This growth is the direct result of our enhanced design and innovation, including new and improved HeatGear Sonic Baselayer and the attention-grabbing UA Alter Ego line, featuring iconic superheroes such as Batman and Superman. Our Youth product is stronger than ever and we continue to see traction with our expanded Women's lines in Studio and ArmourBra. Momentum is also evident in Footwear with solid sell through of our latest product in the running platform, Spine Venom."
