Shoe is great, please release an all black version I will literally buy enough pairs for 10 years

Second thoughts

I have worn UA products for the last 10 years. Most all of the shoes have been a solid 4 stars. These shoes right out of the box were uncomfortable. Every pair of running shoes I’ve purchased have been perfect right from the get go. The UA boots fit a little rough at first then break in over time. My fingers are crossed with these sneakers. But it’s been a week of wearing them every day, and they are just all stiff today as the first... honestly I should have spent the extra $20 and went with the next ones up but these were rated one of the top running shoes so far for 2019...

Light, cool, and comfortable

Pro: easy to pair to the app, exceptional comfort, considering the features and full sole they’re light. Cons: Super slippery on a wet tile floor, while they are light for what they are, compared to ultra light running shoes they’re a bit heavy, did I mention they’re slippery?

Uncomfortable on elliptical and treadmill

I was very happy with the looks n design of the shoes but after wearing it to gym i felt discomfort on treadmill and elliptical. Eventually i had to returned the shoes.

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.
