Joel Embiid has quietly been working with Under Armour on his first signature shoe dubbed the Embiid One which is set to debut in this “Origin” colorway. 

Philadelphia 76ers star Power Forward, Joel Embiid has quickly captivated the league in his relatively short career. With his dominant performance on the court and great one of one personality off the court, the 7’0″ star from Cameroon has secured his first signature sneaker with none other than Under Armour. Joining Steph at the UA family, Embiid is set to debut his first iteration in the US next month in September. The sneaker arrives with an aggressive design with the latest Under Armour tech like an open mesh upper that allows breathability, a TPU wing that adds support, Micro G in the midsole, and HOVR in the heel which returns energy for more pounce in your step. This “Origin” colorway sets the tone for the new sneaker line with a great colorway that consists of a black and grey design that showcases a gradient theme on the Wings that calls for red, orange, and yellow which matches the Embiid logo on the tongue perfectly.

UPDATE: Under Armour was kind enough to send a pair of Joel Embiid’s first signature shoe our way and from the moment we took them out of the box, we could tell UA meant business. The midsole and outsole come built to play all four quarters providing great traction and stability from every angle. With a breathable mesh upper that comes stacked for comfort, the sneaker also is lightweight which can dramatically up your game. Along with the performance capabilities, the Origin colorway dons a sleek black upper that boasts business attire but the vibrant gradient wing overlay allows you to stand out on whatever court you lace them up in. Check out some of our shots of the debut colorway below and make sure to head over to tomorrow September 18th to snag a pair of your own.

UPDATE: Although the Origin colorway is set to debut the Embiid One, another colorway has surfaced just today in a white/multi color scheme. Check them out below and make sure to stay tuned for more details.
