There are few footwear companies that can stand up Under Armour when it comes to training apparel. Whether you’re looking for scientifically charged midsoles, geometry, or construction, they’ve proven time and time again that the key to athletic prowess lies in the approach — a mindset readily illustrated by the brand’s newly announced UA HOVR Training Shoe.
The UA HOVR are more than your average, everyday trainer — they’re an intellectual endeavor that’s somehow found its way into the footwear realm. With advancements like “zero gravity HOVR technology,” which maintains energy return and helps to eliminate impact during heavy use, all the way to an “Energy Web” that utilizes compression mesh to reciprocate the force you put into each and every stride, the HOVR are a transcendental addition to any guy’s athletic repertoire. A lightweight mesh upper, layered support, and a unique UA Tribase system that maximizes ground contact (and promotes natural motion) are also included, making Under Armour’s latest release seem more like a quintessential, all-in-one model, and less like a bespoke training variant. The UA HOVR are available now via Under Armour’s website for $140.
