Who should buy the Under Armour
The third version of the Under Armour Charged Pursuit is a must-have for road runners looking for a:
Who should NOT buy it
Those who want a roomy fit for wide feet, buy the Under Armour HOVR Infinite 3 instead. And if it's a lightweight daily trainer you're after, the Under Armour HOVR Machina 2 won't drag you down.
The UA Charged Pursuit 3 is a home for the feet
This road shoe is "very very very comfortable," as one expert describes it, thanks to its cushy midsole. It's neither mushy nor rigid; it's the perfect in-between. Whether it's for walking, daily runs, all-day wear, and gym training, it pampers the feet.
One of the staunch Under Armour fans who reviewed the shoe mentioned that this is "one of the most " from UA that he's ever owned.
This is especially true for long runs. The Charged Pursuit 3's generous cushioning dampens the impact, keeping the feet and legs feeling fresh after several miles.
This is the case for both medium to narrow-footed runners. The upper wraps snug; some of the comments left by happy buyers were "support is very good" and "it fits the foot in an excellent way."

A long-time UA fan with broad feet, meanwhile, shared that the Charged Pursuit 3 is "a little tighter" than all his other UA shoes.

It's uber breathable; one reviewer mentioned, "I can feel the breeze in my toes." Overall, if you want a well-ventilated running shoe for summer, the Under Armour Charged Pursuit 3 won't disappoint.
It's "very heavy to run" complained one critic. So much so, "I have discarded them," he added. And the reasons behind the shoe's rather hefty weight are the (1) generous cushion and (2) rubber outsole.
The Charged Pursuit 3 clutches the ground
"They are also great running shoes for concrete," a female runner has this to say about the UA Charged Pursuit 3's grip. Even better, she claims that "they do not slip on grass either."
A bang for the buck
At only $70 per pair, more than 90% of the critics find the Under Armour Charged Pursuit 3 a shoe offered at a great price point. Compared to other daily running shoes, which generally retail for $11
