HOVR Had Me Floating

Super impressed by this shoe! More comfortable than a Hoka One One, (which is made for comfort for folks over 200 lbs.) Plus the wireless integration of the shoe with the free Map My Run app combined with the coaching tips on cadence and stride length to boot and the HOVR technology had me floating on a pocket of air. Strong work UA!


These shoes are strikingly gorgeous! But they fail when it comes to comfort. They are overly firm but they are very airy. I prefer the Gemini 2 when it comes to comfort. All and all these are gorgeous. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]


The shoe runs a half size to small. First UA shoe I got not true to size. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Excellent 2nd Gen Shoe!

As a big fan of the original Hover Sonic, I was quick to buy the Hover Sonic 2 this season and I was not disappointed! The shoe is incredibly comfortable, with improved support and comfort along the bottom of the achilles tendon. It has even better shock absorption than the original and it's very lightweight. Where it falls short, like the original, is lateral support. If there is a slight change in the lateral grade of your running surface, then your foot will travel to the side quickly and the ankle can turnover. My first run with the shoe was yesterday, at a distance of 6 miles. It was THE most comfortable "break-in" for shoes I have ever had. I highly recommend this shoe!

The HOVR Sonic’s were recommended to me by a friend. Fit is great and true to size. I have a wider foot and these still feel great. I needed more comfort for longer runs, as I usually wear a more minimalist shoe for training, and these did exactly that. Bluetooth feature is helpful. The shoes are light despite more cushioning. Product itself looks to be made well - no weird tabs of rubber or foam, extra pieces of thread sticking out or coming undone. Great looks for casual wear, too.

Very comfortable

I have been a loyal UA customer for their running shoes since the Original Gemini. My Gemini series went away and I was disappointed, but I have been holding to all my 5 pair of Gemini’s for the longest. Tons of miles on them and finally I have to retire them. This is when I come across the Sonic 2. Great shoe, very comfortable with a lot of cushion and light weights. The drop is 8mm so be aware of that. The top of the shoes is very comfortable unlike other brands that have a lot cushion but that particular feature they lack. Haven’t test them on a long run yet, but so far so good in 10K. Highly recommend this shoe.

Great Shoes for Running

These shoes were awesome right out of the box. Easily one of the most comfortable pairs of shoes that I have ever owned, and very fairly priced. The fit is spot on, and the shoes take a lot of shock away from the feet and knees when you run. If that weren’t enough, the HOVR connect technology is mind blowing! It actually connects your smartphone and your shoes using Bluetooth. This allows the shoes to analyze your run, and send reports and tips on how to maximize your efficiency, straight to your phone. It’s amazing technology. I just received my shipment for my 2nd pair of them. These shoes are so comfortable that I just ran a 3.1 mile race with a brand new pair straight out of the box with no breaking in period. I highly recommend these shoes. I will be ordering another pair soon!

These shoes are the next level

These shoes are amazing and really take running to another level. I am happy to have them. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]


The HOVR line is my new go to for shoes. Can’t beat the fit, performance, and price on these. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
