PROS: Performance-ready sneakers at an affordable price point
CONS: Styles are better suited for gym; not as street-savvy as other brands
TAKEAWAY: Solid alternative if you don’t want same shoes as everyone else
Under Armour is finally giving Nike and Adidas (the reigning kings of footwear) a much-overdo run for their money. The activewear brand has seen incredible growth since they were founded 22 years ago, and now they’re poised to take a serious piece of the footwear industry.
Under Armour is doing this by making sneakers that deliver high-end performance and cutting-edge style at a price that’s more competitive than Nike or Adidas. Check out or recommendations below for the best Under Armour sneakers you can buy right now.
1. UA Micro G Pursuit
This running shoe is great for beginners or seasoned marathoners who like a balanced, cushioned feel on the road and track. But the sneaker’s modern double panel look can also be worn with everyday clothing like chinos, jeans, and tees.
2. UA Micro G Pursuit 4E
Under Armour’s Pursuit also comes in a trendy all-black colorway that’s available in 4E sizes. It offers another great way to inject some style into your go-to running shoe, and comes with a very reasonable price tag.
3. UA HOVR Sonic Connected
Look stylish, run comfortably, and track your performance with these futuristic Sonic connected sneakers. Along with connecting to your smartphone to provide fitness tracker capabilities, the running shoes feature HOVR technology to provide a zero gravity feel and a breathable, fast-drying microfiber construction.
4. UA Highlight Delta 2
Under Armour nailed the designer sock-sneaker look with this Delta 2 running shoe. Of course, the unique design also offers a performance boost, providing a snug fit and extra support.
5. UA HOVR Phantom Team
If you’re into the recent colorful sneaker trend (that’s poised to dominate summer), we recommend these Under Armour Phantom Teams. Unlike some bright sneakers, these have a futuristic design that works perfectly with the bold color. Try them with minimal athleisure-wear on the weekends this summer for a unique, relaxed look.
