Will the RED color shoe be released in a size 7???

Great shoes best for snappy 5-10km but capable of more.

I have been using these shoes since April and have put around 200km on them. I have found the fit to be just right, UK size 10 in almost all shoes and these have been very comfortable even from the first run. I find they work very well in short quick runs, thanks to the single carbon plate they feel very springy. I have done up to half marathon distance in them and they are still comfortable for that - although I probably wouldn't take them any further. I have them paired to my Samsung smartwatch (even without my phone) - live cadence data is very helpful. The coaching tips from the map mapmyrun app are a little basic but appreciated. They are probably very useful for new runners. I love the colour - the 'red' is much more of a neon pink/orange but it won't be for everyone! TLDR: Great versatile running shoe, best for short runs with good feedback from smart devices.

Amazing

Best running shoes I had so far, very confy and good performance.

Disappointing

I really wanted to like these shoes. The appearance and the features on paper sounded great. But after trying really hard to give them a shot (I have put about 100 miles on them), I just don't like them at all. The first thing is the fit. I find them really tight which is a first in shoes for me. I traditionally have narrow feet and usually my only issue is that the shoes feel sloppy. Not the case with these. My feet feel cramped and uncomfortable. For context I currently run in pairs of Altras, Hokas, Sauconys, and Salomons (when I'm not using the UAs) and do not have this issue in any of those other shoes. The second issue is the performance. I expected a shoe that was plush enough for long runs, but still responsive. Instead I find them to be heavy and firm to the point of feeling clunky. Again, I run in a lot of different shoes with different levels of cushioning and responsiveness and I have been able to comfortably adapt to all of those. The Machinas just have not broken in in a way that I feel comfortable running more than a few miles in them at a time. The last thing is that I can see how UA is attempting to compete in the market with the rest of the shoe companies utilizing carbon fiber plate technology. Where they missed the mark is that they tried to create a daily running shoe where those others are more light weight trainers and racing shoes. In doing so, they made a shoe that is not a great daily trainer and not a shoe you can race in. Like I said, I really wanted to like this shoe because I like so much of the other things that UA does (the Tribase Reign is one of the best shoes I've ever used for the gym), but the HOVR Machina just does not work for me and is not worth the hefty price tag. Wish I could have that money back for UA running apparel instead.

Heerlijke schoenen

Mooie, stevige schoenen. Maat valt klein. Ik zou zeker een halve maat groter bestellen. Prestatie kan ik nog niks over zeggen

Great shoes, watch measurements

As a running shoe, these are great—comfortable, firm cushioning, stable, and good both for distance and speed. The problem is that its distance measurements are long by about 8%. I sensed it at first on routes I have done forever, when I’d get to the end and the app said I had gone longer than usual. And I confirmed it just now on a track—the shoes and app measured a mile about 120 meters too early. I figured out how to recalibrate them and we’ll see if it works—I’m hopeful, and otherwise very happy with these.

Lasted under 150 miles

The shoe is extremely comfortable. However, after 50 miles I noticed the soles of the shoes where wearing down to the point that there was no more grip left on them. Around 100 miles, it was down to the propulsion plate. For the price of these shoes I would not recommend them.

Great Shoe - Sole Wears Quickly

The shoe is very comfortable and performs well. At 250 miles the sole of the shoe was gone and into the foam. Would expect to get closer to 300 miles before the sole wears out.

Very good product

Very comfy running wear. Good quality shoe too and lightweight.

Great shoes overall

Great running shoes. Definitely worth the money and would definitely recommend!
