Get extra propelling power from the Under Armour HOVR Infinite 2 outsole
The forefoot section of the Under Armour HOVR Infinite 2’s outsole unit is made of blown rubber. This spongy version of carbon rubber provides a bounciness that the runner can use for extra propelling power. It still offers surface traction and protection from abrasion.
The heel part features high abrasion rubber, a compound maintains its form, even after many uses. This kind of rubber also offers robust damage resistance, as well as a grip that is dependable and long-lasting.
Shallow flex grooves line the forefoot section. These elements make the platform as flexible as possible, permitting the natural bending motion of the toe joints as the foot gears itself for the toe-off phase of the gait cycle.
Under Armour's HOVR technology
The UA HOVR™ technology involves a foam ‘core’ unit that is encased in compression mesh. This configuration preserves the form and cushioning power of the core piece. A consistent ride that is similar to the initial run motivates the wearer to fully enjoy many more activities throughout the lifespan of this Under Armour running shoe.
A ‘carrier’ foam graces the outer portion of the platform since the HOVR™ is merely a piece of the whole cushioning system. This full-length add-on looks like a cradle or cage that supports the specialized technology within. It completes the puzzle that is the HOVR Infinite 2’s underfoot support features, delivering shock attenuation and smooth heel-to-toe transitions.
A molded ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) sockliner is placed right on top of the main underfoot platform. This provides a soft surface on which the foot can rest. It has a curved arch that supports the curve of the midfoot and gives it a bit of respite, even with all the motion and impact that come with taking each step. It can be removed or replaced with a new one if the runner wishes to do so.
Cool and dry running experience with the Under Armour HOVR Infinite 2 upper
The upper unit of the Under Armour HOVR Infinite 2 is made of engineered mesh. This fresh change from the regular mesh used in the first iteration focuses on a sock-like fit that is seamless and free of irritation. The visible ventilation holes and cuts are for a cool and dry ride. The natural outline of the foot is accommodated by this light and stretchy material.
Worry-free running with Under Armour HOVR Infinite 2
A thermoplastic heel counter is placed on the rear section of the upper unit. This hard piece is tasked with holding the heel in place and preventing it from exiting the foot-chamber accidentally. It also bolsters the durability of the fabrics.
A scant use of printed overlays screams out the brand’s confidence in the capacity of the upper unit’s fabrics remains durable. Still, these thin prints help in locking the foot in place. They cover the sides and the eye stays, connecting to the lacing system where they adapt to the tightening and loosening of the shoelaces during the loop-and-tie fit-adjustment period.
The generously padded tongue and collar offer cushioning to the Achilles tendon, the ankles, and the roof of the foot. These parts of the silhouette are also created which steadies the foot while inside the interior compartment, staving off in-shoe wobbling and helping in the attainment of a well-balanced gait.
A reflective coating is strategically added to the overlays that makes this running shoe as visible as possible, especially at night. Those who like running at dusk can enjoy safety with this safety feature included.
