UA Authentic VR3 SF (Michael February) - Shadow
A Sustainability-Conscious Way to Prepare for the Unexpected
Surfing’s romance is not found solely in the act of riding a wave, but in experiencing the communities that surround it. Michael February’s journey of self-discovery in the water is a direct result of the inspiration he finds on land. Inspired by surfing’s connection to art, music, and culture, this timeless collection highlights the beauty you can find when you look beyond the break. For this season, Mikey’s collection is characterized by an assortment of footwear and apparel that harmoniously blend innovation, functionality, and sustainable materials. Featuring uppers made from organic cotton canvas, an outsole that uses natural rubber, and a biobased foam footbed for comfort you can feel good about, the Michael February Authentic VR3 SF sets the scene for a capsule that is as tethered to purpose as it is to Mikey’s core values and unique sense of style.To earn the VR3 Checkerboard globe logo, at least 30% of the product must be made up of one or a combination of recycled, renewable, and/or regenerative materials.
