Who should buy the Under Armour SlipSpeed
Because of the BOA toggle lacing system, the SlipSpeed is a good match for those wearers who do not like sitting or bending over just to tie their laces, especially in the middle of their workout sessions. Aside from them, the following are also going to be happy with this innovative trainer from Under Armour:
- fitness enthusiasts who like training shoes that they can also use in casual contexts
- gym-goers whose workout regimens are more generic and less niche-specific
- wearers who appreciate getting a shoe and a slip-on in one
Who should NOT buy this training shoe from Under Armour
Wide-footers are not the targets of this Under Armour training shoe model. They can either size up or go for more wide-foot-friendly models such as the Under Armour Project Rock 5.
While the SlipSpeed is great for workouts of light to moderate intensities, it's not a good pick for heavy lifting and other forms of more intense exercises. The TriBase Reign 4 from Under Armour might be a better pick for them.
UA SlipSpeed means performance
"The shoes really have me hooked!" exclaims a happy reviewer. He points out that the innovations incorporated into the shoe worked their magic on him. Several other wearers have somewhat the same sentiments.
Shoe? Slide? Get both with the SlipSpeed
The heel area of the Under Armour SlipSpeed is actually collapsible such that it can be transformed into a slider. Several good words have been about this innovative feature. The following are just some:
- "nice touch"
- "literally genius"
- "very cool"
One happy wearer goes as far as claiming that this feature "has been the best part" of the shoe for him.
Make easy adjustments with the BOA lacing system
A fitness enthusiast is bold in saying that the BOA toggle lacing system "could be the future" of training shoes. An expert says that this is a "must-feature" given that the shoe has a convertible heel.
This ain't for heavy training
"I’d pass on them as I get more niche," says an expert. It's true; the innovations made this shoe easy to wear, light, and comfortable. However, they also made it not suitable for more intense exercises.
Enjoy reliable propulsions
An expert is happy that the midsole of this shoe is bouncy and quite suitable for high jumps, box jumps, and other plyometric exercises. The midsole's mechanism is effective in returning the energy needed by these vertical movements.
Stability is not a problem
An expert thinks that this shoe is stable enough for light to moderate weightlifting. Another user comments that the stability that this shoe delivers is also great for multi-directional movements.
The SlipSpeed feels light
A wearer reports that this shoe from Under Armour is "super lightweight." Others chime in, saying that this shoe is light enough to be worn the whole day.
It's comfortable. Really.
Two wearers describe the UA SlipSpeed as "super comfy" and "extremely comfortable." A worker who stands all day at work considers this shoe as a "real treat to wear" during his rest days.
For the gym and a lot more
"It is a do-everything shoe," says one wearer about the Under Armour SlipSpeed. Several wearers report using this shoe for running, walking, shopping, and a mix of other sporty and mundane activities.
However, this shoe starts to falter when the exercises become a bit niche-specific. An expert notes that it's not really for heavy training.
Many sizes available, none specifically for wide feet
This shoe has many size options, and this is its "nice subtle perk" according to an expert. However, this shoe still does not accommodate those with wide feet.
Gymming in style? Not a problem!
Many fitness enthusiasts think that this shoe has a fairly fashionable design. One of them says that it actually "makes sense" to wear this casually.
