Brandon Jennings' Under Armour Anatomix Spawn Low PE
words // Brandon Richard
This season marks a fresh start for Brandon Jennings, starting at point guard for the Detroit Pistons after four seasons in Milwaukee. Looking to lift the Pistons back into post season contention, Jennings is averaging a career-high 8.5 assists per game. He's taking his game to the next level with a 'No Excuses' mindset, the inspiration behind his PE colorway of the Under Armour Anatomix Spawn Low.
Decked out in black and red, Jennings' PE is personalized with an interlocking BJ & 3 logo, representing the close relationship he has with his mother and younger brother. This colorway won't hit retail, but you can expect several Anatomix Spawn PEs to release next month.
That's the whole point.. for this shoe to perform. That's what Under Armour is, a performance brand. If you want fruity CW's, Nike is mostly a lifestyle brand now.. they got you covered.
I know all that. My point is it is only a 1 or 2 degrees of separation from other performance shoes, looks and color wise. It looks like any number of current or very recent game shoes (current CP comes to mind). CW is an old warhorse. While nike may do "fruity CW's", claiming they are "mostly a lifestyle brand" is ridiculous. They continue to drive innovation in the athletic shoe market. This shoe here is just the UA version of Hyperfuze.
You must not have tried any recent UA basketball shoes, specifically the Spawn, to say that this is the "UA version of the Hyperfuse"; the Micro G cushioning that is standard on all UA basketball products have been lauded by many, reviewers or consumers alike, who've actually tried them.
Nike is still clearly the leader in basketball, but give me brands who wants to challenge the norm, then settle for scraps.
