More About Under Armour
A well-known mainstay on athletic fields, gyms and courts throughout the world, Under Armour is an American sports clothing and accessories company that produces innovative, hi-tec performance footwear, apparel and accessories including Under Armour Underwear.
The company was founded in 1996 after Kevin Plank, the special teams captain on the University of Maryland football team, noticed that the cotton T-shirts he and his teammates wore underneath their pads were always soaked and heavy with sweat. After graduation, Plank set out to make T–shirts made from microfibers that wicked away moisture and kept athletes cool, dry and light.
Since then, the brand has been producing high performance Under Armour Underwear often favored by athletes. Under Armour Underwear for Men offers sweat wicking properties similar to the brand’s T-shirts. Under Armour Underwear for Men is available as the brand’s trademarked Boxerjock, which features s smooth, sleek HeatGear fabric that gives maximum performance.
With the use of microfiber or cotton blended with microfiber fabrics, Under Armour Underwear for men provides a four-way stretch fabrication that allows ideal mobility while maintaining shape. Plus, Mens Under Armour Underwear comes with a chafe-free flatlock seam construction. Under Armour Underwear gets updated twice a year with new colors and prints.
Elite athletes from virtually every sport such as Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, Milwaukee Bucks point guard Brandon Jennings, American Alpine ski racer Lindsey Vonn, Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper and Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps have publicly worn Under Armour. Thanks to popular athletes, the brand earned global recognition during the late ‘90s. In 1997, Oakland Raiders quarterback Jeff George wore a branded mock turtleneck on the cover of USA Today. And in the Oliver Stone 1999 film, Any Given Sunday, actor Jamie Foxx wears an Under Armour Jockstrap—a choice attributed to Plank sending free samples to the costume designer.
Under Armour’s global headquarters is located in Baltimore, Maryland.
