The city of Portland is undoubtedly the epicenter of the athletic apparel/footwear world, and Under Armour’s latest move in the buzzing city definitely helps their case in putting up a stronger fight against Nike. According to Biz Journals, UA will lease the former YMCA building that boasts 70,000 square-feet of space; this is about five times the size of their current location in the General Automotive Building. UA experienced its best year yet in footwear sales, amassing $431 million in 2014 (14% of their revenue), but in comparison, Nike pulled in $16.2 billion in the same year. As Under Armour continues to grow, will the percentage of their revenue from footwear increase?
