  • Under Armour presents the Toccoa, a running shoe for the trails. The highly-energizing cushioning makes this running wear suitable for those who require little to no arch support.
  • The upper features a combination of durable ripstop and leather, as well as synthetic webbing, for comfort and support.
  • The EVA midsole and sock liner deliver a responsive ride, while the rubber outsole provides traction and resists abrasions.

The Under Armour Toccoa has a standard running shoe length. The forefoot and midfoot areas are quite ample, thus yielding a comfortable fit for runners with a moderate to high foot volume. However, the toe box runs short and narrow; getting a half-size up is recommended to achieve a full toe splay. Width profiles are available in D – Medium, 2E – Wide, and 4E – Extra Wide for men, and B – Medium for women.

The Under Armour Toccoa aims to achieve optimum traction with its high-abrasion rubber outsole. This structure helps the shoe attain durability and resiliency.

Quadrilateral-shaped lugs are present in the length of the outsole to bring reliable traction on rough surfaces and technical trails.

A cushioned EVA foam serves as the midsole of the Toccoa. It offers a lightweight and responsive ride, resulting in a natural stride and an energized run.

The sock liner is a die-cut, full-length EVA that presents additional cushioning for the foot, as well as enhanced comfort and a customized fit.

The upper of this Under Armour shoe for running is a lightweight and durable leather combined with a sturdy ripstop textile. While leather is an unusual material to be used in a running shoe, it is there to help maintain durability and resiliency. On the other hand, the ripstop allows breathability and controls moisture-formation.

It has built-in webbing that acts as a framework that supplies support and structure, especially in the high-wear areas.

The padded collar and tongue also have built-in webbing to deliver additional comfort and hold. These elements also aim to protect the foot, thus promoting a problem-free run.

The heel area has a reflective strip to enable visibility while running in low-light conditions.

The closure system is traditional lace-up to enable a secure fit that is easily adjustable.
