Under Armour had a huge week thanks to their signature star athlete Steph Curry winning the NBA’s MVP. The brand showcased a new MVP colorway of his first signature sneaker and we can only imagine how stoked the brand is that their investment in Steph payed off, and so quickly at that. The Air Jordan 11 Low “Citrus” plans on returning this summer, something to get excited about if you can fit into a size 9.5 Men’s or smaller. There’s plenty to catch up on, so be sure to check out more of the Top Stories of the week below.
