Who should NOT buy the Flow FUTR X from Under Armour

Given how comprehensively the UA FUTR X has been designed, it's not surprising that it suits every player out there. There are a few exemptions, though: players who mind materials that feel cheap and those who value impact protection above all else. These players are better off with basketball shoes with lots of cushioning such as the Nike LeBron 19 or Joel Embiid's first signature kicks.

Those with narrow feet may find that this shoe has too much idle space. They are better off with the Under Armour Curry 9.

You can never go wrong with the Flow FUTR X's traction

The outsole and the pattern on it were directly lifted from the Curry 8, and it's just amazing. There will be no slipping and your feet will surely be securely planted on the floor when you do blocking postures. Making this shoe even greater is the fact that it is somewhat resistant to dust; slightly dirty courts are not going to be a problem.

Support was never a problem!

The materials, though admittedly not the most premium, really did a great job in keeping the foot in its place. The midfoot strap also delivered additional lockdown.

You won't really have to worry about your foot being wobbly or totally slipping out of the footbed when wearing the FUTR X.

All-day comfort? you get it!

The Under Armour FUTR is made of materials that ensure all-around comfort. It can even be worn for the whole day without much issue. The fact that this shoe also has style makes it even more wearable.

Wide-footers, the UA FUTR X is here for you

The base is wide and the upper materials have a lot of give, so wide-footers can be comfortably accommodated. It must be noted here that because of material stretch, the shoe gets roomier and roomier as time passes. But this should not be a source of serious concern because this can be easily remedied by wearing thick socks. 

The UA Flow FUTR X has a lot of court feel but not much impact protection

The Flow cushion in the midsole is firmer than the one implemented in the Curry 8. Hence, it offers a lot of court feel but less compression. Smaller guards who want to be quick on their feet will enjoy this setup.
