Athletic collections that honor pride: Pride Capsule

This year, the Under Armor 2021 Pride capsule is titled “United We Win” and was recently launched. The pieces in the collection are said to have been designed by “[the company’s] LGBTQ + Teammate Resource Group, “also known as UNFIED.

As expected, the Pride capsule features motifs borrowed from the Pride flag. Some of the most interesting pieces – such as the UA Forge RC Pride sneakers, the UA Pride Short Sleeve and the UA Launch SW 7 ” Shorts – stand out with numerous graffiti-like lettering. According to the press release, these designs are inspired by the “original march of Pride in 1970″. RJ Mansfield, UNIFIED Sales Manager, shared that: [They] used everyone’s signs to inspire the print, which is essentially a photo collage of handwritten messages from Pride. ”

A portion of the proceeds from the Pride capsule will benefit the Pride Center of Maryland.
