Updates to Under Armour Horizon STR
- The Under Armour Horizon STR has been reinforced with welded synthetic material in areas that need durability the most. Doing this enhanced the sturdiness of the shoe’s construction to prevent early signs of wear and tear during trail runs.
- A plush foam was placed around the ankle collar to provide enhanced support. A padded collar prevents irritation and rubbing on the Achilles tendon.
- The outsole is made up of a high traction rubber composed of lugs that have been placed strategically to provide sufficient traction in a variety of conditions.
Under Armour Horizon STR size and fit
The Under Armour Horizon STR is available in standard running shoe lengths. Those interested will be able to use their usual size preferences. The width is similar, coming in standard measurements of B – medium and D – medium for women and men respectively.
The outsole is made up of a high traction rubber which provides a good amount of grip on different surfaces. The rectangular lugs have different sizes on different underfoot areas, digging into different terrain, and enhancing the reliability of the grab.
The midsole is made with a full-length EVA foam which provides a good amount of cushioning. Typically, the running shoes of today have this kind of foam as a platform because it’s lightweight and it’s soft on the underfoot. It also delivers adequate responsiveness and energy return.
The upper is made of a Polyutherane material or PU for short. It is very durable and resistant to cracking while delivering protection from UV damage. Because the material is plastic-like, it’s easy to clean and is somewhat waterproof. It also does not absorb moisture.
Reinforcing the upper are welded synthetic materials which were placed on different critical areas to enhance durability. The reinforcements also help in locking the midfoot down, preventing this part from moving laterally during runs.
For breathability, mesh material was introduced to the heel part. The mesh fabric is made of a network of threads. With space in between these threads, air can easily pass in and out, making the inside of the shoe cool and breathable.
A plush foam was added around the ankle collar to deliver comfort and protection to the Achilles tendon. With this cushioning, there’s also lesser chances of skin irritation.
