Under Armour Charged Bandit 6 vs. 5 

If it ain’t broke, bring in a new footbed. And voila! The only change made to the Charged Bandit 6 from Under Armour is its addition of an Ortholite sockliner. This is intended to keep the foot free from odor while adding extra support to prevent strain on the foot. 

Charged Bandit 6: Retaining the essentials

Support: As projected by the name, the Under Armour Charged Bandit 6 utilizes the brand’s Charged Cushioning. This promotes the running shoe’s stability for surefooted, slip-free strides. 

Bouncy cushioning: Again, this is all owed to the Charged midsole foam of the road running shoe which generates enough spring for an energetic ride. 

Breathability and lightness: Utilizing a two-toned mesh upper, the neutral runner maximizes ventilation while minimizing weight.  

The functions of the Under Armour Charged Bandit 6 

Who is it for? Because of the cushioning system of the road running shoe, it is perfect for runners who have neutral gaits and is stable enough for those with overpronation (foot rolls inward). 

What is it for?  It is an excellent match for middle- to long-distance races and training. It can also serve as all-day wear or jogging platform
