Under Armour Lockdown 5: Built to last

Nothing is more annoying than having a basketball shoe that works well but doesn't last long.  Under Armour understands the frustration, so they made sure that durability is in the Under Armour Lockdown 5's DNA. 

The Lockdown 5's breathable mesh upper has synthetic overlays that not only add structure but also protect it from abrasion. Of particular note is the high-wear toe area, which is covered in TPU film. Underneath it all is a solid rubber outsole that is designed to withstand the harsh conditions of outdoor courts. With reasonable care, the UA Lockdown 5 is sure to last.

UA Lockdown 5: Durability and more

Besides durability, the Under Armour Lockdown 5 offers more such as the following:

  • Breathability. Aside from synthetic overlays, the upper also features some perforations in strategic areas. These holes, of course, help with ventilation.
  • Comfort and freshness. The upper and tongue are made of mesh, which has been proven time and time again to provide comfort. The really minimal-feeling sockliner is applied with an anti-odor technology to make sure that the foot stays fresh and protected.
  • Responsiveness. To deliver court feel and energy return, the shoe is equipped with an EVA insole.
