The low-top UA Slingride 2 is offered in US men’s and women’s sizes. A significant number of wearers advised that the shoe’s sizing is accurate. Its knit upper delivers a breathable and compression-like fit.

The Under Armour Slingride 2 showcases a fully knit upper which has perforations along the toe box and dash patterns across the sides. Because of the modest design and essentially neutral color variants, the sneaker can blend naturally with a multitude of casual outfits. Men and women will find no issues incorporating the UA Slingride 2 with their everyday clothing, casual workday attire, and holiday fashion ensembles.

The midsole of this shoe combine the Charged Cushioning® tech and lightweight EVA foam to provide optimal cushioning and responsiveness. Its Molded Micro G® insole not only offers additional cushioning but also molds to the shape of the foot. Also, the firm external heel counter is there to deliver support.

Under Armour is still considered relatively new in the athletic products business. The company started in 1996, but due to the qualities of its products, UA’s rise to prominence can be called “meteoric.” It began with the manufacturing of moisture-wicking undershirts, which is the result of the founder's extensive research on fabric.

Later, UA ventured into making performance footwear. Barely after two decades after the brand’s inception, it is widely regarded as the third most popular athletic label, just right below Nike and Adidas. Its first shoes were made for soccer, which popular NFL players such as Eric Ogbobu endorsed. Eventually, UA managed to land the most famous NFL player, Tom Brady, to promote the brand. As predicted, the company branched out to other sports, namely basketball, baseball, softball, and lacrosse.

Similar to its competitors, Under Armour looks forward to establishing itself as a fixture on the lifestyle category. By enhancing the comfort and support features of its performance shoes, the brand was able to produce sneakers that resonated well with sneakerheads and casual consumers.

One of UA’s recent lifestyle shoe releases is the Under Armour Slingride 2. Released in 2018, this model is an addition to the growing Slingride collection, which mainly consists of running shoes. Offered for both men and women, it has a variety of color schemes that many would find pleasing.  

  • The insole is not removable.
  • The Slingride 2's approximate weight is 8.9 oz.
  • Currently, the color variants for men are Black, City Khaki, Artillery Green, Techno Teal, and Radio Red.
  • For women, the colorways available are Black, Ghost Gray, Radio Red, Flushed Pink, and Washed Blue.
