UA Velociti 2 Running Shoe Review

Let’s get hands-on with the UA Velociti 2 running shoe from Under Armour. This is a neutral running shoe that uses UA’s HOVR foam – for a cushioned and energetic feel. UA likes to call it the “zero gravity feel.” Is this the right running shoe for you? We’ll try to give you some insights in this review. Here’s some of the styles that are available now (we are an Under Armour affiliate): Let’s take a look. UA HOVR Velociti 2 Running Shoe – Fit & Sizing This shoe runs true to size. I bought a Men’s Size 11 and the fit is good. I wear an 11 in most Reebok and Nike running shoes – so hopefully that gives you some grounds for comparison. The length and width are right where I’d expect them to be. It’s not a super-wide shoe – but I don’t have wide feet. I’d recommend you order in your regular shoe size.

Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 36 Trail Running Shoe Review

Recently Nike revised the trail shoe version of their Pegasus 36 line of running shoes. The Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 36 Trail Running Shoe is a moderate option for an off-pavement trail running shoe. What do we mean by that? That’s what we’ll discuss in this review. Where can you get it? Road Runner Sports: All right, let’s take a look. Nike Air Zoom Pegasus Trail Running Shoe Hands On Review on YouTube We featured this shoe as part of our Nike Trail Shoe Shootout 2020: Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 36 Trail Running Shoe – Sizing, Fit, and Feel This shoe runs true to size.
