The Hovr Phantom used to be Under Armour’s max-cushion shoe, but the Mega 3 has eclipsed it. This plush trainer features even more midsole foam than the Phantom, along with a new Clone upper. If you want all the padding, the Mega 3 Clone has it. The sole has pronounced toe spring, where the sole curves upward off the ground under your toes, which helps you roll smoothly from landing to toe-off. It’s topped off with a knit upper that boasts good breathability and creates a secure fit. I also love that this shoe boasts a nice and wide toe box that allows your toes plenty of room to splay for added stability. It’s important to note that as a daily trainer, many runners found that this shoe is just a little bit on the bulky side.

The Flow Velociti Elite is the thoroughbred of Under Armour’s running lineup. Designed to compete with elite racers like Saucony’s Endorphin Elite and the Nike Vaporfly, but with Under Armour’s distinctive and ultra-durable material design. Overall, I would recommend this running shoe for those that like to go on nice and easy tempo runs or like to run for long distances. The build of the insanely durable outsole also makes this shoe great for those that have a heavy stride. Not much has changed between the midsole of the Infinite 1 and the 3. As in the first version, the midsole is entirely HOVR foam, and fully connected, with the embedded chip. While limited changes were made to this part of the shoe, it does its job very well, so why fix what isn’t broken? The HOVR remains perfectly plush, without feeling like you’re losing too much energy to the shoe. It’s an ideal ride for that 8 K you have to do after work – when you want to feel like your legs are recovering, not doing too much work. This HOVR midsole isn’t your standard EVA foam. While the inside of this foam is soft and squishy, it is wrapped in something called Energy Web mesh.What I also love about the build of this outsole is that it is insanely durable. Even after 100 miles, runners found that the outsole showed very few signs of wear and tear. It’s the perfect shoe to wear when running for long distances when you need something that is built like a tank.

The underside of the Flow layer has an undulating pattern of grooves that reliably grip the road. And, in standard Under Armour fashion, it’s durable enough to withstand repeated impacts, so the shoe won’t wear down after a few miles, unlike most shoes with exposed midsoles. That means there’s no need for a separate, heavy outsole, which shaves off considerable weight. Under Armour earned a bad rep among runners early on and hasn’t been able to shake it. Today, the most popular complaint with Under Armour’s current shoes is that they’re too firm. I happen to agree with the sentiment, based on the UA shoes I’ve tried over the past year or so, including the Machina 3 Clone and the Flow Velociti Elite. Road running UA HOVR™ trainers like the Sonic 6, Machina 3 or Infinite 5 give your feet serious protection, stride after stride after stride. Trail running and hiking UA HOVR™ shoes protect your feet from harsh surfaces and return energy. UA HOVR™ golf shoes use the system to support the natural motion of your foot during a golf swing, and eliminate impact on your joints. UA HOVR™ trainers for gym sessions use the system to protect you from dynamic leaps, sprints and reps. And just like Under Armour’s other running shoes, the Elite’s Flow midsole is designed to be durable, so there’s no need for a separate rubber outsole. Cutting the rubber out of the design makes the shoe substantially lighter, giving it an edge over racers from other brands (including the Endorphin Elite and the Vaporfly). The ultralight upper on top provides a close wrap around the foot and maximum breathability, so your feet stay cool even when you’re really cranking. Take your sport seriously? You’ll be spending a lot of time in your shoes - so you’re gonna need footwear that lasts. Under Armour HOVR™ is our proprietary midsole system - that’s the part between your foot and the outsole grip that touches the floor. UA HOVR™ trainers give you incredible levels of bounce and energy return, the cushioning maintains its shape way longer than traditional foams, and it’s incredibly durable.

At the end of the day, the Hovr Sonic 6 is a well-rounded shoe for everyday training, especially if you prefer a leaner shoe without a ton of plush cushioning.

With its relatively low weight, tough outsole, and smooth ride, it’s a standout choice for everyday training and walking, too—and you won’t have to spend a fortune to get a pair. Hovr is Under Armour’s latest midsole material, an attempt at a high energy-return foam that’s all the rage in running shoes right now. In this case, UA is using an extremely soft material surrounded by an “energy web,” to give you a soft landing that remains as protective at the end of your run as it did at the start. The brand has visibly called out this tech via cutout windows in the midsole, much like what Nike did in the early days of Air. Gaps of Hovr foam peek out of (and even poke through) cutouts in the sidewall of the firmer carrier foam. And, as always, you can count on Under Armour’s signature durability. I’ve had mine for months, and the outsole rubber shows only minimal wear. While it’s not a supremely bouncy trainer, it has plenty of cushioning and staying power for daily training runs. We’ve built a range of UA HOVR™ trainers for all our most popular sports, and we use it in shoes for men, women and kids.Other brands, like Asics, New Balance, and Hoka, use different midsole materials that create a similarly soft, pillowy feel. Generally speaking, you won’t get that sensation with Under Armour shoes.

The outsole of this shoe is built to conquer just about any type of terrain. It is composed of a full-length rubber outsole with deep grooves that are perfect for road running as well as trails. The grooves are designed to really grip the ground under your feet without feeling too awkward or bulky. Derived from olefin wax, Hovr creates a firm feeling at toe-off, which helps you push hard and maintain fast paces. Under Armour uses Hovr in its training shoes, giving models like the Infinite 5 and Machina Clone 3 a firm, but smooth feel underfoot. The Velociti Wind 2 won praise from RW testers for its surprising durability and grip, and this new, updated design retains those attributes. The shoe still has a full-length layer of Flow cushioning, but it’s tweaked to be even softer and lighter, according to Under Armour. If you love a plush step-in feel, you are sure to fall in love with the feel of the UA HOVR Infinite 3. It is composed of a nice and comfy HOVR midsole material that feels squishy under your feet which makes it perfect for running long distances. While the feel of this midsole is soft, it doesn’t muddy your gait cycle. The price you pay for this protection is extra weight, less breathability and a higher price. However, your feet will thank you on those occasions when the grey clouds gather and the rains come down.Under Armour brings its Hovr cushioning to the trail with the Hovr Speed. As the name implies, it’s designed to be a lightweight, speed-focused model for spirited trail running and racing.
