Knowing Miami, they'll just not sign another deal and wear the Dolphins old uniforms.

Teams are starting to realize that the kids really want UA gear. That and UA is giving better deals and their equipment for the most part is higher quality than Nike.

I think Nike realizes there are bigger programs/endeavors to go after.

They did just sign Tennessee and were able to keep Durant from getting snatched up by Under Armour.

I'm just reading this as you saying UA will surpass Nike, I don't think that will ever happen.

their nike uniforms lately with the odd looking upside down U on the front and backs of the jerseys above the uniforms have been terrible. they get rid of that and it will be an improvement.

Hmm wonder if it would be possible to get apparel from different companies, like Uniforms from UA, Shoes from Nike? I have heard a lot of about the UA shoes, I remember someone posted that Shaw said his shoes weren't that good.

UA shoes are really bad for basketball too. Heard of quite a few basketball programs having issues with UA shoes. Lack of support that leads to a lot of rolled/sprained ankles.

For example?

I know shoes can be a personal preference deal but I've never heard this nor could I find a single article online related to it.

I just got finished buying basketball shoes for my kids...my 10 year old daughter got a pair of Nike Hyperdunks and my 15 year old son got the UA Clutch Drives...Steph Curry's...and to be honest I like the UA's better...even though both are great. My son absolutely prefers them and he has worn the Hyperdunks the last two years. During the process we watched several review/test videos on both and most of the time the UA's came out ahead. Actually, almost every review I read about the clutch drives had them rated about as good as it gets.

I'm not claiming to know everything there is about b-ball kicks but again I would love to be able to take a look at what all these teams are supposedly talking about.

UA did bring on a former Nike exec and another form Nike designer in like 2011 to try and fix the shoe sector. I haven't worn any since 2010 or 11 and they were absolute junk. Maybe they have made some strides

Nike dominates the college sports landscape, outfitting 45 of the 65 "Power Five" conference programs. Adidas supplies 11 schools gear, while Under Armour has a deal with eight programs.

Exactly, look at all 4 teams in the playoff s this year. UA is garbage. UA is overrated, Nike is the NFL and NCAA.

You believe the reason most teams are paid to wear Nike by Nike is because of the unparalleled quality of their products?

Default Re: The U ends apparel deal with Nike

I work for Nike and i probably think about this everyday. WHY DID WE RE UP WITH UA?! Go to UA.com, the product selection on their site is extremely limited, their shoes suck, and our jerseys continually look like a cross between a high school team and and indoor team.

Maybe with all the ex nike employees they're swooping on it will start to come around soon.
