To go from Heisman winner, to national champion, to first overall pick in the NFL Draft is impressive, but to also lock in NFL Rookie of The Year all in the span of one year, that’s unheard of. For a man that’s defying the odds on the gridiron, Cam Newton, also known as Mr. MVP, has earned the right to be referred to as “Hometown Hero” in both the Carolinas, and his hometown, Atlanta, Georgia; he led his team to a 15-1 season and a Super Bowl. Our friends over at Under Armour partnered with Cam Newton create the C1N Trainer, a new signature shoe for Atlanta’s “Hometown Hero”. Just yesterday, Under Armour held a launch party in Atlanta Georgia where the man himself, Cam Newton, unveiled his new trainer to the public while rapping alongside 2 Chainz.
The Under Armour C1N offers a futuristic out of the box design that organically blends the ferocity of the Football field with the artistic expression of the streets. If you’re looking for the perfect pair of shoes to be the center of attention while enduring pre-season work outs, or walking down your city block this is the ideal shoe for you. Look for this shoe to be featured in three colorways, the first of which is a red and metallic gold colorway, paying homage to Cam’s southern roots.
