Whether you’re lining up another marathon or just starting a couch to 5K plan, there is a shoe for you – this guide will help you find the right one.
Recognising that every runner is different with a unique set of needs, Under Armour has today released its full suite of high-performance running shoes built on the UA HOVR™ cushioning platform. The fact that every step/stride has the impact of at least 2-to-4 times a runner’s body weight drove them to develop a solution that would absorb the impact and return that energy for extra bounce. Th result is a new technology that makes every stride feel light and effortless, ultimately propelling the runner forward.
With tracking tech being so important these days too, every single one of their high-performance running shoes is digitally connected, allowing the runner to seamlessly connect their shoe to the MapMyRun™ app, unlocking access to the runner’s performance data and personalised coaching.
Having the proper footwear is paramount for all runners – whether someone is a professional runner competing at the highest level, or a new runner buying their first pair of run shoes to train for their first 10K. Taking care of the body is a necessity, and Under Armour’s new suite of UA HOVR run shoes are designed with that in mind.
So read below and set yourself up with a new pair of kicks. Then learn How To Run The Right Way with some useful tips.
The UA HOVR Infinite is the foundation and anchor of the UA HOVR Run footwear suite. As a neutral cushion, plush balanced-trainer, the shoe is called the UA HOVR Infinite because it was created for distance training, and to provide the runner with a consistent underfoot feel through an infinite number of miles. Under Armour set out to design and build an ultra-performance shoe that would meet the demands and needs of goal-oriented runners. Every detail was considered to provide more comfort and more support. RRP: $200.00 AUD
The UA HOVR Guardian is a stability shoe named for its unique ability to help manage over-pronation. With DNA similar to the UA HOVR Infinite, the UA HOVR Guardian is built for long distance training. RRP: $220.00 AUD
The UA HOVR Velociti 2 is a tempo trainer, providing the runner a smooth, light and snappy ride. The shoe is an evolution from the original Velociti model and has been updated with the HOVR cushioning platform. RRP: $200.00 AUD
The UA HOVR Sonic 2 is the perfect blend of cushion and flex, and is all about the smooth and easy ride. Feature updates from the original HOVR Sonic include an enhanced cushioning of the tongue for more lockdown over the top of the foot. RRP: $180.00 AUD
The UA HOVR Phantom SE is the “sport edition” of the Phantom Series that features improved breathability and a more anatomically shaped collar, while maintaining the luxury ride feel of the plush 3D molded foot-bed and midfoot structure. RRP: $200.00 AUD
