Under Armour Modern Court Mid History
In the footwear industry, Under Armour is one of those that reached high popularity because of its performance footwear that delivers especially with endorsements from well-known athletes such as Cam Newton, Jordan Spieth, and, of course, Stephen Curry.
For years, the brand focused solely on developing and marketing performance footwear products that are mainly basketball shoes. But on its 20th anniversary, UA launched a collection of shoes that are “lifestyle performance” based. The UA Threadborne Reveal, Threadborne Shift, Moda Run Low, and Charged 24/7 NU are just some of the pioneering batch of the brand’s new endeavor. The launch of these Under Armour sneakers exemplify the brand’s goal of combining style with its top of the line performance footwear technologies.
Such move eventually sprouted to more and more lifestyle performance sneaker models from the brand. One of the recent releases is the Under Armour Modern Court Mid, a women's UA kick that features a slip-on construction in a mid-cut design. Highlighting its look is the asymmetrical mesh fabric upper contrasted with a leather heel tab.
Under Armour Modern Court Mid Style
These women’s Under Armour sneakers ooze out a modern-meets-sporty aesthetic. The breathable mesh fabric upper is minimal and with its asymmetrical construction being the only highlight of the design. On the heel is a contrasting tab in leather material for added support and a bit of color pop. Because of such simple aesthetic, the UA Modern Court Mid makes a versatile pair to wear any time at any day. It can be paired with shorts, skirts, jeans, or dresses.
Fit & Sizing
The Under Armour Modern Court Mid is a mid-top shoe constructed with an easy to wear slip-on design. It is equipped with an internal stretch band that allows a secure and lockdown fit once worn. Added on the heel is a loop pull tab in premium leather material that does not only provide extra design detail but also aids wearers in quickly slipping on and off the shoe.
This shoe is a women's only model with sizes ranging from 5 to 12, including half sizes in between, in Medium or Standard width.
Unlike most of the sneakers in the market, the Under Armour Modern Court Mid possesses a distinct look that easily sets it apart from the rest. Its upper is made of breathable fabric material, but what makes it interesting is the asymmetrical construction that somehow gives an overlapping illusion of the slip-on design. Function-wise, this detail allows easy slip on and off, especially with the additional heel pull tab.
