UA Charged Rogue 2.5: Comfortably cushy
"Amazingly comfortable," and "cloud-like" — this is how runners describe the shoe's Charged cushioning.
According to them, they didn't have to break the shoe in because it's very plush upon step-in. It's also great at absorbing all the impact.
Like other Under Armour running shoes, testers say that the UA Charged Rogue is featherweight. It's so light, it doesn't drag the feet down.
Warning: The UA Charged Rogue 2.5 is tight
The upper is very "narrow" and has "low height," expressed multiple critics. Some even say the shoe "hurt" their arches.
Up front, the toe box is also very narrow, making the shoe constricting.
Because of the tight-fitting upper and minimally padded tongue, the eyelets dig into the top of the foot. This happens when runners cinch the laces down.
There's very little protection from the tongue, some even had bruises on their feet.
Those who have tested the shoe in humid conditions all agree that it has poor air circulation. So much so, it heats up their feet.
For those who plan to use the Charged Rouge for summer runs, you might want to reconsider.
Quality is as bad as it gets
After 2 weeks, the sole has already "detached" from the rest of the shoe.
Insoles don't stay in place
The insole slides are "not glued properly," it goes all the way to the back. Multiple reviewers have reported that it rubs against the Achilles, it causes blistering.
Slippery when wet
The outsole has poor traction when faced with slick surfaces.
