  • The Under Armour Charged Europa 2 is a stability running shoe that contains several design updates from its predecessor. Its overall design and structure were improved to give the shoe a more stylish look. The engineered mesh upper is designed to be more lightweight and breathable
  • Charged Cushioning® technology is incorporated in the midsole section. This compressed foam delivers greater responsiveness and durability. It also reduces stress on the runner’s feet. 
  • The Micro G® heel unit and medial posting help increase stabilization and the blown rubber at the outsole area improves the grip and durable performance

The Under Armour Charged Europa 2 has a standard running shoe length. It follows the usual choices of consumers when it comes to size. However, it is advisable that people should test the shoe first or get feedback from other buyers. This shoe is available in a range of sizes for both men and women versions. 

The outsole unit of Under Armour Charged Europa 2 is made of high-abrasion rubber that helps absorb ground contact. This rubber protects the user from the impact generated by foot strikes. The blown rubber under the forefoot is also lightweight and responsive to the foot’s movement. 

Lying in the midsole section is the Charged Cushioning® technology. This foam’s primary purpose is to improve the shoe’s energy return capacity. This material equipped the shoe with a feature to ensure lesser impacts. 

The Micro G® heel unit and medial posting are integrated to increase stabilization and support. The Micro G®, a unique polymer, is a combination of traditional EVA and rubber material, providing elasticity. Another running shoe that utilizes the EVA rubber is the Adidas Runfalcon

The medial post, on the other hand, helps the foot remain in a natural position and prevent overpronation.

This stability running shoe is also embedded with a sockliner for added cushioning, support and seamless comfort.

This running companion uses an engineered mesh upper. This lightweight and breathable upper is designed to provide additional strategic support and enhance the ventilation of the foot.  Its breathable fabric lining also offers a great in-shoe feel. 

Under Armour Charged Europa 2 has padded shoe collar and tongue for a more comfortable ride.
