Updates to Under Armour Charged Bandit 2 Night
- The 2nd version of the Charged Bandit gets a thorough makeover from Under Armour. It begins with a completely revamped upper. In this version, the upper gives more reflectivity for safety and convenience in low-light conditions.
- The new upper is totally seamless and gets a new mesh that is more pliable. With better flexibility, the upper hugs the foot well in comfort and security. Part of this upper renovation is the presence of a new external heel counter. The new external counter provides the added support from a quite flexible shoe. In the midfoot a small strap enhances structure and security as well.
- Under Armour kept the weight down in the latest version of the Charged Bandit by also removing the moderate padding in the ankle collar and tongue. These are now flat, but lined with plush fabric to continue delivering superb comfort.
Under Armour Charged Bandit 2 Night size and fit
The versatile 2nd iteration of the Charged Bandit 2 Night has an ample room in the toe box to accommodate those with slightly wider feet and for mid-run swelling during high-mileage runs. There is a good midfoot hold while heel security is superb. It runs true to size.
Giving this shoe a very unique feature in the outsole are the huge and deep flex grooves. These horizontal and vertical flex grooves give the shoe its optimal flexibility. The heel and parts of the midfoot are covered with High Abrasion Rubber for durability. Providing traction is the softer blown rubber in the forefoot and also some sections of the midfoot.
The midsole of the 2nd coming of the Charged Bandit Night is a dual-layered combination of Charged Cushioning that runs the length of the shoe and Micro G in the heel and the forefoot. A little tweak in this model comes in the form of a slightly stiffer Micro G in the heel compared to the forefoot. It results in a very nice mix of responsive cushioning and durability.
The breathable mesh upper in the Under Armour Charged Bandit 2 is exceptionally reflective, which differentiates it from the standard model. It has a good stretch that gives it a foot-hugging wrap. A seamless internal heel cup and an external heel counter thoroughly lock down the heel. The thin tongue and ankle collar form part of the minimalist, but very comfortable upper.
