Protection and traction on various surfaces

The outsole unit of the Under Armour Charged Escape makes use of a durable rubber compound to provide protection and traction over the surfaces. It has non-prominent nodes and patterns to heighten grip on level ground.

An abrasion-resistant rubber is added to the areas of the outer sole that’s more prone to wear and tear, fundamentally preventing early damage or the adverse effects of continued use.

The flex grooves allow the foot to move more naturally, doling out the flexibility that’s needed during the heel-to-toe transitions.

Charged Escape's efficient impact distribution

A dual-layer Charged Cushioning foam is used as the primary midsole compound of the Under Armour Charged Escape. It is firmer in the heel section, which means that it’s capable of receiving impact shock during the striking phase and dispersing it. The forefoot area is soft, so it enables the foot to toe-off with energy. The Charged cushioning is also used in the Charged Escape 2 running shoe.

A molded Micro G footbed is placed right above the full-length central foam unit. Its purpose is to add a bit more cushioning for the underfoot. It also molds itself to the anatomy of the wearer’s foot, giving structure and specific support to the arch and the other areas that don’t usually receive cushioning.

A seamless coverage for maximum comfort

The upper unit chiefly uses Engineered Mesh. It has the quality and form of woven cloth. It wraps the foot in a secure coverage that’s seamless and sock-like. It’s also breathable; it can accommodate environmental air into the foot-chamber, thereby affording a cool and dry running experience to the wearer.

Synthetic overlays are printed onto the façade. The purpose of these add-ons is to reinforce the structure of the Charged Escape and to help in maintaining a snug and secure wrap. The lack of stitching or extra layers allows it to remain lightweight.

An external heel counter holds the back of the foot in place and prevents it from exiting the shoe accidentally.

A soft fabric lining permits a smooth in-shoe experience that’s free of irritation. Its goal is to prevent instances of skin irritation, blistering or chafing.

The traditional lacing system helps the runner when it comes to securing the foot inside the Under Armour Charged Escape. Its stretchy laces tighten or loosen the fit accordingly.
