I don't care what shoe company we use, but I have never been able to wear a Nike.

Nikes are about the only shoe that seems to fit me correctly. Just goes to show that shoes have distinctive construction for certain types of feet, mostly width vs length. Just my own impression...

Universal is a relatively big client for Under Armour. As long as the connection with Universal and MSU is as strong as it is, I can't see Nico being a big enough deal to swing that the other way. Plenty can change in the next 4 years though. I could see UA going the way of Reebok in that amount of time, but if they're still as strong in 2023 as they are now, I'm guessing they will have cut further into Nike's market share and will be a force.

In football I think UA's quality of apparel/equipment is on par with Nike--I feel bad for the bball kids though--UA's shoes are nowhere near where Nike is.

Totally agree. I think UA has stepped up their game in every area. When I was first an AD I wouldn't buy anything from them, then the last couple years it got to where they were at comparable in quality to anything Nike did (if not better for certain things), and Universal had the buying power where they could pass savings along to schools. BUT I always thought it was a good thing I wasn't buying basketball shoes. Almost 3/4 of NBA players wear either Nike or Jordan. Less than 5% wear UA and that's not marketing--that's just a better product.
