Not what I expected

I have two pair of the HOVR Sonic 1 shoes and they are my favorite shoes ever. I bought the Sonic 2 expecting the same and I couldn’t be more disappointed. The heel is angled in and up and just digs into you. This shoe is poorly designed and nowhere near as comfortable as the previous version.

Way too Narrow

I can’t even get my foot 1/2 way in the shoe! I would think you’d have wide and extra wide as a choice but you don’t!

It look nice but I don’t see any special about it

I own two pair of under armour shoes. Both seem to cut circulation off to my feet. On my last run I had to run on the gravel in order to stop the tingling in my feet. As soon as I ran on the pavement again the tingling returned. I do not feel any extra cushion only that they are light weight. My other brand runners does not do this.

Step Count broke at 71km

I purchased these shoes specifically for the step count functionality. I am not yet a runner but the tech appealed to me for my walking program. I was having a fun time with my shoes with the daily step count and distance calculator. I was making daily posts about my progress on my WW Connect Account and would tell anyone who would listen about how great my new shoes were, comfortable and how cool the tech was. Then on day 33 into my shoes life I went to check my step count from the day and instead of having near 10,000 steps when my shoes synced to my phone my steps went to zero. Today I tested it again and I did a 2km walk and it did not register my steps. What sucks that it being day 33 it was three days after the 30 day return policy I had with sport check. My shoes are still comfortable and I will still wear them as my daily shoe but my overall experience and joy with my purchase has taken a big hit and next time I will probably get a different brand of shoe and just buy a fitbit for my tracking purposes.

Runs small

I purchased these shoes in hopes of replacing some Brooks Ghost 10 for just goofing around in, but after wearing them for a very short amount of time I knew that it wasn't going to work. The left shoe was uncomfortably snug. I have a pair of HOVR Infinite and really enjoy running in these and had high hopes that I finally could retire the Brooks. Maybe I will get a different style and try again.

Returned product

These shoes aren’t very comfortable. I was looking for a comfortable running shoe and returned these because of how they felt. They felt hard and a little higher on my arch. I love UA, but these didn’t do it for me.

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...

Runs smaller than my sonic 1

Shoe runs smaller than previous sonic I have purchased

Inconsistent fit

The first model of the HOVR fit me perfect at a size 15. The second model runs way small. I’d say a size and a half small. I got a 15 in the second model and it fits way to small. Comfort is awesome. Stride and heel to toe is good. I prefer the laces and smaller tongue of the HOVR 1. Aesthetics are nice on the 2 as well. I wish the sizing was more consistent.

Not as good as the previous version. Sonic 1

As a owner of the first Sonic shoes, these do lack the comfort the Sonic 1's offered. The first Sonics were amazing! the Fit, Hovr cushioning and overall feel. These ones have the same cushioning but the tongue is fatter/more padded so it doesn't feel as minimalistic. The heel counter is unbearable on this shoe, the heel cup digs into your achilles. You may ask, how is that possible? the 2 shoes look almost identical. Well if you compare the shoes side by side, you will see that the Sonic 2 heel is angled more inwards. I suspect that UA designed it this way so you will feel more lock down when you lace up. Unfortunately, this has cost the overall comfort to suffer
