Summary

We spent 9.3 hours reading reviews from experts and users. In summary, this is what runners think:

6 reasons to buy

  • A flat mesh makes up the upper unit of the Scorpio, which offers breathable support.
  • Most runners welcomed the structure and lateral support given by the welded overlays.
  • Some of the testers were appreciative of the 4D Foam, which provides a more customized underfoot platform because it conforms to the natural shape of the wearer’s foot.
  • The Pebax plate offers lightweight support for the underside of the foot whenever it is needed.
  • The mid-sole is responsible enough that it carries the foot well through many activities.
  • The blown rubber in the outsole unit improves the durability and traction mechanics of the Scorpio.

3 reasons not to buy

  • Some runners thought that it was a bit narrow for their feet.
  • The durability of the upper was not liked by some testers because they experienced the material being torn after a few uses.
  • It has a high price.

Bottom line

Many runners have come to enjoy the Scorpio from Under Armour because of its comfortable platform, steady arch support, cool design and robust outsole. While some experienced issues on the upper, it still is capable of providing a reliable service to those who wear it.

81 / 100 based on 2 expert reviews

  • 82 / 100 by Amplify Running • Chris Narbone • Level 2 expert

    I found the Scorpio to be a solid mid-range trainer. With plenty of support, energy return, and responsiveness. The Scorpio is a running shoe with plenty of style and the substance to back it up.

  • 80 / 100 by Wear Testers • Rick Teves • Level 1 expert

    If I have anything negative to say or any critique, it would be that the upper of the shoe needs to be a mesh that has more perforations to allow for more air flow.

Updates to Under Armour Scorpio

  • The Under Armour Scorpio uses the brand’s Micro G Foam that provides soft cushioning. This technology absorbs shock and releases energy during toe-off for a more responsive ride.
  • In order to deliver a responsive and smoother heel-to-toe transition, the shoe uses the anatomical flex grooves. It is flexible enough to provide aggressive responsiveness.
  • The shoe also uses a blown carbon rubber that delivers not only durability but also added traction while running on wet surfaces.

Under Armour Scorpio size and fit

The Under Armour Scorpio has a standard sizing. The heel and midfoot offer a snug fit and the shoe has a roomy toe box. It is available in standard widths. Runners with medium to slightly-wider feet should have no trouble getting their comfort zone in this shoe.


Outsole

The Scorpio is cleats-inspired with blown and carbon rubber mixture that delivers greater traction on wet condition without adding weight. The Anatomical flex grooves are designed for a smoother heel to toe transition.


Midsole

The midsole of the shoe features the injected Micro G Foam that delivers soft cushioning. It is also designed to provide a responsive ride. The midsole also has a full-length TPU shank for enhanced stability. The molded 4D foam that follows the natural shape of the foot is placed strategically to eliminate slippage.


Upper

A stretchable and ultra breathable upper is used in the shoe. It allows for maximum breathability. The welded overlays are also used to add more support, particularly around the midfoot area. The molded tongue has perforations for ventilation.
