Under Armour Expands Outdoor Category with Horizon Collection

Thank you for joining Sourcing Journal & industry leaders at our SOURCING SUMMIT NY, as we discussed the most pressing issues of the day. View the Summit on demand through Jan. 2, and stay tuned for the upcoming Companion Report.

Under Armour is set to launch a new collection of trail running footwear at this year’s Summer Outdoor Retailer expo in Salt Lake City.

The Horizon Trail Run Footwear Collection is the latest in Under Armour’s technical trail running line of footwear, featuring ESS rock plates, monocoque construction, durable welded overlays, internal fit systems, toe protection and Michelin outsole compounds and lug design.

“The Horizon Series is a true technical trail running collection featuring best-in-class technologies to help outdoor athletes achieve their personal best,” said Chris Lindgren, Under Armour VP of Footwear, Outdoor & Training. “The Horizon Series is built for the needs of a wide variety of trail runners from the enthusiast out on a weekend run with their crew to elite competitors participating in Ultra’s or Vertical K races.”

The collection includes three styles, the Horizon FKT, retailing for $130, the Horizon RTR, retailing for $110, and the Horizon STC, retailing for $90.

Created with insights from Under Armour “ultra runner” Kyle Dietz, the Horizon FKT is light and durable, featuring a translucent ripstop upper with internal forefoot bootie construction combined with a floating, perforated, high-density foam tongue for fit, breathability and comfort. Additional features of the Horizon FKT’s include lacing that extends further down on the vamp to allow precise tuning during longer races, asymmetrical toe wrap for protection, Charged Foam cushioning for a responsive ride and a molded Ortholite insole.

“Performance, authenticity, innovation and ensuring a great consumer experience are the driving forces behind every product UA produces,” said Lindgren. “Our footwear design, development and product teams executed the vision, were extremely committed to proving and testing the product concepts and bringing the series to our consumer. We are very excited to get these shoes on trail with a broader audience and unveil the Series at Outdoor Retailer.”
