Good to know
- The upper is made of a knit material called Threadborne. It wraps the foot snuggly, delivering a comfortable amount of compression and support. It makes runners feel like the upper fuses with the foot as it promotes natural movement.
- The shoe has a midfoot strap that delivers a decent amount of stability and security to the part of the foot where it is on. The strap has been integrated with the lacing system, so tightening the laces will also secure the fit and minimal stabilization on the midfoot.
- On the midsole is the Charged Cushioning material. Appropriately named, it aims to bring responsiveness to every stride while bringing optimal cushioning and protection underfoot. The result is a ride that feels secure and energetic.
- Reflective detailing was added under the heel and to the strap to keep runners visible and safe during night runs or during low light conditions.
The Under Armour Threadborne Slingwrap comes in standard running shoe lengths. Runners will be able to purchase a pair using their usual length preferences. For the width, it also comes in the standard D – medium and B – medium for men and women respectively.
The outsole is made of a flexible rubber that was strategically segmented into pods. Doing this permits better movement and flexibility without compromising the protection delivered by the outsole. The pods adapt to different surfaces as well, slightly improving the balance of the runner. The contact area of each pod is wide, decorated with zigzag and linear tooling for better grip and traction.
The unique circular design of the outsole’s heel ensures that the force garnered upon heel-strike is distributed evenly, lessening the chances of injury. This component is called a deconstructed heel.
The lightweight Charged Cushioning is the primary material on the midsole of the Under Armour Threadborne Slingwrap. It is a compression molded foam that provides a soft underfoot feel, as well as sufficient impact protection. It also gives the runners a ride with enhanced responsiveness. This running shoe is as responsive and comfortable as the Launch 6 tunning shoe from Brooks.
Wrapping the foot is the Threadborne knit material that’s made of micro-sized, lightweight threads. The textile compresses the foot comfortably, bringing a fit that feels secure and supportive. Despite its snugness, it still allows the foot to bend and flex naturally when the runner is in motion.
The tongue is made of breathable mesh which allows air to pass through, imparting enough ventilation to allow the foot to breathe. The tongue was also constructed with support wings that further enhances the fit of the shoe.
The Innovative UA Speedform component can be found on the heel. This feature is a molded heel cup which makes way for a precision fit. Since it makes runners feel more secure, it encourages acceleration during runs.
Inside is a footbed that serves as an extra layer of cushioning. It improves the comfort felt directly below the foot. It is removable so runners can easily replace this insole with a custom orthotic, further improving the fit and support from the inside.
