Updates to Under Armour Drift
- The Under Armour Drift series is a running shoe designed to meet the needs of running enthusiasts. The addition of a flexible support mesh that follows the contours of the foot and allows the passage of air makes for an excellent shoe system that would fit any runner’s needs.
- This affordable running shoe also utilizes newly designed synthetic material that gives the shoe its structure and helps keep the foot in place while it is being worn.
- They also added a molded toe cap for added toe protection and at the same time to give the shoe a streamlined shape and durability.
Under Armour Drift size and fit
The Drift is available in standard running shoe length. The heel and midfoot delivers a snug and comfortable fit while the forefoot is in medium measurement. This shoe is designed to deliver a great fit to those medium-footed runners. Under Armour is offering this shoe in standard D and B widths for men’s and women’s versions respectively.
The outsole on this shoe is placed in specific parts to give the wearer protection, especially in those high impact areas. And because the outsole is not attached to the whole shoe, it makes the shoe lighter than most running shoes. The rubber outsoles provide a high degree of traction on almost any surface. This outsole configuration is also present in the Drift 2.
The midsole of the Drift uses the cushioned EVA midsole foam that provides a lightweight and cushioned area that makes the running experience a joy for veteran or beginner runners alike. This cushioning is designed for a responsive ride. Also, the full-length EVA sockliner gives added cushioning and enhanced fit.
What truly defines the Under Armour Drift is its flexibility and light weight. It feels as if you are walking on a cushion or marshmallows even. Aside from that cushion comfort, the upper area is a combination of the ClutchFit mesh which gives a very good support base and allows the air to get into the foot. This combined with synthetic overlays give the shoe its structure and at the same time keeps the foot secure in the shoe.
