UA Basketball reveals Joel Embiid’s debut signature shoe

Joel Embiid has officially picked up the process in Orlando, Fla. The versatile 7-footer has returned to the hardwood in his first signature shoe, the UA Embiid One, designed to elevate any player’s on-court performance—whether in the post or on the perimeter.  

The UA Embiid One is powerful enough for a big man, light enough for a guard, and quick enough to run the court. Here’s a first look at the tech powering Embiid’s signature footwear:

  • MOVE FASTER: UA HOVR™ technology in the heel returns energy to get you where you’re going faster.
  • REACT QUICKER: Strategic Micro G® cushioning keeps your first step and every cut more explosive.
  • FEEL LIGHTER: Layers of fitted, lightweight mesh give you a locked-in feel but total breathability.
