Pacino “Chino” Braxton tackles the rough roads in this exclusive UA Valsetz.
The Under Armour Story:
Offering unbeatable support and comfort is just one way to describe Under Armour’s longest-tenured tactical boots– and Pacino “Chino” Braxton agrees.
Chino, a 21-year-old West Baltimore native and motocross athlete, has already overcome great adversity. Today, he is determined to do good and uplift his community, and has recently joined the Under Armour Sportstyle category as a Pioneer.
“It feels good coming from where I grew up to be an influence for the kids and to show them there’s another way out,” said Chino, “I turned my craft into a lane. If I can do it, they can, too.”
His first initiative includes partnering with B360 Baltimore to provide youth with a vision of success and a path forward. The organization utilizes STEM education programming to help fight the cycle of poverty. Chino will donate a customized bike on Charity Network’s Charitybuzz platform, with all proceeds benefitting B360.
Chino is featured as the face of two limited-edition colorways of the UA Valsetz – black/metallic silver and metallic silver/black. Pairs are available now for $125 on UA.com and the 25 DTLR locations across the DMV area. Photography for the retail campaign was captured in West Baltimore by heralded Baltimore photographer Devin Allen.
