Under Armour has released five new HOVR running shoes to provide all types of runners with high-performance footwear. There’s a sensor embedded in the midsole of the right shoe that can connect to the MapMyRun app via low energy Bluetooth, unlocking access to metrics and personalised coaching. HOVR runners do not offer wireless music or Apple Pay, so don’t ditch the wearable just yet.
The five new shoes shape Under Armour’s Autumn 2019 footwear range and at its centre is the HOVR Infinite. Created for long-distance running, Infinite is a plush-balanced trainer with a neutral cushion to provide runners with a consistent underfoot feel across an ‘infinite’ number of kilometres. Every detail of the shoe was considered to provide more comfort and more support. HOVR Infinite retails for $200.00 AUD.
Under Armour HOVR Phantom SE
HOVR Phantom SE is the “Sport Edition” of the Phantom Series offering improved breathability and a more anatomically shaped collar while maintaining the luxury ride feel of the plush 3D moulded footbed and midfoot structure – $200.00.
The HOVR Velociti 2 is a tempo trainer, providing a smooth, light and snappy ride. The shoe is an evolution of the original Velociti model and has been updated with the HOVR cushioning platform. It’s available for $200.00.
Under Armour HOVR Sonic 2
Sonic 2 is the perfect blend of cushion and flex. It’s designed for a smooth and comfortable ride. Features have been updated since the original HOVR Sonic such as the enhanced cushioning of the tongue for more lockdown over the top of the foot. $180.00.
Under Armour’s HOVR Guardian is a stability shoe named for its unique ability to help manage overpronation. That being the rolling of the foot arch. Similar to the Infinite, the HOVR Guardian is also built for long distances. This one goes for $220 per pair.
The full HOVR running range is now available in Australia at Under Armour stores, Rebel Sport and online. In other Under Armour news, the American sports brand has partnered with Virgin to design spacesuits for Virgin Galactic astronauts.
