I feel like UA gear is more expensive though. Could just be because all fan gear is expensive though.

Under Armour is better. Next time you're in a store, grab a Under Armour hoodie and a Nike hoodie. UA uses makes a better quality of product, it is slightly higher in cost, but lasts longer.

Well the US military diagree's with you and they tested the shit out of both of them before awarding UA the contract for all services. It is really telling when the US military awards a contract to a company when their bid was higher than the competitor.

This is so true. As a HS coach who gets gear all the time, we stopped getting Nike because it just wasn't as good of quality or as nicely done. The kids definitely love UA more than Nike. I think Nike fans are 35-55 year on average because that was the cool thing when they were younger but this under 35 are more likely a UA fan. I love USC being with UA and hope they stay with them. Can we all at least agree, thank God we don't have Adidas.

Every company has their pros and cons:

Under Armour produces nice quality apparel. Hoodies, shorts, shirts. Their quality matches that of any of the major brands, if not better than them. However, they are failry new to the shoe game. They didn't start selling shoes, cleats until 2006. With only 7 years under their belt, it's easy to see why people do not trust their shoes. With that said though, they've come a long way. Our players like their cleats and shoes across all sports.

Nike, obviously the biggest name in the industry. They're a 69 billion dollar industry for a reason. However, they have been known to produce low quality material. While you can find quality material too, it's no better than Under Armour on the norm. Their shoes dominate Under Armour when looking at them as a whole. However, 50% (if not higher) of Nike's sales are for casual purpose. Nike use to be a straight sports business. They've since moved into the casual business. While Nike is still a leader (overall) for sports apparel and accessories, they've moved into the casual aspect to attract a variety of ages of both men and women.

When looking at cleats - Under Armour is on par when it comes to baseball and football. The Nike Vapor series might be the all time favorite cleat for skill positions, Nike fails to make adequate linemen cleats. Under Armour actually makes the best linemen cleat available. So it's a toss up.

People are out there that think Nike is SO MUCH better than Under Armour. There are people out there that think Under Armour is much better than Nike. I don't think either is better than the other on a industry standpoint. Obviously each has it's parts that are better than the other, but as a whole I don't think either is that much better or worse than the other...

If UA was so much better more schools would be singed up with them but they aren't. That should tell you all you need to know.

Why? Because Nike had more schools under contract before Under Armour even got started making cleats? Again, logical explanation.

Under Armour will continue to convert more and more schools. It's already converted Texas Tech, Northwestern, and Boston College. Eventually Nike's contracts will run out with other teams, and Under Armour will scoop a few away.

If Nike is SOOOOOOO MUCH BETTER than Under Armour, why does Cam Newton, Tom Brady, Ray Lewis, Bryce Harper, Ryan Howard etc. etc choose them over Nike? They could have any sponsor they wanted.

You do realize UA pays those athletes don't you?

Texas Tech has been UA way before USC. Only two big schools UA has is us and Auburn. No other big time program will sign with them.

1. They aren't a marketable company like Nike is...

2. Nike makes Jordan's for God sakes.

3. UA isn't appealing at all.

Okay, I'm arguing with a Nike-homer who doesn't base his/her opinion on the gear, but personal preference. It makes sense now.

You probably believe that Marcus Lattimore tore his ACL because of Under Armour cleats too.

They're not marketable? Yes they are. If they weren't they wouldn't be a company.

Nike makes Jordans....woooow.

UA isn't appealling. Tell that to everyone who buys it. It's one of the fastest growing companies...in the world.

Haha...feel free to go to CockyTalk.com and sign in and go to USER CP and follow those instructions I gave to you earlier in the week to ignore me.

I don't argue with everyone. But you know me, everything about me, you know literally the ins and outs of me. So, go on. You can know me...but you obviously don't know what your talking about when it comes to finding a reason (other than personal preference) of why Nike is better than Under Armour.

And just to prove you wrong, this is the first argumentive series of post I've gotten into since the last time you attacked me in a thread a few days ago.

Its more expensive because its higher quality. Nike made their stuff in child sweatshops, now its just made in near slave conditions.
