and heel counter that delivers locked-in stability through heel, arch and forefoot to maintain balance. What I like about the Curry Signature Series is that it adopts to your movement and does not feel tight on the ankle giving you a wider range of motion.
