In collaboration with Joel Embiid, the Under Armour Embiid One basketball shoe is the professional basketball player’s first ever signature shoe. This shoe combines the technology of HOVR and Micro-G.
It has the UA HOVR technology in the heel, offering an energy boost which returns energy to get you where you’re going faster. It provides zero gravity feel to help eliminate impact.
The upper is made with fitted, open-holed, lightweight textile mesh for a locked-in feel with breathability, at the same time, providing the ventilation you need so you will not overheat your feet.
Die-cut EVA sockliner provides underfoot cushioning and support. Detachable sockliner molds to the foot, eliminating slippage & providing great underfoot comfort. Circular, flex grooves underfoot for improved floor grip and flexible steering.
Strategic Micro G cushioning is present in the soles that allows for a quicker first step and more explosive manoeuvres getting to the basket. It allows you to react quicker in every move you make.
Wide lateral wings add extra support and stability what even a footer needs to feel more secure and confident, letting you move the way you want. This shoe also adds an ankle collar and tongue padding for elevated comfort.
With a unique tread pattern for better grip and traction, the outsole not only tells Joel’s Journey, but helps you move all over the court without hesitation. The tough and durable rubber outsole covers high-impact areas, for cushioned landings. TPU plate and midfoot shelter are connected to the outsole for stable support.
