Under Armour readies next season's basketball footwear lineup with the introduction of the brand new Micro G Torch. The Torch is an ultra-lightweight model that features a minimally lined synthetic upper with laser-etched perforations for enhanced breathability. Molded paneling provides medial and lateral support, while a contoured collar sheds weight and makes for a stylish on and off-court look.
Reflective details on the eyestay overlays and heel logo help bring Under Armour's "Team Reflectivity" story to the courts, where players shine the brightest when the spotlight is one them.
A full-length Ortholite sockliner makes for a comfortable ride; Micro G foam and a midfoot TPU shank provide torsional rigidity and lateral stability; and a full-length one-piece rubber outsole with a multi-directional traction pattern ensures exceptional lateral and linear movement.
Available colorways will include Taxi/Black/Silver, White/Black/Silver, Black/Black/Silver, Red/Black/Silver, Royal/Black/Silver, Forest Green/Black/Silver, Orange/Black/Silver, Midnight Navy/Black/Silver and Purple/Black/Silver.
Priced at $90, the Micro G Torch will be available at UnderArmour.com next Wednesday, August 15. A wider release will take place on Saturday, September 1.
