UA HOVR Velociti 2
The Infinite follows the HOVR Phantom and Sonic that were introduced last year, both of which will have their second version later this spring. Under Armour has also revealed the HOVR Guardian and HOVR Velociti 2, with the former being designed for long-distance running and the latter as a tempo trainer for smoother runs. Under Armour’s HOVR Velociti 2 is what happens when you combine the responsiveness of a racing flat with the support of an everyday trainer. The shoe feels stiff and gives enough cushioning to keep you from beating up your legs, but it’s still firm enough to be responsive underfoot. It’s snappy once you’re up to speed and our testers praised the outsole’s all-weather grip. The upper is relatively narrow, so wider-footed runners might want to go up a half-size.Regardless of the connectivity aspects, the HOVRs have to be comfortable running sneakers, and many runners still prefer Nike, Adidas, Asics and other brands over Under Armour.
