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 Finance’s YFi AM on Monday. “The brand has largely fallen out of favor with teen boys, who are the arbiters of what’s cool in the athletic world.”

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 ain’t 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

I’ve always a*sociated U/A with Steph. I think the kids do too if I’m 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.

There lies the problem 99% of they’re success was based on Steph and Cam Newton at the height of they popularity.. Now the Warriors ain’t the hot team and Cam can’t stay healthy ain’t nobody checking for em.. They MVP years n*ggas was wearing tf outta UA

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

if they would've had better creative directors in their building they wouldn't have this problem at all but instead they keep making these sh*tty a*s republican looking a*s shoes for Curry
