Amar Dhadwal Shares Inpiration Behind Under Armour Creations

Outdoor/Training Footwear Designer at Under Armour, Amar Dhadwal recently shared some insight into the design and inspiration behind some of the Under Armour’s styles that he’s worked on. From the heavily moulded, Acquisition and Stryker silhouettes, to the light and agile SpeedFit (both 1 & 2) and finally the Infil Ops, which could easily be featured in some type of futuristic dystopian film, you can see some of the initial sketches and final product shots, below.
 

Aquisition

“Indestructible equipment inspired by an apex predator that has suvived on our planet for 200 million years.

Followed up on the original Infil by Steve MacDonald. Existing tooling.” – Amar
