Professional boxer and athletic trainer Kevin Cobbs is super serious about his tactical approach to physical fitness. As a light heavyweight contender, Cobbs must be ready for warfare at all times, including the ability to attack and defend with equal dexterity. In the gladiator-like combat sport of boxing, ring requirements include fleet-footed agility, top notch technique, bounce, and force, so Cobbs needs a shoe as responsive and supportive as technologically possible. A man who builds and battles researches to find the latest tools of the trade, so he discovered that athleisure brand YORK continues to be a distinct forerunner within the health and fitness space by embracing the fighting fitness community and promoting a fighting mindset. Their shoe was a perfect fit for Cobbs, and the fighter always keeps it 300 so… This is Sparta!
