As if my wife isn’t already giving me the side eye due to all the money going out to games this month, Under Armor goes for the jugular and reveals these sneakers. Developed in collaboration with New York Knicks Point Guard Dennis Smith Jr., the new sneakers are a limited-edition colorway of the UA Anatomix Spawn. With Mortal Kombat 11 launching next week, the sneaker was designed to embody MK series veteran Sub-Zero who happens to be Dennis’ favorite character.
“When I’m playing, I imagine myself as Sub-Zero on the court, ice cold and always ready to compete. This custom colorway of the UA Anatomix Spawn brings my love for Mortal Kombat and Sub-Zero to life, and I’m excited to share it with players who also share my same gaming passion.”
– Dennis Smith Jr.
Details on the new sneaker from the official press release:
The UA Anatomix Spawn MK11 Sub-Zero colorway features a navy and blue upper – a nod to Sub-Zero’s armored vest – with frozen detailing throughout the upper, lace keeper and translucent icy sole. Mortal Kombat logo hits are on the shoe’s insole, tongue tab and aglets. The Under Armour logo was given a frost outline to pay tribute to Sub-Zero’s ability to deliver the most bone-chilling fatalities in an instant, the same way Dennis leaves opponents frozen as he jumps out of the gym for a monster slam.
“Being a basketball fan myself, it’s exciting to partner with Under Armour and Dennis Smith Jr. for the limited-edition MK11 UA Spawn colorway. We have an amazing community so it’s great working with such a well-known brand to bring this Sub-Zero themed sneaker to Mortal Kombat fans.”
– Ed Boon, Creative Director, NetherRealm Studios and Co-Creator of Mortal Kombat
