Good amount of traction

On the heel area of the outsole is Carbon rubber. The heel is a high-wear zone that needs the most protection which is why this abrasion-resistant and durable material was introduced.

Aside from that, the rubber also supplies a good amount of traction on common surfaces, helping the runner propel forward without slipping.

Threadborne Blur is lighter and cushier

On the forefoot is Blown Rubber. It is a compound which was mixed with air during its manufacturing process, making a rubber that’s lighter and cushier than standard foams. Strategically placed, this material allows the outsole better flexibility and responsiveness.

The tread pattern of the Under Armour Threadborne Blur is composed of wavy, Anatomical Flex Grooves that allow the foot to move freely and naturally.

Protective and responsive

The midsole of the Under Armour Threadborne Blur has the Micro G foam which is lighter than standard foams in the industry. It helps make the shoe lightweight without sacrificing protection and responsiveness.

The cushioning isn’t plush, but the foam offers a feel that’s closer to the ground, allowing runners to have a better feel of the path they are running on. The Micro G foam is also used in other running shoes from Under Armour.

Provides comfortable compression

The heel part of the midsole has been deconstructed, sporting a not-so-usual look with its donut-like design. It adds to the aesthetic value of the shoe while aiding in impact dispersion, re-directing the force received by the heel to the rest of the foot.

The upper is made of a material called Threaborne. It is knitted pieces of thread that provide comfortable compression and support that’s multi-directional.

Under Armour Threadborne Blur is a well-ventilated shoe

It also eliminates the formation of hot spots during runs as it easily allows air to pass through its gaps, making the shoe well ventilated.

The tongue also aids in making the upper breathable as it is made of mesh material. Other than ventilation, this part of the upper is connected to the footbed by stretchable support wings which helps maintain the snugness throughout the foot.

Delivers sufficient underfoot comfort

At the back part, the innovative Speedform construction locks the heel in place. Because it cups the heel, it prevents this part of the foot from moving side to side while the runner is in motion. The stability delivers only minimal, but it does ensure that the fit is snug and precise.

Under Armour Threadborne Blur sock liner

As an extra layer of cushioning, an embedded sock liner was added. Since this platform comes into contact with the foot directly, it aids in delivering sufficient underfoot comfort while acting as a sheet of impact protection.
