Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is showing off his upcoming sneaker collaboration with Under Armour. The wrestler-actor took his Instagram followers into “The Wolf’s Den” for a treat in between his workout.
EXCLUSIVE SNEAK PEAK: It’s a good day in footwear. Big s/o to my boy @stephencurry30 for sending me pairs of the new #CurryLux’s. Dope color ways in suede and leather. Droppin’ Aug 13th! Aaaaand FINALLY.. what the world has been waiting for.. a lil’ shoe we’ll call #RocksFIYA for now, ’cause you’ll chase your greatness in them by the only way we know how.. EARNING IT. Been training in these beasts for a year now so by the time they drop to you at the top of 2017 – you’ll know I’ve given my blood and sweat in them and kept it ?. And one more thing.. they’re slightly aggressive. As alphas are.? Blood, sweat and respect. First two we give, last one we earn. #CurryLux #RocksFIYA #GoodDayInFootwear #UnderArmour #BloodSweatAndRespect
First, he had to give a shout-out to Steph Curry, who drops new colorways for the Curry Lux collection next week [August 13, 2016]. Another Under Armour-athlete partnership, Curry’s gift to Johnson came in a royal blue, suede upper with a metallic gold accent—resemble the team colors of the Golden State Warriors. The new Curry Lux sneakers will debut in suede and leather.
Not before long, he ignited anticipation for #RocksFIYA, as he calls them for the moment. He gave an exclusive look at the prototype for his sneaker with the athletics wear company. He said, “Been training in these beasts for a year now so by the time they drop to you at the top of 2017 – you’ll know I’ve given my blood and sweat in them and kept it ?.” An all black upper meets a navy blue midsole. He adds texture with yellow words and geometric pattern.
If his sneakers could talk, they would say, “Chase that greatness” or something aggressive—a conversation The Rock also gives a preview of. Start walking and talking like a wrestler when the #RockFIYA premiere in 2017.
