Great shoe

I enjoyed all of the performance tech in these shoes. They do make you feel that you can be faster. The fit is right what I expect from UA. My one complaint is my pairs insoles squeak. I run with headphones so its not a huge deal. But the neighborhood knows when I am heading their way.

Better than I thought!!!

I've been running for a few years with ongoing calf and hip pain. The Hovr Machina has helped me to run better and without pain. The ongoing coaching tips as I'm running is fantastic. Helped with my cadence and my stride. Great buy!

These shoes made me a runner

I purchased these shoes just before the pandemic and I bought them purely for looks. I tried getting into running before, but after longer runs I hurt in my legs and lower back. I could definitely feel the fatigue after a run. I started running in these just to get out of the house during quarantine. I was immediately surprised how comfortable they were. After my first several runs I had no fatigue or pain so I kept running. Now after 8 weeks I have 120+ miles on these shoes and they still feel as good as the first run. The Map My Run integration has been awesome in helping me improve my form and knowledge to help me start hitting those longer distances. The shoes are firm enough that I don't feel like I am walking on a pillow, but soft enough to that I don't feel the pavement underneath my foot . I highly recommend these to anyone looking to get into a running routine. I look forward to my next 120 miles. Let's hope they're just not under quarantine still!


I wear a 9.5. It's been 4 years since I've worn an UA shoe and when I recently bought mine I was debating between a 9.5 to a 10 because the one I wore 4 years ago was a 10. If you're shopping for UA shoe in general try a half size up. I wear mine strictly for running and it's average. Nothing spectacular about it. The cushioning is ok though, I will give credit there.

Great shoe, but the blue tooth wouldn't connect

Love the shoe, but if you pay this amount, the blue tooth better work. That's why I gave it a one star. Will probably send them back for a refund

Perfect running shoes.

The best running shoes I have owned, perfect for sprints and long distance. No bedding in needed. Had a slight problem with a piece of fabric rubbing against my foot. But abit of adjustment with the sole and it was okay. Would advise anyone to buy these, especially if you use the ‘’ map my run’ app.

Too tight in to toe box area

I really wanted to like these shoes. I have worn UA running shoes for many years. The issue with these shoes are in the toe box area. They are too tight for my feet. Some reviews stated that the left foot was too tight and irritating their pinky toe. In my case, both shoes boxes were too tight. I am returning the shoes since it appears that their will be no chance for them to stretch out based on other reviews. Too bad because I really liked the shoes.

Great show if it works for your foot

This seems to be a very soft and responsive running shoe. It will be an excellent shoe for many people sadly it destroyed my left foot . Killed my outer foot just below pinky toe and felt like I was getting jabbed with sharp plastic on my inner sole . Wanted them to work since they are a good looking shoe and my right foot felt amazing . Be a great shoe for tempo or longer slower road runs . Sadly these will be going back . Oh and I wear size 10 in almost all running shoes and if I ordered these again I would go a half size up for sure .

comfortable short distance ride

light weight fast great for shorter/faster runs durability could be a question over the long haul

Not even close to worth it!

I bought these shoes because I was intrigued by the technology. I can not remember ever spending this much on a pair of running shoes, so I mulled it over for awhile. I have run over 80 miles in them so I have given them a decent chance but they are causing my left foot some increasing discomfort right along the outer edge near my pinky toe. The left one is just too tight and has not relaxed any since I got them. The tech is OK when it works properly. I get the cadence and stride information but the workout does not mirror to my apple watch since I started using the bluetooth enabled shoes (was never problem before). I can get it to work if erase both apps from my phone and watch, turn both off and restart, but it only works one time and then back to no mirroring. Long story short, I am going back to my older, less expensive, more comfortable shoe brand.
