Under Armour HOVR Havoc 3: A reliable guard shoe
Having been partners with no less than Stephen Curry for years, Under Armour sure knows what a basketball guard needs. The UA HOVR Havoc 3 is a perfect example of a shoe that's made for the guards. It offers the following:
- Consistent support. Several shoe features- molded mesh and textile upper, mesh tongue, midfoot TPU shank, and a wide base- all work together to securely lock the foot in.
- Dependable traction. The herringbone pattern on its rubber outsole affords the weather maximum control and grip on indoor courts.
- Responsiveness. The proprietary HOVR technology makes sure that the wearer experiences maximal court feel.
HOVR Havoc 3 from UA: A cheap option
The proprietary HOVR foam is used by Under Armour on a variety of products: from running to training shoes. Due to HOVR's success, one would think that the product that uses this innovation is a bit pricy. Yet, Under Armour HOVR shoes for basketball are still around 40% cheaper than Adidas or Nike signature shoes that use their top technologies.
