  • The Under Armour Fat Tire features the Michelin WildGripper outsole with aggressive lugs. The outsole design is inspired from the fat tire off-road bike that delivers reliable grip and traction especially on uphill runs.
  • The midsole of the shoe was also improved. It uses the Charged cushioning foam that delivers impact protection and rebound. This works perfectly with the bottom-loaded foam that delivers added comfort and underfoot protection.
  • The Fat Tire also features the Under Armour Strom1 technology. It uses the moisture-wicking fabric that repels water, keeping the foot drier even on slightly wet conditions. This gives the foot the necessary moisture protection without sacrificing the upper’s breathability feature.
