Verdict from 3 experts and 100+ user reviews

5 reasons to buy

  • Cushion: The HOVR Infinite 3's foam is very plush without forgoing responsiveness and energy return. 
  • Fit: Thanks to the padded collar and form-fitting upper, you get a "locked-down feeling" during your run without the hassle of hot spots. 
  • Toe room: It's wide enough for natural toe splay and for those with bunions. 
  • Durability: After weeks of trying the shoe in unfriendly conditions, experts claim that it still hasn't shown any sign of wear. 
  • Grip: The shoe bites well even on winter and rainy-day runs. 

2 reasons not to buy

  • Heavy: Unlike other daily trainers, it's a bit bulky, which makes it unfit for race or tempo paces. 
  • Constricting: According to wide-footed runners, their foot movements are restricted by the shoe. 

Bottom line

If you're looking for a daily running shoe that can accompany you in your short to long-distance runs, you can rely on the HOVR Infinite 3 from Under Armour. If you want to log serious miles, this is the shoe for you. And if you've been a long-time UA user, it's also a great training companion to the Velociti Wind

It's also worth noting that this shoe is made for easy days. If you want to run with speed, this is not the ideal shoe for you.

Under Armour HOVR Infinite 3 vs. 2: Plusher feel

The HOVR Infinite 3 comes back with an even softer, more comfortable sensation. This is all due to the following changes: 

  • Completely overhauled upper with an added layer of material over the mesh fabric. It's intended to create a more secure foothold but with the same breathability level as the Infinite 2. 
  • The HOVR midsole no longer employs the Charged case. This means that the HOVR foam is much cushier and lighter. 

What is it for?

The HOVR Infinite is designed for easy runs, may they be short or high-mileage efforts. It's a daily trainer that will keep your legs feeling fresh mile after mile. 

Nice to know

Just like other Under Armour shoes, the HOVR Infinite 3 can be connected to the brand's MapMyRun app. It allows you to track your runs and coaches you on how to better your performance based on the data it gathers.
