Become an expert
  • The Under Armour Speed Swift 2 is a road running shoe that is intended for runners who have neutral foot motion. It uses a breathable and lightweight mesh upper. This technology aims to give the runner's foot more agreeable coverage.
  • Featured on the outsole is the solid rubber for added durability. It provides enough traction on a wide range of surfaces.
  • The midsole utilizes the full-length Micro G foam which is essential in cushioning the foot throughout the road running sessions.

The Under Armour Speed Swift 2 follows the standard shoe measurements when it comes to sizing. The shoe is best for runners who want to take long and short-distance road running activities to the next level. The available widths are B - Medium for the women's version and D - Medium and 2E - Wide for the men's version. Under Armour is also selling other running shoe models for wide feet.

The solid rubber is integrated into the Under Armour Speed Swift 2. This abrasion-resistant rubber compound aims to deliver more traction on various types of surfaces. This material is strategically placed on the product for added support and protection, as well.

Turning cushioned landings and smooth and explosive heel-to-toe transitions are offered by the full-length Micro G foam. The material primarily acts as a shock absorber and additional layer of protection. It is essential in ensuring that the runner's foot is cushioned throughout the running activities.

Additional cushioning to the underfoot section is provided by the EVA sock liner. This technology's purpose is to provide a more customized comfort to the wearer.

Increased ventilation is delivered by the breathable and lightweight mesh. The manufacturers of this product made this component of the shoe to allow a healthier inflow and outflow of air. This technology keeps the runner's foot fresh and dry while on the roads.

For enhanced durability, a bonded film is added in the midfoot area. Because of its lightweight structure, it doesn't affect the overall weight of the product.
