- Staff Review
I have to say I approached these shoes with an element of scepticism, I am never entirely sold whenever I hear a brand say their new technology is going to be ‘the next big thing’, I hear it a lot and more often than not, shoes fall short of expectation, but as all shoe nerds do, I gave the HOVR Infinite a go.
I have run in Under Armour shoes before and have been a big fan of the ‘Charged’ cushioning platform and I was worried that HOVR was going to be completely different and not deliver at the same level of comfort. I am happy to say HOVR is completely different and I love it! Most shoes struggle with the balance of soft and responsive in premium cushioning running shoes but the UA HOVR Infinite delivers. Although there are lighter shoes in the neutral category, few offer the same level of lightweight ride and high end cushioning.
The other brilliant thing about these shoes is they come pre-loaded with a chip that connects to Map My Run, giving you detailed feedback on distance, pace, cadence and much more. What I love is the technology works with or without your phone, just put the shoes on and off you go. I hear a lot of people say ‘I never knew Under Armour make running shoes’, they do and I can tell you, they are awesome.
