- The well-cushioned, but responsive ride of the Highlight Delta stems from the proprietary midsole foam from Under Armour. It is a dual-layered design that mixes a soothing platform with enough responsiveness for long and easy runs or high-mileage training at a moderately fast clip.
- A unique sight in this shoe is the ribbed ankle collar, which covers the comprehensive and molded heel cup. While the heel cup wraps the foot in security and stability, the snug comfort from the cushioning and ribbed design makes running, even more comfortable.
- The seamless upper provides excellent breathability and supportive ride. It is lightweight and hugs the foot well. The upper helps the natural movements of runners and gives a second skin fit.
Under Armour’s Highlight Delta offers an average fit to runners. The sizing also runs true in this shoe. Runners should generally be able to get their most comfortable zone in this shoe. It has respectable hold in the heel and the midfoot. The forefoot has a little extra room for a very comfortable splay of the toes
The Highlight Delta has an almost flat surface in the outsole for more stability and better ground contact. There is the usual mix of hard rubber in strategic areas that are prone to impact and blown rubber is located in most of the underfoot for better traction. Delivering that much-needed flexibility are the deep flex grooves in the outsole. The lateral and medial sides of the outsole feature unbroken rubber for a better transition from landing to take-off.
Under Armour’s Charged Cushioning is used in the midsole. It is a dual-layered design where the softer foam lies on top of the firmer version. As the runner lands, the softer cushioning takes the impact while the firmer foam gives the shoe enhanced responsiveness.
The upper looks very refined and sophisticated as it is quite glossy. Giving the shoe sufficient breathability is the breathable mesh. The shoe is as breathable as the Highlight Delta 2.
Under Armour’s calculated placement of printed overlays provides lightweight support in the upper. An interior, molded heel counter keeps the run stable. The ribbed ankle collar design adds comfort. A removable insole contributes to the cushioning and support.
