Good to know

Looking for fresh workout kicks? Check out the Under Armour Aura. Made from lightweight materials such as the mesh upper enhanced with synthetic overlays, this pair is designed for movement.

The midsole is made of the Micro G foam which is crafted to be resilient and responsive to offer the same cushioning as platforms that are 30% heavier. Parts of the midsole serve as the outsole, but a layer of rubber protects hardwearing areas.

Protecting the bottom of the Under Armour Aura is the foam midsole, but hard-wearing areas are lined with non-marking solid rubber. The underside features a tread pattern that supports multi-directional traction. There are also flex grooves that promote smooth forward and side-to-side movements.

A full-length Micro G foam provides cushioning this Under Armour training shoe. This platform is engineered to be 30% thinner compared to other foams that deliver the same shock absorption. It is also responsive which allows it to quickly return to its original form, ready for the next impact.

A removable insole enhances the comfort provided by the midsole. This element also prevents the foot from sliding inside the shoe.

The Under Armour Aura employs a mesh fabric for its upper. This material is lightweight and breathable which helps the foot move naturally and remain fresh.

High-stress areas like the toe box, the eyestay, and the heel are reinforced with synthetic overlays. These components prevent the covered areas from prematurely tearing because of friction.

The trainer uses a traditional lace-up closure for fit adjustment. The collar and the tongue are lightly padded to keep the fit snug while the interior is covered in a smooth fabric that prevents chafing.
