Under Armour HOVR Infinite Review

The latest long distance road shoe from Under Armour is proper!

 

I’ve had these bad boys for a few months now, having received the first connected pair in SA pre-launch. I didn’t waste any time and my first run was the Sundowner 10km race where I tried to go flat out.

Granted, these shoes weren’t meant to go fast, but to go loooooong… and that is what they do best.  

 

Here are my thoughts about the Under Armour HOVR Infinite road running shoes:

 

 

WHAT WORKED

  • Energy return cushion that is not too soft
  • Upper that is breathable and great for long runs
  • Connected shoe really works. At first I thought it was a gimmick, until I ran without my phone or GPS watch and the metrics were spot on!

 

WHAT NEEDS WORK

  • Toe box narrows and becomes uncomfortable on long runs, I suggest you take a size up on these

 

THE VERDICT

This is a great shoe and I believe Under Armour deserves more kudos for this shoe than they are currently getting. Forget the same old brands that are noted as the best for long distance shoes because we have a serious contender here and definitely worth checking out.

 

– Peace
