UA HOVR Apex 2 Training Shoe Review

Let’s take a look at UA’s newest trainer, the UA HOVR Apex 2 Training Shoe. I’m a big fan of the Under Armour’s CrossFit shoe – the UA TriBase Reign 2. When I heard that UA was releasing a shoe that combined the stable “TriBase” with their HOVR foam – I just had to check it out. Here’s some of the styles that are available now (Note: We are an Under Armour affiliate) Let’s check it out. UA HOVR Apex 2 Training Shoe – Overview What’s special about this shoe? First, it uses UA’s HOVR technology to provide what they describe as a “zero gravity feel”. HOVR is soft foam that gives energy return – when you compress it, it returns to form in a crisp fashion. (It’s quite similar to Nike’s React foam, by the way). So, it gives some energy back, but it also helps eliminate impact – because it is cushioning after all. For a cross training shoe you need some cushion – but not too much. How does UA find the right balance of cushion and [Read more …]

Best Running Tights Review

Best women’s tights for running? We recommend the Women’s UA Qualifier Speedpocket Perforated Crop. Why? They are light-weight, provide a compression fit, and they have a pocket in the waist (center) that really works for carrying your phone.

Here’s some of the styles we’ll be reviewing today: (We are an Under Armour affiliate). Let’s take an up close look. Best Running Tights – Overview OK, what’s good about these tights? These put TIGHT into tights. They have an ultra-tight, second-skin fit for a locked-in feel. It’s energizing, and it makes you feel like you want to get up and go. And, it’s generally known that clothing with a light compression factor do seem to reduce muscle fatigue – and speed up your recovery. But, at the same time they are soft and comfortable. These have a decently high and wide waistband for good coverage and security. No embarrassment when bending over in these running tights. These have [Read more …]

Women’s UA Meridian Joggers

The UA Meridian line of performance wear is great – let’s look at the newest addition, the Women’s UA Meridian Joggers. What’s a “jogger”? This is a soft, cozy workout pant with a generous, relaxed fit. Why a jogger in the gym? Comfort – and no restrictions on your movement.

Women’s UA Meridian Crop – Cropped Workout Legging

The UA Meridian line of performance wear is great – let’s look at the newest addition, the Women’s UA Meridian Crop. What’s a “crop”? It’s like a Capri, basically. Capris are cropped pants where the leg ends just above the ankle. They can help keep you cooler – and they are a trendy look right now (and for the future.)

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. UA HOVR Foam – “Zero Gravity” Cushioning System This shoe uses UA’s HOVR™ technology. It’s a light-weight and crisp foam cushioning system [Read more …]
