It took the brand originally founded in 1996 and known for their tight fitting t-shirts almost a decade to actually enter the footwear market, and this season a new milestone was quietly set out east in Baltimore. As the brand's basketball division ramps up its product line and marketing efforts this fall -- lockout be damned -- they also dropped their first ever casual sneaker on us.

Out now in a rich full grain leather upper, the UA Mobtown comes in just one basic Black / White colorway for now, and includes a velour liner and Micro G footbed. You can check them out now over at the all new ravamped UA.com web store for $99.99.

What do you think of the new off-court effort from Under Armour Basketball?
