Who should buy the Under Armour Runplay
The UA Runplay is a great choice if you're looking to buy a running shoe for:
- daily runs
- recovery days
- long walks
Barely has any weight
Almost all testers agree that the shoe is "so light," they don't feel like they have it on.
The Runplay's lightness has been highly appreciated by runners who like to take on hilly sections. They say it's easy to run steep ascents and descents because the shoe doesn't drag their feet down.
Even better, their feet have never become tired after "many miles" because of the shoe's barely-there weight.
It won't hurt the bank
For only $60, the Under Armour Runplay is what we consider a budget running shoe. On average, daily trainers retail for $120.
UA Runplay: Delivering comfort all day and every day
The Runplay from Under Armour has received so much praise from multiple reviewers. It's "soft and flexible," many find it "ergonomically ideal." It even took just a day to break it in.
Even those who are on their feet for extended periods of time (5-6 hours mostly) say it's comfortable and supportive.
The upper material is not too thick nor too thin, there are no reports of the shoe feeling hot. Those who have run in it under hot conditions all claim that it's superbly breathable.
The Under Armour Runplay has a slip-on design. Despite not having laces, many still find it very supportive and snug.
Thanks to the midfoot bands, the feet stay in place. And in the rear, there's enough padding and reinforcement for a great heel clutch.
Conforms to the feet
The running shoe's upper is very stretchy, it can adjust to the feet's shape and size. Even wide-footed runners share that the fit remains comfortable.
Wet surfaces are no problem
The shoe's rubber outsole is grippy. Those who have tested the shoe in rain claim that it latches well on slick surfaces.
A certified stunner
Users love the all-black colorway. Compared to other daily trainers, it's "dressier" and "sleeker."
UA Runplay: Cheap price, cheap quality
Unfortunately, the Under Armour Runplay is only as good as its price. It's especially evident in the upper that's already torn after only a week of use.
