  • A shoe that double-duties for running and leisure, this is what the Under Armour aims to achieve with the Drift 2. It features a modern design that is slightly different from its predecessor. The shoe is ideal for runners who require little to no arch support.
  • With a ClutchFit mesh, the upper is lightweight and breathable while also providing foot-hugging support and structure that is beneficial for long runs. The 2nd version of the Under Armour Drift also introduces a unique approach when it comes to fastening system.
  • Its EVA foam midsole enables a responsive and plush ride while delivering an enhanced fit. Underneath it is a rubber outsole that has traction pads on high-impact zones to permit additional durability while remaining lightweight.

The Under Armour Drift 2 has a standard running shoe length with a variety of size options. While the heel area has a moderate width, the forefoot and midfoot parts are narrow, thus making the shoe suitable for runners with a low foot volume. Width profiles are available in D – Medium for men and B – Medium for women.

The outsole of the Drift 2 features a unique design with its traction patterns strategically placed in the high-impact areas – the heel, the toe, and the ball of the foot. This layout allows the shoe to remain lightweight, yet still able to supply grip where it is needed.

Using EVA foam ensures that the platform is comfy yet supportive, while also being responsive and energized. As EVA foam is inherently soft and plush, runners are guaranteed flexibility with the shoe.

A second layer of the midsole comprises the full-length EVA sock liner. It offers added comfort and a customized fit for even more agreeable wear.

The brand’s signature ClutchFit technology in the upper is still part of the Drift 2. ClutchFit works by stretching the mesh to wrap and hold the foot comfortably without sacrificing breathability.

For additional structure and support, there is a synthetic overlay on the forefoot area and a suede overlay on the heel area.

The most noticeable update on the Drift 2 is its closure system. Instead of traditional lace-up, a cinch-shut draw-cord lace is present. This feature promotes quick and effortless wear and take-off of the shoe.

There is a stretch-fit ankle collar that locks the foot in place, giving a snug fit. It includes perforations around the surface for added air circulation.
