The most painful shoe I've ever worn.

First off, I don't actually think these shoes are USUALLY deserving of the 1* rating I'm giving, but in my case, they are. I'll be as descriptive as possible so potential buyers can be aware of what to look out for, I think it's possible I got a bad pair of a good shoe. *cries* At first they seemed great, felt comfortable and had great features but I quickly came to learn that they were only a nuisance. I very quickly started getting blisters on the inner arches of my feet caused by the insoles actually rubbing through my socks, the blisters would tend to be around 1-2 inches long (more than a month later they're still not healed haha) The cadence feature in the shoe/app is wrong, the shoe/app is telling me to run at comically high cadences giving me the appearnlance of the Tazmanian devil spinning his feet. They seem to aim for the mystical golden 180 spm figure for everyone... 180 spm is only an average among professional runners, all of whom are lightweight bread for purpose runners... I am a heavier, bigger built person who gets far better results and less pain/wear from running at a lower cadence of 160-170. That fact that this isn't customisable is surprising. The pain... My god the pain! I can't be sure what it's from but every time I run in these shoes I get excruciating shooting pains in the outsides of my feet, I believe it's where the propulsion plate ends and causes excessive and unnecessary pressure on part of my foot that should not be bending (these shoes were fitted and selected by an UA employee in an UA store in Riyadh) and if I don't stop my run early enough I'll have a limp for a couple of days and won't be able to run. My nice expensive Machinas have now need relegated to the back of the shoe rack and I've gone back to my VERY old back up shoes.

TOO SMALL, PAINFUL

VERY DISAPPOINTED, I ordered my size and all, I used them because I thought it was about giving it a few hours or maybe a couple of days to get use to them and that they get loose on my feet, you know, new shoes thing. But NO, never happened, it is sad that such a good shoe has this unwearable issues. Because your feet get so trapped that they get in pain at some point. Now, personally for myself, an interexchange student that makes $200 a week in the USA (yes, there's people like me making that amount of money) is really sad to have spent a week salary on something I won't be able to use, so for me and my pocket is a TREMENDOUS LOSS. The worst part is that I see that UA really don't care about all these comments and mine about the observations and basically real complaints. They just say they will improve it and bla bla... which means nothing because clients loose, the company does not. Anyway, I decided to write this review after months because so that I can be heard somehow, I'll make a YouTube video about it, if you read this THINK TWICE before buying these, the bluetooth technology and coaching caught my attention and the neon fucsia color no other brand has, I decided to make an effort and buy them, now I really regret.

I wish I could love them.

I have tried so hard to love these shoes. I bought them for distance running because I liked the idea of it tracking my steps and coaching me. It became clear quickly, these shoes are not for distance running. They track my steps great and I do enjoy the coaching. However, I do not enjoy the blisters I get after EVERY run in them. I have the correct size and I have tried thicker socks and thinner socks. The issue is in the way the tongue is attached to the shoe. The piece that connects the tongue to the shoe constantly runs my foot. I've run enough in them to have them broke in but they just aren't working. I give them two stars because the tracking is great and if you are looking for more of a walking shoe then maybe it's the shoe for you but for me I am super dissatisfied.

Very Stiff

Ordered shoe half size bigger good thing! Overall shoe is very stiff and heavy. If you are a forefoot runner I would not recommend. Shoe is very padded - too much shoe to run in.

Nice, but not for over-pronators

Shoe had nice footbed, comfortable, but not for this over-pronator, not enough arch

Not suitable for wide feet

I wanted to love this shoe after being recommended it by so many however I have had to send it back as they are so narrow in width. Would love it if Under Armour offered a wider width in some of their shoes for people with short but wide feet. Thanks

Machina

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I enjoyed testing out the shoes. I do think that they run a little small and are slightly heavy for long distance runners but are great for a 3-5 mile run. I do also enjoy the personal coach and thought that the times are helpful.

Love the Shoes.. Just disappointed with the color

I love the shoes. Very comfortable. Have no complaints at all. Perfect for me because am training myself to run. My disappointment is just the color. I ordered for RED thinking it is color RED but the shoes is more in the orange color. But other than that, its perfect.

Best HOVR Product!

I love these shoes, they’re pricy but definitely worth it. They’re extremely comfy and I love the cushion in the tongue. I can’t give it 5 stars though because although I know these are run specific, I like doing mini workouts in between like jump lunges etc. so when doing them the shoe feels like it’s gonna slip off my foot, but like I said I know it’s run specific. Just needs to feel a little more snug on my foot

Love the shoe...

hate the technology. You can't use same username for more than one app and shoes still won't complete setup process even after calling support.
