Sports equipment company Under Armour has opened its biggest store in the Middle East in The Dubai Mall, spanning 1,300 sqm.

The store will incorporate various features. It includes a 3D foot scanner that offers customers the ability to see a comprehensive 360-degree scan of their foot using AI technology. Using this technology, staff members can recommend shoes based on the specific requirements of the customer.

The store will also include exclusive apparel from brands such as Project Rock, Iso-Chill Running and Training gear and Under Armour fitness for adults and children.

The app includes form analysis as well as tips to improve running performance.
