Great workout shoes!

Very comfortable to wear, great fit, high quality shoes. Very happy with my purchase.

Heel shredder.

Although the fit everywhere else is great and good for running support, the fact that the back curves inward so drastically shreds my heels every single time I try to go for a run in them.

I can tell the difference

I just got these shoes and have put about 20 miles on them so far. I switched from the infinite 2’s and can feel the stability.

It's like I found home, DON'T STOP MAKING THESE!

For the past year I've been looking for new running shoes and have tried a number of brands and even a number of UA models. The Guardians were the final HOVR model I tried and they've been incredible. The cushion, support, and comforter are premium! I'm a 215 lb athletic built male and I get great functionally out of these shoes. I no longer get runners knee, nor do my feet ache from overwork. I can successfully have a relaxed workout now and will continue to buy this model as long as they're available. I'd like to be running in the Guardians 20s in 18 years! Thanks UA!

Guardian running shoes

Great fit, true to size, great grip which is what was needed. My son loves them

My first HOVR

Love the data I get with these shoes. Comfort & fit are great too, but I’m a data junkie and love all the numbers I get from the MMR APP.... cadence, stride, foot strike, plus all the coaching tips. Very cool.

Chaussures de running

Excellent chaussures très légère très bon amorti à voir sur la durée

Loving my new trainers!

I selected these shoes after a reasonably basic internet search. I decided to get myself moving again and complete the 'couch to 5K challenge', these trainer are perfect! They are comfortable, easy to run in and I adore the Bluetooth function, they connect to the UA App and off I go, really really good.

Super contento con mi adquisición.

Estoy muy contento porque son super cómodas. Es lo que estaba buscando.

Does the job

I have tried to transition out of stability shoes 3 times over the past 3 years and injure my left inner ankle every time. Therefore, I have to run in stability shoes. They do the job of supporting my inner ankle. The technology works flawlessly. I only wish that the “crash pad” on the outside of the heel was a little softer. Otherwise, it’s a great shoe for the first 15 miles I have put on them so far. Oh... and the black and yellow look really good!
