- The Under Armour Micro G Pursuit Twist is a neutral running shoe that’s designed for those who have a desire to take to the roads. This product has a contemporary design that employs a knitted upper and muted colorways. Multilayered mesh makes up the heel part of the façade, but it’s a means to hold the foot in place, working with the collar padding to prevent wobbling.
- A full-length foam graces the midsole unit. This compound has a lightweight build that contributes to a speedy performance through long periods. The external pad is made of rubber, and it’s tasked with preventing wear-and-tear while ensuring surface adherence.
The sizing scheme of this running shoe was based on the standard measurements. Runners are encouraged to get a pair using their usual sizing expectations. When it comes to width, the Under Armour Micro G Pursuit Twist has the D – Medium and 2E – Wide options for men, and B – Medium and D – Wide choices for women.
The Under Armour Micro G Pursuit has a rubber outsole that’s fashioned like a cage. This layer is tasked with protecting the perimeter of the platform and the contact points from the abrasive nature of the surfaces. It is also responsible for delivering traction, a fundamental aspect of running.
Shallow flex grooves allow the foot to flex naturally. The whole platform is also permitted to bend in conjunction with the movements of the foot.
Micro G® is a full-length cushioning unit. This technology aims to protect the foot from the impact shock generated by the foot-strike. Also, it is responsible for energizing the foot as it gears for the toe-off phase of the gait cycle. It has a lightweight yet durable construction.
A die-cut insole is placed right above the primary cushioning system. This piece is made of ethylene vinyl acetate or EVA. Its job is to provide extra support to the underfoot. It also includes the arch as it’s a delicate part of the foot that isn’t usually given attention.
The front and midfoot portions of the Under Armour Micro G Pursuit Twist’s upper is composed of a knitted fabric, which is a soft and flexible material that has open pores for heightened breathability. The form-fitting nature of this textile permits the natural movement capacity and swelling of the foot as it takes each step.
The heel part of the upper is composed of a multilayered mesh that’s lined with padding. The goal of this design is to lock the foot in place and prevent accidental shoe removals.
The traditional lacing system includes a set of reinforced eyelets, semi-round laces, and a tongue anchor. These elements work together to provide a secure and well-articulated in-shoe coverage. The adjustability of the fit is a classic feature that anyone can appreciate.
