Under Armour brand in financial trouble
 

 
Under Armour (UAA) is a brand in crisis. The athletic apparel company reported better-than-expected earnings on Monday, but its stock plunged in the wake of news about a federal accounting probe.
...

Sol Marketing CEO Deb Gabor told Yahoo Financeís YFi AM on Monday. ďThe brand has largely fallen out of favor with teen boys, who are the arbiters of whatís cool in the athletic world.Ē

It also doesnít help that the brandís image has been tarnished because itís being sold in discount outlets like TJMaxx (TJX) and other discount stores, she noted.

Thought about copping the rocks shoe for workouts but sh*t is steep.

I do like their joggers and shorts though but I think they’re a little heavy handed on the branding in their designs.

Steph getting injured ain’t gonna help either

Yep. All the time.

Perception is a bi*ch tho.... nobody looks at UA in the same light as Nike, Nike can drop their brand a peg and sell their B-stock.

UA wants to sell workout clothes at a premium so it ainít a good look to also see them at discount department stores.

They were never a premium brand.

Steph gave them a good look signing with them while he was knocking down half court shots winning championships.

Failed because:

Huge Athlete Endorsements

Opening brick and mortar stores in the age of Amazon.

Building a luxury hotel across from the UA factory.

You misunderstood what he said

He said premium workout brand meaning their workout clothing and accessories

You are thinking of sneakers which is why you brought up Steph

UA was widely known for their workout attire long before anyone ever heard of Steph Curry

Iíve always a*sociated U/A with Steph. I think the kids do too if Iím not mistaken.

I would like to see the numbers prior to curry and after his signing to see if he had an impact.

Again you keep thinking of UA as a sneaker brand bringing up Stephen Curry

Again, UA was known for their workout clothing and accessories long before Stephen Curry signed a sneaker deal

Thought the owner being outed as racist maga would do this awhile ago but the decline happened organically.


Guess Becky worshipping Bazemore doesn't carry the brand like a healthy Curry can.

They started getting a foothold into college teams, like University of Maryland. Then, they worked up from there.
