UA - Finally has a winner

The HOVR Sonic Running Shoes were tested out by me in a study conducted at my work. I got to do some treadmill work with them and found them to be comfortable and stable. They are on the lighter side and may be a little too soft in the sole which raises concern as to how quickly they'll wear down. There is a good amount of support with a rigid heel cup that gives some flexibility. I like the support at the arch as well. Unfortunately every color in size 9.5 is sold out except for the white/grey. I would love to pick up another pair as I'm training for a marathon and will likely need a few pairs to keep up with my mileage this year. Hope to have them have stock soon.

Really Nice

I do really like these shoes, they are so comfortable and beautiful.

Awesome running shoes for flat ground and treadmills!

UA Sizing is never the same

I have owned a few pairs of the bandits and LOVED them. I normally wear a 9.5 in other shoes but found I had to get a 10.5 in those. I was excited to get the HOVRs and got the same 10.5 that i had in the other shoes but it was too big. I exchanged for the 10 and knew they were a touch big but thought they would be fine. Unfortunately it seems they are a full size off from their other shoes because my toe is making the fabric distort on the top of the shoe. I've also tried other shoes by UA and the sizing seems to be all over the place. It makes it difficult to buy their shoes without trying on 3 different sizes and has kept me from ordering some of the other lines (Project Rock). Overall, they are comfortable and breath very well but don't trust them for long runs due to the sizing.

Shoes are very comfortable

I've had a couple foot surgeries, so a lot of shoes are uncomfortable. These were a little stiff at first, but once they broke in it was very comfortable. I use them for cardio, workouts and just running around. I'd definitely recommend them.

Great shoe with even greater potential.

I picked up a pair of Sonic's in the later stages of training for my first marathon. I was cycling through a pair of Apollo 2's and Gemini 3's but with the increased milage I was afraid they wouldn't make it to race day. I was very pleased with the initial feel of the Hovr Sonics. It was a much softer ride than I was used to. Soft , but not squishy which was perfect for all the road miles I had in the heat of August. Fit was snug, but comfortable. No blisters or hotspots and I was using these mostly on long runs so they we're tested early and often. Two points that, while still content with, could improve are 1: They lost that responsiveness a little earlier in the run than I'd hoped. Perfect for a half marathon, but after around 25k, there was little bounce back left. It would return after a day off, but still, I'd have loved that feel right through the 42.2k I ran. 2: durability was acceptable, but I saw pretty noticable wear on the forefoot treds (strange, as I'm a midfoot striker) after less than 200k. I've put another 200k on and the treads are still holding up but I was worried early on. Over all I loved these shoes and would suggest them to any runner as long as they are part of a few pairs, or for lower milage training and runs.

Excellent Shoe

Hands down one of the best running shoes on the market. The shoe performs very well both running and simply working out. Although marketed as a running shoe it can be used for dual purpose.

Good for walking...

Not a runner but these are great walkers. Excellent design for good stride and mechanics. Good cushion, too.

Ridiculously comfortable.

These shoes are super comfortable, it makes you want to wear them even when you don't need to. Order half a size up and you are good to go! Great color selection, too.


I decided to throw away my Nike's, since they decided to go with a spokesman who I don't agree with, I am a vet and I love my flag and my country. So I went looking for new shoes and came across UA shoes. I have bought my first pair and wow, they feel really good on my feet, and I have lousy feet and a lot of pain. These are light, airy and feel really good on my feet, I wear them all day and they put my Nike's to shame. I will continue to buy UA from now on and I will recommend these to all my friends from now on. Great shoe!
