Under Armour is introducing the M-Tag, a new basketball sneaker that will draw eyes on and off the court. The M-Tag is being worn by UA athletes Josh Jackson, Dennis Smith Jr. and Will Barton, each of whom will have their own unique player exclusive in partnership with PINTRILL, an accessory brand that creates pin designs inspired by pop culture icons and sayings.
On the court, the M-Tag will keep you comfortable throughout an entire game with a form-fitting compression upper inspired by the original Under Armour compression shirt that put the company on the map. It is one of the most lightweight basketball shoes on the market.
Josh Jackson’s M-Tag PE is inspired by his love of the finer things in life. The maroon and gold colors of the shoe draw from some of Josh’s favorite luxury brands. A luxe shoe that effortlessly catches the eyes, made for a silky-smooth baller that elevates with ease.
Dennis Smith Jr.’s M-Tag PE pays homage to the world’s largest single military installation—Fort Bragg, with over 50,000 active duty personnel—located in his hometown of Fayetteville, North Carolina. The metallic iron and aluminum color base is a nod to the insignia of the United States Army Special Operations Command, while the tan sole acknowledges one of the Army’s primary colors.
Will Barton, a Baltimore native just like Under Armour, combines his love of the Orioles and Ravens into his “Charm City” M-Tag PE. Black, white, purple, yellow and orange, the shoe combines the colors of both teams into a stunningly colorful representation of Baltimore. Just like the birds of Baltimore, and inspired by Will’s insane leaping ability, this shoe was built to fly.
Multiple colorways of the M-Tag are now available on UA.com, and the player exclusives from Josh Jackson, Dennis Smith Jr. and Will Barton, will be available at UA.com, UA Brand Houses and Champs Armoury locations on December 8.
