Is the above sneaker a collaboration between ASAP Rocky and Under Armour? According to the Harlem rapper, the answer is no. The image above surfaced on social media on Sunday night, causing many to speculate that the sneaker on the table was something born of the endorsement deal Rocky signed with the Baltimore-based brand in September.
Rocky cleared up the rumors with a blunt dismissal on social media.

According to an Under Armour spokesperson, the shoe is an update to the Forge franchise, which debuted via the Under Armour Sportswear line in November 2017.
"There is more to follow from this lifestyle sneaker silhouette that will drop in Spring/Summer 2018," the spokesperson told Sole Collector.
The shoe pictured with Rocky above has the same tooling as the original batch of Under Armour Forge models, this one with a new upper.
