Originally, the UA Charged CoolSwitch debuted on UA.com for $100 in one colorway.
Now, the ultra-lightweight runner is available in seven colorways for $80 each in US sizes 7 to 15. However, some shoes are still marked at $100, so it looks like more release issues for the latest UA runner. For this minimalist shoe, the new price point makes a bit more sense.
The UA CoolSwitch uses an exclusive coating on the inside of the shoe that pulls heat away from the foot in order to cool the wearer for longer use. (It is the same porcelain coating used on UA’s CoolSwitch clothing.)
Moreover, there is 360° ventilation and, underfoot, a two-piece Charged Cushioning midsole that sits atop a rubber outsole.
