Under Armour and Dwayne Johnson Launch The Project Rock Collection’s Signature Sneakers

The action star is finally releasing his Project Rock 3 training shoes after a delay of several months and his COVID-19 diagnosis.


The shoe is engineered by Under Armour in partnership with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and tested in the Iron Paradise, the actor’s famous home gym. It is designed for comfort and stability, and for those who choose action and progress.

“Today we choose to move forward with focus and with accountability. We appreciate and are inspired by the motivation around us—our loved ones, the first responders, the frontline workers, the parents, the people courageously returning to their jobs in spite of the uncertainty,” Johnson stated. “We lift each other up and we fight on, because progress will only come through the work we put in to achieve it. Onward.”

The texture of the new all-knit upper was inspired by the actor’s approach to training and life: “Embrace The Cracks, They’re Earned.” The knit upper has the added benefit of allowing for maximum breathability during training. It also provides stability by locking the foot in place with an external heel counter to power through every rep.

The Project Rock 3 boasts a combination of Under Armour’s latest innovations, including UA TriBase and UA HOVR technologies that drive pure performance with plush comfort. UA TriBase maximizes ground control and forefoot flexibility, driving explosive plyometric movements. Simultaneously, UA HOVR technology lays a soft and responsive cushioning in the mid sole that provides a comfortable foundation that can withstand Johnson’s heaviest of lifts.

The Project Rock 3 comes in men’s, women’s and youth sizes and can now be purchased on UA website and in select global retailers.
