  • Under Armour took it easy on the updates in the Scorpio 2. What is most evident is the removal of the honeycomb mesh with a mesh that is flatter and with smaller, but countless holes. In essence, it retains the breathability of the original shoe, but this makes the upper far more durable. It also helps that the tongue of the latest model is heavily perforated.
  • The round laces are gone and replaced by flat ones with more texture. Under Armour chose these laces as a nifty handle when tying. The texture will hold the laces from start to finish.
  • Enhancing the shoe’s practical use is the new reflective logo, which is essential for low-light areas. Additionally, the detailing is much crisper for enhanced aesthetic appeal to an already cool design.

The fit is unlike the original model, which was average throughout. This is slightly smaller and may just be ideal for those who love their fit to be really snug. Runners should be assured that there is still enough room from the heel to the forefoot. The toe box has ample space for the toes to splay as well.


The outsole looks like oversized cleats of baseball with a blend of carbon and blown rubber. This combination of carbon and blown rubber is a proven method of delivering durability and traction in the outsole.


The midsole is the domain of Under Armour’s Micro G midsole for lightweight and responsive cushioning. It is a midsole padding that is also known for its shock-absorbing features.

A TPU shank in the midsole provides the main stability feature of the Scorpio 2.


The upper is a combination of synthetic overlays and mesh. They combine to provide support and exceptional breathability.
