Under Armour has debuted its latest basketball sneaker, the UA Team NXT, and it costs just $100. Let’s see what it offers in terms of tech.
We knew this sneaker was coming but we didn’t have great images. Now, it’s available, and we’ve got all the tech specs.
For your $100 Under Armour is offering: a mesh upper that is coated with TPU yarn embroidery (for added structure), an articulated molded medial quarter panel, and an abrasion-resistant TPU toecap (for those toe drags). The asymmetrical hybrid entry system uses a breathable mesh tongue and webbed loop speed lacing.
The UA Team NXT sits atop a dual density midsole that combines Micro G foam and Charged Cushioning under the heel. Additionally, the die-cut EVA sockliner should add step-in comfort.
Finally, this latest shoe uses tried and true traction: a rubber outsole with full-length herringbone. There are also anatomical flex grooves in the forefoot for flexibility, and the shoe weighs 12.58 oz.
Months ago, a source at a well-known collegiate basketball program said that while playing in upcoming Under Armour basketball models, players enjoyed the UA Team NXT most because it played like a low and had interesting materials.
Would you consider the UA Team NXT based on its tech specs? I’m very curious about that Micro G…
The UA Team NXT is available now at UA.com for $100 in three colorways.
