A$AP Rocky X Under Armour Sneaker Collab: Clearest Look Yet

After months teasers and grainy photos we finally have a clear look at A$AP Rocky’s sneaker collaboration with Under Armour. The lumbering shoe comes in two colorways, an all-black version and an other with a lacing cage painted colored white.

Several members the A$AP Mob have done their part in building up the launch, even Tyler the Creator remarked on how ugly they looked in an apparent marketing campaign that used reverse psychology. Tyler asked: “What shelter you find these at?” during the spat.

Both snapshots were uploaded by A$AP Rocky friend and musical cohort Chace Infinite, and they are certainly the best angles we’ve seen so far.
