The challenge, embodying the campaign tagline “Leave ‘Em Guessing,” effectively showcased the boot’s ability to provide a locked-in feel for lightning-fast directional changes.

Eddie Nketiah, a UA Athlete & Arsenal Forward, expressed, “The responsive design of the UA Shadow Elite 2 football boot helps me make those decisive movements on the pitch, taking my game to the next level.

Being transformed into a hologram for the event was a cool experience—and it speaks to the technology and innovation behind each pair of boots. It’s been great to be part of the process of designing the boot, and I can’t wait to see how everyone responds to them.”
