- Blown rubber outsole offers a responsive ride and a flexible underfoot experience
- A lightweight midsole provides cushioning and responsiveness
More flexible than conventional rubber
The blown rubber used in the shoe’s forefoot region is more flexible and responsive than conventional rubber. This air-injected rubber ensures smooth transitioning of the foot from toe-off to landing.
This running shoe also boasts the high abrasion rubber on its outsole, which provides optimal traction and impact attenuation, thereby protecting the runner’s foot from injury and the mid-sole from abrasion.
A bouncy and protective midsole
The shoe features a highly responsive and lightweight Charged Foam in its midsole. It delivers a nice bouncy feel, as well as excellent protection from impact forces. The foam has the capability of bouncing back and propelling the runner forward with its excellent energy return.
The embedded sockliner which molds to the foot’s shape provides additional comfort to the underfoot by enhancing cushioning of the midsole.
The Velociti's upper with abundant features
The Under Armour Velociti has made use of several interesting technologies in its upper. The engineered mesh delivers high comfortability and optimal breathability for the runner. The mesh allows proper circulation of air inside the shoe, which keeps the feet dry and the user fresh during longer sessions of running.
The Under Armour’s special SpeedForm construction in the upper wraps itself snugly around the runner’s foot and adapts itself to the changing movements, thereby preventing chafing during the activity.
Another interesting feature is the Threadborne midfoot panel. Made from high-strength stylish fibers, it heightens the overall look of the shoe while also providing a fit that is both supportive and comfortable.
The internal seamless heel counter is also included for additional comfort. While this structure is very light in weight, it reinforces the shoe’s heel cup, thereby supplying the needed support for locking the foot into the shoe and anchoring it firmly to the interior.
The lace-up closure ensures a snug fit for the users. It also increases the efficiency of the shoe by removing any spaces between the foot and the upper unit, thereby allowing the whole product to be utilized to its full potential.
