Facts

Hit the court in style and comfort with these low-top basketball shoes from Under Armour. The UA Anatomix Spawn 2 Low provides lightweight structure and conforms to the shape of your foot with its interwoven layers of flexgear. A cored out Micro G midsole offers added flexibility and energizes your every step.

Cushion. The Under Armour Anatomix Spawn 2 Low features a full-length Micro G foam that rebounds heel-strike energy for quicker takeoffs. The low-profile Micro G midsole is cored out to remove bulk and allow more natural flexibility. UA also equipped these basketball shoes with a molded Micro G sockliner for enhanced cushioning.

Traction. The outsole features a blend of textured rubber and herringbone pods that deliver enhanced traction when you need it.

Length and Width. These UA basketball sneakers reportedly fit snug. Going up half a size is recommended if you prefer having some toe space.

Lockdown. To keep the foot from rolling during quick movements, these Under Armour basketball shoes feature a full-length TPU shank that wraps up the lateral sidewall. The molded Micro G sockliner also helps lock the foot in place.

Acting like an on-court armor, interwoven layers of flexgear provide lightweight structure by conforming to the shape of the foot and working with the muscles, tendons, and ligaments.

Reinforcement along the forefoot, heel, and eye stays add durability while exposed mesh areas provide superior breathability.

These anatomically designed basketball shoes feature a low-top cut that provides pure comfort and keeps your foot supported all game long.

Just like its high-top counterpart, the Under Armour Anatomix Spawn 2 Low also comes in eye-catching hues.
