Good to know

  • The Under Armour Surge SE features a mesh upper. This material is designed to provide the foot a comfortable and breathable coverage. The mesh comes with molded panels that are specifically placed in the midfoot area. The panels aim to provide added support while running.
  • In the outsole of the shoe are rubber pods and raise rubber tread. These materials work hand-in-hand to provide durability to the shoe. They also offer a good amount of traction on varied surfaces.
  • An EVA foam is used in the midsole of the Under Armour Surge SE. This offers responsive and powerful performance on different paved surfaces.

The available width options for the Under Armour Surge SE is Medium for both the men's and the women's versions. When it comes to size, the shoe runs true to size.

The outsole of the Under Armour Surge SE uses the gripping raised rubber tread. Like the New Balance 860 v9 which makes use of the blown rubber, both materials are essential in providing enough grip on a wide variety of paved surfaces. This tread reduces the possibility of slippage throughout the running session.

Integrated into the midsole is the EVA foam.  This lightweight material delivers durable underfoot cushioning throughout the run.

Along with the lightweight EVA foam is the full-length EVA sock liner. It delivers added comfort and enhanced underfoot cushioning.

In the upper of the shoe is the mesh material which aims to provide the foot proper ventilation, especially on warm running condition. Along with the mesh upper are the molded midfoot panel and the TPU overlays. The molded panels offer additional support to the foot while the TPU overlays aim to provide an improved fit and added structural durability.

When compared to the Nike Downshifter 7, both utilize a padded collar to encourage a more secure fit. It also offers added comfort, especially on the heel and ankle area.

The shoe features a lace-up closure that allows runners to easily adjust the shoe into a more personalized and comfortable fit.
