When you hear about a new athletic shoe being released by Under Armour, your mind immediately wanders to vivid illustrations of court-bound basketball players, cross-training athletes, and track runners. In an attempt to expand upon their wide-ranging lineup of sportswear, the renowned brand has announced the release of their fresh new Syncline shoes — an aggressively styled pair of fishing companions that were built for the riverbed.
The Syncline have a look all their own, but what’s most interesting is the hodgepodge of separate technical fabrics and textiles that were used to create these exemplary shoes. A dual-layer mesh upper combines with welded TPU overlays for exceptional durability, support, and water drainage, accompanied by strategically placed ports and an L6 BOA lacing system that keeps the shoes locked in place while you’re traversing variable aquatic environments. Charged cushioning in the heel of the Syncline helps to absorb sudden impact, while a lugged rubber outsole and lightweight EVA foam ensure the highest traction possible on a number of slick outdoor surfaces. The shoes are available now on Under Armour’s website for $110.
