Who is it for? The Under Armour model caters to those who are on the hunt for stylish yet functional footwear that works well on different courses and weather.
Why is it good? Several technologies particularly stand out for the UA HOVR Drive Woven:
- The woven upper provides breathability, yet it repels water to protect the golfer's foot.
- The HOVR midsole adds a responsive twist on every step and swing.
- The spiked outsole keeps the bottom securely locked in on the ground despite different elevations and ground conditions.
Power through the grip. The latest addition to the Under Armour utilizes Rotational Resistance and Softspike Silver Tornado cleats. They add balance to the stance despite the unnatural movement that comes with the pressure of the swing. The bottom keeps the foot grounded for both vertical and horizontal movements and ensures a smooth swing from backswing to follow through.
Holler for HOVR. Just like other brands like Nike and Adidas, Under Armour jumped into the bandwagon of releasing a midsole technology that offers a cushioned and responsive ride. It is wrapped with a compression mesh Energy Web, which helps the foam not lose its shape. It also absorbs impact and offers all-day comfort because of the dual-durometer footbed.
The New Kind. The Under Armour HOVR Driven Woven is covered with an HD Woven upper. Do not let the woven upper intimidate into thinking that it only is appropriate footwear for playing under the sun. It is equipped with UA Storm to allow golfers to brave the storm and more because of the waterproofing protection that it provides.
Secure fit. Aside from the upper material that embraces the foot into comfort, an integrated lacing system is also embedded in the design. It guarantees that keeps the foot locked for a no-slip swing.
Fans of this footwear would be familiar with the sleek yet athletic construction that Under Armour attributed to the brand. For the Woven version, the upper is covered with textured material, giving a unique accent and look to the usual leather footwear.
- This Under Armour version is given a two-year waterproofing warranty.
