Joel Embiid recently gave fans a first look at the UA Embiid One “Origin” colorway. Philadelphia 76ers’ big man will rock his debut shoe when the Sixers go head to head against Magic at Disney World this Friday night. Embiid has averaged 32.7 points, 13.7 rebounds and 4.0 assists in the Sixers’ first three seeding games.

Before tip-off, Under Armour shares closer-look photos of the elevated on-court sneaker. The UA Embiid One is loaded with tech. It features UA HOVR™ technology in the heel, offering an energy boost when moving around on the hardwood. Strategic Micro G® cushioning is present in the soles that allows for a quicker first step and more explosive maneuvers getting to the basket. Lastly, the uppers are made with fitted, light-weight mesh for a “locked-in feel” without sacrificing breathability.

When the sneaker was first announced in January, Embiid expressed in an Under Armour press release: “As a kid, I never could have dreamed of being in this situation with my own signature shoe. The process has been incredible with the work that’s been put in. Not a lot of guys in my profession get this opportunity and I’m truly grateful for it. I can’t wait to debut it on the court.”

Get a closer look at the UA Embiid One “Origin” in the slideshow above. The sneaker will release on Under Armour’s website this September 18.

Elsewhere in footwear, Nike unveiled the Space Hippie 01 in a new “Wheat White” colorway.
