Good to know

The low-top Under Armour RailFit TXT is offered in women’s and men’s US sizing. Males could have a pair from 7 to 15 while female’s sizes start from 5 to 11. As per some reviewers, it runs small. They suggested adding at least a half size from the wearer’s normal measurements to get the best possible fit.

A completely customizable fit is made possible by the Railfit lacing enclosure. This system exhibits movable lace loops that move back and forth.  

Bearing a similar silhouette to the original RailFit sneaker, the Under Armour RailFit TXT features a design that could be easily incorporated into one’s lifestyle clothing. The dual-layer mesh and soft foam upper showcases two modest patterns that are separated by the Railfit system. 

With its athleisure silhouette, the shoe works best with sporty get-up. Also, the black and white colorway increases the wearability as it blends naturally with jeans, jogging pants, and shorts.

The Under Armour RailFit TXT has a dual-layer soft foam & mesh upper that delivers optimal flexibility and form-fitting support. It has embedded insole that gives step-in comfort. The rubber outsole has a knobbed texture that provides durability and traction.

Under Armour is recognized by most as one of the top athletic brands, just behind the established industry behemoths Nike and Adidas. Started in 1996 by Kevin Plank, UA has a humble beginning. The moisture-wicking undershirt, the brand’s first product, is the product of Plank’s extensive research on various fabric and its properties. He offered his product in the back of his vehicle. Because of the overwhelming remarks earned from its athlete wearers, Under Armour began to build its name.

After several years, UA reached the point of where the only way is up. From undershirts, the company expanded its product repertoire. Under Armour released soccer shoes, which several marquee NFL players wore and endorsed. The company further elevated its brand by signing an endorsement deal with arguably the most famous and greatest NFL quarterback ever, Tom Brady. Later, another A-list athlete, Steph Curry, became one of the faces of UA with his signature sneaker line.

Like most sneaker brands, Under Armour is also into lifestyle shoes. Among its casual shoes is the UA RailFit, which boasts an innovative and eye-catching lacing system. Due to its positive remarks, subsequent follow-ups were released. The Under Armour RailFit TXT has a similar construction to the original model, but with less striking details on the upper.

  • The regular price of the UA Railfit TXT is $90.
  • Its approximate weight is 184 grams.
