Dwayne Johnson has boasted his Under Armour training shoes are the "greatest ever" designed.

Dwayne Johnson’s first shoes for Under Armour will hit shelves in early 2017.

The WWE star-turned-actor has always been known for his muscular physique, but since quitting the wrestling ring for Hollywood, Dwayne has pumped his frame up even more.

Fitness is high on the 44-year-old’s priority list, so teaming with sportswear brand Under Armour was a natural progression.

“Puttin' in the blood, sweat and respect daily in my NEW @underarmour #RockDelta shoes (prototype),” Dwayne shared on Instagram, along with a video of him engaging in an intense battle rope work out. “Testing out new innovation and technology so by the time I deliver them to you in the 1st QTR 2017, you'll be catchin' fire in one of the greatest training shoes ever designed and engineered. Get ready.. #HardestWorkerInTheRoom #OnlyTypeOfLivingIKnow #RockDelta #NoExcuses *Grind DNA s/o to Dr. Dre', Anderson, .Paak & Marsha Ambrosius for delivering my daily training anthem - "ALL IN A DAYS WORK (sic)."

The video starts from behind, panning round to see Dwayne going for it with the ropes. The black workout shoes feature the words “Earn It” and “Blood, Sweat and Respect” on the tongues.

Dwayne’s Brahma Bull design adorns the back in gold, a reference to Dwayne’s old nickname. The Ballers actor also has a bull tattoo on his right bicep.

Under Armour and Dwayne announced their partnership in January (16), and over the last nine months the Fast & Furious action star has launched a range of clothes and bags, as well as starring in campaigns for the label.
