Profile of the Under Armour M-Tag

The M-tag model of the Under Armour brand is considered as one of the lightest basketball shoes when it was released. This model boasts a two-tone mesh upper that ensures a comfortable compressed feel. A unique lacing system, which adds to the unique look of the shoe, also delivers a secure lockdown.


Cushion. Shock absorption is one of the key benefits of using an EVA-based material, which is what the cushion is made of. The same material also makes up the shoe’s sockliner. This component decreases the probability of injury.

Traction. Traction and grip are ensured by the UA M-Tag’s rubber outsole. The tread makes use of a multi-directional pattern which accommodates rapid multiple direction changes and lateral movements.


Length and Width. The M-Tag model of Under Armour provides players a narrow but comfortable feel. A central lacing system has been infused into the shoe’s design to optimize the fit. The mechanism also secures the foot in place. In addition to this, lace loops have been integrated into both sides of the shoe. Men’s standard sizes that range from sizes 7 to 16 have been made available by the brand.

It is important to take note, however, that the shoe has a narrow fit - an observation made by a significant number of reviewers. This type of construction may not be ideal for broad foot types. So, it is recommended to visit the nearest Under Armour store to try on a pair and get the best possible fit.

Lockdown. Fit customization for the pair is achieved through a central lacing system. Its lace hoops are anchored on both sides of the shoe to allow optimal foot lockdown. Bungee cords are used as laces for this model.


A two-tone mesh-based upper compresses the player’s foot, ensuring a secure fit. This setup doubles as protection and support. Reinforcing this are microfiber overlays that are placed in the toe and heel areas. The basketball shoe’s mid-cut collar hugs the ankle, effectively adding to the support that the shoe provides.


Aesthetic versatility is one of the UA M-Tag’s strengths. The pair can look good when paired with jerseys as much as when they are coupled with a pair of jeans or shorts. While the upper design and colorway is simple enough, the lacing system brings an added twist to the UA M-Tag’s overall look.
