Updates to Under Armour Flow Twist

  • The Under Armour Flow Twist was enhanced with a lightweight construction that is flexible and soft as well. The cushioning construction of this shoe is outrageous and it even outdid the other shoes because of the combination of the 4D Foam insole and the full-length Micro G midsole. This update delivers added comfort, flexibility, and durability, allowing the runner to stride for more and farther without the pain.
  • This shoe is also designed with the new camo design, which is very intriguing, and the ballistic woven mesh of soft nylon provides ultra-breathability and flexible comfort to the runner. The upper is also combined with the synthetic and leather materials for added mid-foot lockdown and structure.
  • To make it more efficient, it is designed with strategically placed rubber traction on the outsole for greater durability, improved traction, and more efficient running shoe at less the weight.

Under Armour Flow Twist size and fit

The shoe length of the Flow Twist running shoe is at the standard size and fit, which means that it can accommodate feet with narrow to medium length and width. The toe box area and the mid-foot area are both designed to fit a wide range of runners with standard size, and with the molded foot bed, the shoe conforms to the exact shape of foot.


Outsole

The outsole of the Flow Twist is constructed with the usual Under Armour rubber outsole, but it is enhanced strategically by placing rubber traction on high-abrasive areas. The flexibility of the sole (midsole and outsole) provides a very amazing stride from landing to take off.


Midsole

The midsole of this shoe come with the best ever Micro G foam. This is a very amazing technology that does not just provide full-length foam softness, but also a durable cushioning system that keeps the foot odor-free and comfortable. It helps make each landing an opportunity for a greater and powerful take-off. To enhance this, there is also an added molded foot bed, which is a soft insole that offers cushioning and comfort as it conforms to the shape of the foot.


Upper

The upper is featured with the soft nylon ballistic mesh material that is smooth and breathable. It is enhanced with the synthetic and leather materials for durability, flexibility, and support. There is also an added external heel cup for stability.
