Run Oregon is Kickin’ It in the UA HOVR Infinite

The Under Armour HOVR Infinite is the neutral running shoe designed for everyone, and any running goal. In order to develop this shoe, UA polled the pros and asked them “what do you need in your shoes?”. They responded with, “cushion, bounce, durability, and efficiency”. UA then, and still does, strive to fit all of those desires into this neutral powerhouse.

The HOVR Infinite is suited for you every-day run, to your race day romps. These shoes can keep up on the track and last through the long runs. They are noticeably lightweight and the cushion, responsive, giving you an extra pep in your step (or stride). Cushioning in this shoe is designed to give the runner an almost “zero gravity feel”, which in turn curbs fatigue and injury. The sole of the show is right in line with what I am used to, band it provided a subtle push forward, which I am thankful for.

The shoe itself has a mesh upper, providing flexible support and eliminates spots of potential rubbing. There is no slipping in the heel even when moving form a mid-foot strike to the sprint on the toes. The mesh is also highly reflective, from all angles. With the season necessitating most of my runs in the twilight or dark this feature is greatly appreciated. Sometimes you do not even understand some of you shoe must-haves until you find one that gives you something a little extra.

Overall, UA sought to create the perfect neutral shoe, designed for anything your training throws at you. They have succeeded. The HOVR Infinite provides support and comfort, bounce and strength, and speed and durability. This shoe is the perfect addition to your ever-changing running experience.

For those who use MapMyRun, or those who want to, these shoes can auto connect to track & analyzes your running metrics to help make you a better runner.
