Updates to Under Armour SpeedForm Intake 2

  • The Under Armour SpeedForm Intake 2 is a road companion that’s designed for those who have neutral pronation. It makes use of a street-ready design that’s laced with sporty undertones to accommodate both casual shoe enthusiasts and athletic individuals. The upper unit features a multilayered mesh that offers breathability and protection from debris.
  • A compressed foam is used in the midsole unit of this running shoe. This full-length platform is responsible for carrying the foot and keeping it safe from the impact forces. A rubber compound covers the midsole and protects it from the abrasive nature of the asphalt.

Size and fit

The Under Armour SpeedForm Intake 2 was designed to be true to size. Runners are encouraged to get the size that most suits them. The width profiles are D – Medium for men and B – Medium for women. The semi-curved shape of this shoe’s last and the form-fitting silhouette work together to ensure a secure in-shoe experience.

Outsole

The outsole unit of the Under Armour SpeedForm Intake 2 makes use of a rubber compound that is highly resistant to abrasion. Its job is to shield the rest of the platform from the abrasive nature of the surfaces. It also doles out traction.

Forefoot flex grooves are responsible for heightening the bending capacity of the sole unit, allowing the foot to move more naturally as it goes through the gait cycle.

Midsole

The Charged Cushioning® foam is tasked with providing underfoot support throughout the running session. This compression-molded unit is hard-wearing yet responsive. It’s meant to resist sagging and maintain energized steps. The Charged Cushioning is also used in the midsole of Bandit 4 and other well-known UA running shoes.

An embedded sock liner adds a bit more cushioning for the underfoot without sacrificing flexibility.

Upper

A layered mesh encompasses the midfoot and forefoot sections of the Under Armour SpeedForm Intake 2’s upper unit. The goal of this fabric is to maintain ventilation while also preventing debris from entering the foot-chamber.

The UA SpeedForm® construction is made up of a stretchy textile that conforms to the shape of the heel. It prevents in-shoe wobbling and accidental shoe-removals.

An external heel counter reinforces the stretchy back portion of the upper. This add-on also locks the foot in place.
