6 Best Under Armour Basketball Shoes For Men, 40+ Shoes Tested in 2022
With Stephen Curry (UA’s main endorser) winning his 4th NBA Title and the 2022 NBA Finals MPV, the demands for more Under Armour basketball shoes are also growing higher. Yes, there’s a huge correlation between Curry’s enormous success and the brand’s skyrocketing sales.
It was a marriage made in heaven, of course. With Under Armour’s innovative technology and Curry’s generational talent, the potent combination of the two gives the other top rivals – Nike and Adidas – a good run for their money.
For quick reference when looking for a perfect fit, we’ve rounded up 40 of the best Under Armour basketball shoes for men. After testing all the models, we feature our top highlights for different categories depending on overall value, style and budget.
How we test basketball shoes
To determine the top Under Armour models requires strict objectivity. We have to adhere to a stringent protocol to achieve a bias-free and 100% transparency. That means performing rigorous testing in our independent shoe lab and doing on-court performance tests. Here’s exactly our approach:
- We personally purchase all the men’s Under Armour basketball shoes using our own funds. This ensures the validity and objectivity requirement in all of our reviews.
- We bring all the AU shoes to the RunRepeat shoe testing lab where we cut them into pieces. We then examine and measure 30+ parameters of each model such as the energy return, cushioning technology, durability, ankle support, and traction, among many others.
- We do real-world wear tests on the hardcourt and the hardwood to personally experience their actual performance, comfort, and fit moving and running around the court.
- We also consider what other basketball shoe experts and regular ballers are saying about a particular Under Armour shoe.
For the verdict, we go to CoreScore to calculate all the gathered data. A final score or overall rating ranging from 0-100 is given on each Under Armour model, in which we highlight the highest-rated ones.
