Another budget-friendly model has been released by the Under Armour brand. With a lightweight makeup, the shoe delivers a form-fitting feel, doubling down on support and protection.
Cushion. The Under Armour M-Tag Low basketball shoe’s cushioning system is an EVA-based midsole. It is unsurprising that this element is utilized for the creation of this shoe as it is a proven material for shock absorption. The same material makes up the UA M-Tag’s sockliner.
Traction. The rubber outsole features a multi-directional traction pattern. The tread is invented to adapt to multi-directional changes as well as create grip for lateral movements.
Length and Width. The Under Armour M-Tag Low provides a comfortable feel. To enhance the shoe’s fit and add to a secure lockdown, a central lacing system with integrated lace loops is included in the shoe’s design. Bungee cords are used for this mechanism. It is available in men’s standard sizes ranging from sizes 7 to 16.
According to several reviews, the shoe is narrow both vertically and horizontally. This layout may not be ideal for those with wider foot types. Hence, new buyers are advised to visit their local Under Armour store to try on a pair and get the best possible fit before buying.
Lockdown. A lacing system placed at the middle of the shoe allows fit customizability. Its lace hoops are anchored onto both sides of the midsole, ensuring an optimal foot lockdown.
The upper of the Under Armour M-Tag basketball shoe is constructed with a two-tone mesh design. The material compresses the player’s foot while doubling as protection as well as support. To reinforce this, microfiber overlays are also placed in the toe and heel areas.
This low top model’s tongue and heel areas extend up to the ankle area. There is, however, a cutout in the ankle area which follows the natural contours of the foot.
With its futuristic design, the shoe makes a fashion-forward statement on both the basketball court as well as the streets. The shoe can look good when worn together with basketball jerseys, especially with its varied colorways. It can also pass as a casual wear sneaker when paired with a pair of denims or shorts to show off its collared design.
The Under Armour M-Tag Low basketball shoe is available in a number of colorways such as the following:
- Black/Radio Red-001
- Black/Magma Orange -002
- Red/Midnight Navy-600.
