Updates to Under Armour Charged Reckless
- The Under Armour Charged Reckless is a neutral running shoe that’s created to encourage the foot’s natural motion. It doesn’t have a lot of layers or components on its façade, therefore making the stride more enabled and energized. Such a design also caters to the modern tastes of contemporary runners. This model is available in many color schemes.
- The upper unit of this running shoe makes use of a mesh that resembles woven fabric. This lightweight material is soft and agreeable to the movements of the foot. It also allows air to enter the shoe in order to keep the foot cool and dry. A thin overlay system is stitched onto the mesh, and it helps the upper in keeping the foot in place.
- Two foam technologies are at work in the Under Armour Charged Reckless. They provide reliable underfoot cushioning to the foot of the runner. One of them handles the impact shock during the landing phase of the gait cycle. The other one delivers a springy underfoot experience that’s comfortable and long-lasting.
- The outsole unit of the Under Armour Charged Reckless features durable rubber. It is placed strategically on its surface. It provides protection for the mid-sole, shielding it from wear and tear. It also gives sure surface traction. It is anatomically designed to allow the foot to move naturally. There are grooves in this area, as well, and they make the platform more flexible.
Under Armour Charged Reckless size and fit
The Under Armour Charged Reckless has a standard running shoe length. Runners are able to get the correct size when choosing this model. The available width for both the men and women’s versions is medium. The semi-curved shape of this shoe adheres to the natural curve of the human foot.
Durable rubber is anatomically placed in the external sole unit of the Under Armour Charged Reckless. It’s designed in such a way that it resembles the pattern of the foot-pad. It protects the mid-sole from wear and tear. It also makes sure to prevent slips and slides because of its traction-capable nature.
Flex grooves allow the sole unit of this shoe to move in tandem with the wearer’s foot. The toe-off benefits more from this design because it is the phase that requires more forefoot flexibility.
Two mid-sole technologies are at work in this shoe. The Charged Cushioning® foam is placed right underneath the foot. It delivers reliable underfoot cushioning and it attenuates impact when landing the foot on the ground.
The Micro G® foam is a more responsive foam that moves along with the foot. It delivers cushioning and enables the foot to toe-off more proficiently because it has a springy nature.
A full-length sock liner made from Ethylene vinyl acetate adds a bit more cushioning to the immediate underfoot. It’s comfortable and long-lasting.
Lightweight mesh is used for the upper unit of the Charged Reckless. It provides breathable support because of its open construction. Air easily enters the fabric and keeps the foot cool and dry.
Thin synthetic overlays assist the upper fabrics in hugging the foot. They’re connected to the lacing system, so whenever the shoelaces are adjusted, so do they. It’s an effective way to make the cover system more customizable and attuned to the preferences of the wearer.
A structured heel cup holds the rear of the foot in place and prevents it from moving in the shoe. It also averts unwarranted shoe removals when running.
