Under Armour will soon be adding a new model to its basketball lineup and we believe this is it. Meet the UA Heat Seeker.
Aesthetically, this sneaker features very clean lines with the UA Drive 4 tooling while the upper remains just as sleek with the engineered knit build.
As we previously reported, this shoe uses tooling from the UA Drive 4 which included an aggressive herringbone pattern, an EVA midsole, and exposed Micro G in the heel. This is a shoe catered towards those that prefer low profile responsiveness in their hoop shoes vs. someone that wants to feel like they’re being catapulted out of the gym.
Along with the reused tooling comes a brand new engineered knit upper that is nearly identical to what it currently being used on the Curry 4. Seamless heat welded panels are implemented into high-wear areas and there is a nice TPU heel counter for support.
As a Warriors fan I’m loving the colorway — everything from the two-toned upper to the paint speckles on the midsole. If Under Armour can make blue and gold look this good then I can’t wait to see what it’s able to do with a black/red or black/white.
According to @FlashSole, the Under Armour Heat Seeker is due to release sometime in December for $115. That isn’t a bad price point for what you receive.
