Many assumed it to be their first collaborative release; Rocky quickly shot those rumors down.
A$AP Rocky reached out to confirm these sneakers are not part of his upcoming collaboration with Under Armour, while a rep from that brand confirmed the sneakers in question are an updated version of the Forge model.
Back in mid-September of last year, A$AP Rocky‘s AWGE branch and Under Armour officially announced their multifaceted partnership. Said to be housed under UA’s Sportswear umbrella, the pairing will see to a new line of products along with series of philanthropic community-based programs. With a celebrity line up that includes the likes of Stephen Curry, this marks the first time UA has teamed up with a musician/entertainer, and one from the hip-hop realm.
