Facts

- The Under Armour HOVR Infinite Camo is the newest addition to the Under Armour HOVR family. This neutral running shoe is created to support the needs of runners and trainers in terms of durability, efficiency, and cushioning quality. 

- Like the Under Armour HOVR Infinite, the new Camo colorway is designed to be fast and comfortable. The UA HOVR™ foam and mesh energy web are working together to reduce the impact and offer good energy return, providing a more efficient running experience. 

- Providing reliable protection and enhancing durability is the solid rubber material incorporated in the outsole unit of the shoe. The deep flex grooves complete the structure of the shoe. These details boost the shoe’s flexibility in fundamental areas. 

The HOVR Infinite Camo was made using the regular measurements to accommodate the usual choice of consumers when it comes to size. However, it is recommended to fit the shoe first or check the user feedback about sizing before purchasing to ensure a perfect fit. 

This Under Armour running shoe utilizes stretchable laces and EVA sockliner to provide an adjustable fit and comfortable in-shoe feel.  

The HOVR Infinite Camo features a rubber outsole that is tasked to protect the platform from high impact zones for maximum durability. This rubber outsole is abrasion-resistant and extremely durable. It allows the runner to stay in control of the ground while providing a smooth and stable ride. 

The deep flex grooves beneath the outsole improve the shoe’s traction on both wet and dry surfaces. It also offers greater flexibility, allowing the shoe to move naturally with the foot. 

This road running shoe also uses record sensor technology that tracks every run that the user takes. The sensor connects to the Under Armour MapMyRun app for an individualized analysis and coaching based on the runner’s pace, stride length, cadence, and distance. 

The UA HOVR™ technology is incorporated in the midsole unit to help minimize the impact in every stride. The UA HOVR™ foam is added to deliver a long-lasting and zero-gravity comfort. 

The midsole utilizes a compression-mesh energy web that instantly returns the energy as a rebound, providing a responsive and efficient ride. 

Providing personalized comfort is the ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) sockliner integrated into the shoe. Over time, the EVA sockliner will conform to the shape of the foot to provide a more stable feel and reduce the chance of slippage. Other popular running shoes that utilize the EVA sockliner are the Asics Gel Nimbus 21 and Asics GT 2000 7.

The engineered mesh upper keeps the foot dry and cool by allowing the air to continually flow in and out of the shoe. Once wicked away, the breathable upper dries off quickly to return the shoe to its original feel and weight. 

The manufacturers have also included a thick material that serves as an additional layer of protection for the forefoot.

This running shoe’s internal heel counter securely holds the heel in a firm upright position. It keeps the foot from slipping in the shoe, while the stretchable laces offer a secure and comfortable fit. 

The 360-Degree Reflectivity is also incorporated into the upper to increase the runner’s visibility during night runs.
