Good to know
Stability and motion control add-ons are uncommon for workout shoes and are never present in CrossFit or weightlifting footwear. They are mostly found in walking shoes where the gait is easier to correct.
Training footwear typically weighs between 200g and 300g per shoe to accommodate agile workouts. Minimalist trainers go as low as 150g, while weightlifting shoes can go as high as 500g.

Updates to Under Armour Precision X
- The Under Armour Precision X is a training shoe created for women on the go. It is fashioned to pair well with workout clothes, but also look great when used as everyday walking footgear. It is crafted using lightweight materials that don’t pull the wearer down.
- The upper is made of a breathable textile that aerates the foot chamber. It has a cool zigzagged elastic band that locks the foot in place.
- For the sole unit, the low-profile midsole adds steadiness while the Micro G sockliner amplifies the shock absorption of the platform. The midsole also doubles as the outsole, but the high-wear areas are lined with rubber pads to heighten traction and durability.
Under Armour Precision X size and fit
Made to accommodate women’s feet, the Under Armour Precision X is available in US sizes 5 to 12. Widthwise, it only comes in a B - Medium profile. The rounded toe box allows for toe splaying, but the midfoot is snug thanks to the broad elastic band anchored by bungee ropes on either side of the foot. It sports a bootie construction with a form-fitting style.
The Under Armour Precision X features a midsole that doubles as the outsole. The compound is constructed to be durable, flexible, and lightweight, allowing users to keep moving whether the workout is indoors or outdoors. It features a tread pattern that resembles a fingerprint which delivers multi-directional grip.
High-friction areas are reinforced with rubber pads. These pads are meant to protect the underlying material so they won’t quickly wear out when used on rough surfaces. The rubber pads also heighten the traction of the underside.
The full-length cushioning of this Under Armour trainer is engineered to be low-to-the-ground, providing a stable and supportive base for fitness enthusiasts. It has a 6-mm drop which translates to a slight heel elevation that positions the foot to feel more planted during weight training or even squat deeper.
Inside is the Micro G sockliner. Micro G is one of Under Armour’s proprietary foam cushioning units that amplifies the shock attenuation of the midsole without adding thickness to it. It also has a high energy return which means there’s more bounce with each step.
The stretchy bootie upper of the Under Armour Precision X permits the foot to slide in or out effortlessly. The breathable textile not only keeps the foot chamber cool but also allows for natural foot expansion throughout the day.
There is no lacing system in this model, but it does have a wide elastic strap in a zigzag pattern at the midfoot. It is tethered on either side of the midfoot by bungee ropes. The combination of the elastic band and the bungee ropes delivers a full locked-down fit and amplified lateral support.
At the rearfoot is a leather heel counter. It holds the heel in place, preventing it from sliding inside the shoe during dynamic movements.
The plushness of the tongue and the collar add to the snugness of the upper. The inside is lined with a soft textile that also aims to provide a great in-shoe feel and prevent chafing.
