Under Armour FUTR X ELITE

Under Armour FUTR X ELITE review
Watch the full review

The Under Armour FUTR X ELITE is a weird basketball shoe, not in a bad way, but there really isn’t another performance basketball shoe out there quite like the FUTR X. Traction is top-notch, cushioning is responsive and speedy, support and containment are awesome, the one sticking point is the fit. You might love it, you might hate it, but in our opinion, it’s not optimal for performance.

A solution might be going down half a size, or, again, you might enjoy the shoe in your usual size (it’s just a weird build). One thing is for sure, IntelliKnit is very cool and we are looking forward to seeing it used on more Under Armour shoes in the future. Read the full review. Price: $

Curry Spawn Flotro

The original Under Armour Anatomix Spawn was an interesting model. First off, it was never a Curry shoe. Steph wore it a lot, but it wasn’t a signature shoe. It was also a great performance model, and adding Flow tech to the shoe, in this case, doesn’t improve it’s on-court performance. The original featured a podded herringbone traction pattern and Micro G cushioning, and it was excellent. Incorporating Flow doesn’t make the shoe worse, it’s just different, but not better. This is a weird shoe to retro, but if you a Curry fan, this is a nice pick-up. Price: $140

Curry 4 Low Flotro

The original Curry 4 was a great, low-profile, and reactive hoop shoe. The original Curry 4 low on the other hand was awful. It fit way too snug and was unbearable to play in. We have also seen a high-top flotro version of the Curry 4 which was amazing. Well, we are pleased to inform you that these are also great and nothing like their low-top predecessors.

The flotro system provides excellent traction and a very nice low profile, durable, and reactive cushioning setup. It isn’t the most plush cushioning but it is great for speedier players. Price: $130

Under Armour Curry 10

The Under Armour Curry 10 is an improved version of an already great shoe, the Curry 9. The shoe features Under Armour’s Flow cushioning/ traction system. Flow offers great impact protection, a seamless ride from heel to toe, and incredible traction. It’s perfect for guards as it’s almost like a running shoe beefed up for basketball. The Curry 10 also features an upgraded Warp 2.0 upper that’s super comfortable. Read full review. Price: $160

Under Armour Curry 2 / Curry 2 Flotro

The Under Armour Curry 2 is back once again and it is better than ever. And,if that weren’t enough we also have an upgraded version of the shoe with the Under Armour Curry 2 Flotro. The OG Curry offers elite traction, reactive and stable cushioning (which is slightly plusher than the 2015 version) and an improved fit. The Flotro version of the shoe comes with UA’s FLow technology and is a slightly better option if we are talking about on court performance. Price: $160.

Under Armour Slipspeed

Watch review

The Under Armour Slipspeed is one of the weirdest training shoes ever made. It is at the same time a casual shoe slip-on and a fully functional performance training shoe. The UA Slipspeed features Flow technology (as we see on Steph Curry’s shoes), a BOA lacing system, and a detached heel collar, making these shoes unique. That heel piece can be folded down comfortably, turning the shoe into a slip-on for casual use, pretty neat. If you flip the collar up, you have a high-performance training shoe. The shoe is machine washable and they fit true to size. Retail price: $150

Best Under Armour Basketball Shoe Overall

Under Armour Curry 10

The Under Armour Curry 10 is easily Under Armour’s best hoop shoe and one of the best basketball shoes of the year. That Flow midsole offers a smooth and supportive ride on court that is hard to beat and has some of the best traction on the market today. This is a particularly great option for shifty and mobile point guards and shooting guards alike. Read full review. Price: $160

Under Armour History

Under Armour was created because Plank, who played football at the University of Maryland, wanted to upgrade the practice gear to improve performance and comfort for the athletes.  The first innovation Under Armour became known for was a T-shirt made with a moisture-wicking synthetic fabric to be worn under the player’s pads to keep athletes cool, dry, and light.

Since then, Under Armour has become one of the leading athletic footwear and apparel brands in the world and signed such athletes as Stephen Curry, Tom Brady, Joel Embiid and even celebrities like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
