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.
Be sure to head into your local Finish Line July 20th, or check FinishLine.com to grab a pair of the Under Armour C1N Trainer.
Back in October, Finish Line Women announced a contest to win a Girls Day Out with Under Armour Women athletes, @natalieuhling and @lizarch. The perks of the contest included spending a day with Natalie in Denver or a day with Liz in LA, some Under Armour swag, activities throughout the day and the winners could bring a friend along for the journey as well. After sorting through our contestants and picking our two winners @courtneyparnellyoga and @kayceeduale via Instagram, the excitement was full speed ahead and it was all about putting the ‘Girl’ in Girls Day Out.
The Denver Experience:
Winner @kayceeduale and friend @breefiggins spent the day with Natalie Uhling in Denver, CO. Kaycee and Bree are both from Los Angeles and couldn’t wait to get their Girls Day started. Both girls were very easy-going and positive women to be around. Their stamina in Natalie’s NUFit class was amazing and they had such a great time getting to know someone they look up to in the world of fitness and women empowerment. The ladies were also treated to brunch after their workout with Natalie, and to top off their Girls Day Out, they relaxed while getting mani-pedis.
The LA Experience:
Winner @courtneyparnellyoga and friend @gsnive spent the day with Liz Arch in Los Angeles, CA. Beautiful weather and good conversation is all a girl needs in the City of Angels and that’s exactly why we loved the vibes on this Girls Day Out. Starting off the day with Liz’s yoga class at Yoga Salt, Courtney and Grace were rocking their Under Armour swag and couldn’t wait to take to their mat. At lunch, the girls were able to talk to Liz and found inspiration from someone who is all about working hard and believes that everyone has their own spiritual journey to find success. It was such a positive, uplifting day, both Courtney and Grace walked away from the experience feeling so fortunate to have met Liz.
Under Armour Women and Finish Line want all girls to have this opportunity! We hope you participate in our next contest on @finishlinewomen and get to have a day just like Courtney and Kaycee 🙂

With the NBA season on a roll, the Warriors are locked and loaded to make a push back to the Finals for the third year in a row. They have added a new name to the roster but you have probably heard that old news by now. As if their star studded roster wasn’t strong enough, the addition of Kevin Durant is sure to make their offense even more fun to watch.
Under Armour is back again with the third signature sneaker for the quick footed, sharp shooter. After his last two sneakers performed well on the court and helped keep him healthy all season long, we can hope that the UA Curry 3 will do the same. Steph’s next sneaker offers the combination of lightweight support, speed and durability.
The next colorway comes dressed in the traditional Warriors colors of Royal blue and Yellow. These will go perfect with any warriors gear, or a nice pair of jeans if you hit the streets instead of the courts.
You can pick up your pair of the Under Armour Curry 3 ‘Heritage’ on November 5th at Finishline.com.
The weather is really starting to cool down after the first month of fall. If you haven’t already, it’s probably time to change up your sneaker rotation to better suit the climate. Here’s a couple of essentials for the rest of the season.
Time for the upgrade. The Roshe 2 maintains a minimal silhouette, and improvements to the sole offer additional comfort. The more refined look makes it easy to switch up your look from sweats to joggers. Also, props to the Swoosh for always giving us a plethora of colorways to choose from.
Can’t kick the classics. Ultimate simplicity made with premium pigskin leather upper. The Gazelle originally became a Three Stripes classic in the 90’s. Time to bring it back and set off your rotation. We are really feelin’ this Power Red colorway, but there are 8 others to choose from online.
The Huarache craze isn’t going anywhere. With so man iterations from Ultra and Utility to Tech Fleece, there’s no wonder that this remains and go-to in the rotation. Deep burgundy and other neutral earth tones are A1 for fall colorways.
Sun up to sun down. UA set out to make a shoe for all occasions and that’s what they’ve done here. They’re lightweight, sleek, and easy to dress. The Charged midsole offers plush cushioning for all day comfort. With a mid and low top version, they’re sure to be a hit in your collection.
Can’t have fall without Timbs. Solid craftsmanship makes this a high quality, everlasting boot. Waterproof for winter and versatile for every style. Every sneaker collection has to have a go-to boot and these are it.
