Updates to Under Armour Flow Sweater Knit

  • The most notable difference in the Under Armour Flow Sweater Knit is obviously the sweater-like construction of the upper. It literally hugs the foot very well in support and comfort. The upper design is very breathable as well for a guaranteed dry and cool run.
  • The unique outsole is another exemplary feature in this shoe. It combines excellent ground contact, flexibility, and traction. Under Armour carves the outsole to save weight and to help with the smoothness of the toe off.

Under Armour Flow Sweater Knit size and fit

The fit of the Under Armour Flow Sweater Knit has standard breathing room in the heel and midfoot without sacrificing security. This standard fit opens slightly to a comfortable toe box that still feels like a racing shoe. It runs fairly true to size.


Outsole

The outsole has tough carbon rubber in the heel and toes on the medial side for added durability. Blown rubber covers most of the way for better traction. The unique rubber layout is characterized by patches of rubber that is carved from the rest of the usual rubber pattern. It helps with weight reduction and enhances flexibility.


Midsole

The midsole of the Under Armour Flow Sweater Knit is a one-piece standard injection molded EVA. It provides moderate cushioning, responsiveness, and durability. The full-length make of the midsole is naturally designed for smooth and effortless transitions.


Upper

The unique sweater-like construction of the upper excels in support and breathability. Under Armour gives the upper enough flexibility and tension in the right areas for comfort and wraparound feel. A leather-like and perforated overlay on both sides that are directly connected to the laces provide excellent security. The heel showcases an external heel cup for a very stable hold in this area. Runners who need a little more cushioning should find it in the full-length EVA sockliner.
