The Breathe Trainer from Under Armour is a versatile workout shoe created specifically for a female foot. It sports a cleatie-like design with a seamless mesh upper to offer a smooth foothold. An elastic lacing system is added to regulate and support the fit. It features additional straps to further lock the midfoot down.
The Breathe Trainer utilizes a full-length rubber outsole to guard the platform against abrasion. The rubber has a lined texture which ensures grip on a variety of training surfaces.
Deep vertical flex grooves are placed along the whole length of the outsole. They ensure an unhindered forward bending of the platform. In addition, the geometrical cuts on the rubber make the sole flex in multiple directions.
This Under Armour trainer went with a traditional EVA foam unit for cushioning and shock attenuation. While the midsole is made to be responsive, it also has some firmness to it to deliver a steady base for agile movements. The back portion of the unit has a graded design to enhance the bounce-back function of the midsole.
The shoe features a smooth cleatie-like upper design. It is made of a soft open mesh material for comfort and breathability. The extended front apex and the pull tab assist the wearer in sliding the foot inside the trainer.
A synthetic overlay braces the rearfoot, extending all the way to the side panels. It contributes to the steadiness of the heel during multi-directional movements.
The fit is regulated by an intricate lacing system. While the bottom two pairs of eyelets are incorporated into the upper itself, the top two pairs of are floating. They are anchored to the bottom of the upper by additional straps for a secure lockdown of the midfoot.
