Updates to Under Armour SpeedForm RC
- The brand utilizes the SpeedForm technology in its latest creation. The technology is used on the shoe’s upper. It includes an anatomic toe molding design for a snug fit and ultrasonic welded seams with a Bemis tape for a next-to-skin comfort. It also has an external heel counter, which helps in locking the foot in place.
- Moreover, a silicone grip around the heel area ensures a protective lockdown. There are perforations on the top, which provide an optimal level of air circulation inside the shoe, therefore keeping the runner’s feet cool and dry.
- The midsole unit’s Micro G foam, an extremely lightweight material, gives a responsive ride. The shoe also has the 4D foam sock liner, a flexible add-on that offers moisture-dispersal and additional cushioning.
- The presence of the UA Light Speed Grip on the shoe’s outsole ensures durability and firm grip on the ground during the running sessions. The anatomical design of the outsole allows the consumer to follow the natural running gait.
Under Armour SpeedForm RC size and fit
The Under Armour SpeedForm RC stays true to size. It accommodates runners with medium sized feet. The shoe comes in the standard length. The men and women’s versions have the standard medium widths of B and D, respectively.
The Under Armour SpeedForm RC uses the UA Light Speed Grip on its outsole. It is a rubber compound placed strategically to ensure the platform’s durability and a firm grip on the ground.
Overall, the anatomical design of the shoe’s outsole enables it to adapt well to the natural shape of the runner’s foot. This helps a wearer when it comes to following a natural gait during the run.
The Micro G technology used in the midsole is an extremely soft and responsive material. It absorbs the unnecessary impact and adds a nice bounce to every stride. The Micro G technology has been used in some Under Armour running shoes like the Micro G Assert 7 and Micro G Pulse II.
The shoe also utilizes the 4G sockliner for additional comfort and flexibility. In addition to adjusting comfortably to the runner’s foot, it also has the ability to draw off moisture, therefore keeping the foot dry.
The cleverly designed upper adjusts well to the various running movements and wraps itself snugly around the foot. At the same time, the perforations allow air to enter, thereby maintaining optimal breathability.
The ultrasonically welded seams in the upper and the Bemis tape provide a soft and seamless feel against the skin.
The Silicone Grip around the heel section protects this area during the run. This rubber material is very flexible and surrounds the heel area by adjusting according to its shape. Resultantly, a secure locked-in fit is assured while the runner is on the go.
The external heel counter adds to the snug fit. It locks down the rear of the foot and protects it by preventing accidental wobbling during the run.
