In this installment of Test Shoot, you’re seeing the principal pieces of the Men’s Fall and Winter 16/17 UA Run Collection. Modeled and directed by the author of this very piece and photographed by Isaac McWhorter, the set seen is a combination of these elements: the UA Golden Age Jogger, UA Threadborne Siro 1/4 Zip, UA CoolSwitch Compression Tight, and UA SpeedForm Slingshot.
The set is designed for running, but, like many things in running apparel, it is perfectly acceptable gear for training of various activities. The comfort of the collection is excellent, and the Threadborne Siro is the most noteworthy in terms of comfort and ergonomic fit.
The SpeedForm Slingshot, however, is the most fitting piece in the set, being that it’s made almost entirely of knit yarn and foam; it’s one of the most unique forms of footwear today, even amongst the obvious leaders in the sneaker wars. While other companies like Nike and adidas have employed the use of knit fabric into footwear. lasted onto more avant-garde soles, the SpeedForm Slingshot’s use of a more conventional (but still very comfortable and responsive) Charged EVA midsole gives the shoe a more natural feel.
A special thank you to Under Armour.
