The midsole unit makes use of the Charged Cushioning, one of Under Armour’s proprietary technologies. Two layers of this foam are used in this shoe: a firm one in the heel and a soft in the forefoot.

Steady foot-strike and springy liftoff

This arrangement allows the foot to feel a steady foot-strike and a springy liftoff. A Micro G sockliner is placed right above the primary cushioning unit.

Secure yet breathable coverage

A knitted fabric is used for the upper unit of the Under Armour Charged Escape 2. It is designed to offer a secure yet breathable coverage.
