Review Summary

Best running shoe I've owned.

I bought these shoes mainly to do weight lifting in instead of using my running shoes. On a work trip i forgot my running shoes and decided to just use these instead. I was so suprised at the comfort. I ran 10 miles and felt better than the dedicated running shoes i had before. I am very disapointed to find out i cant find the speedtire lows anywhere online. I hope they continue to make them.

Please don't cancel these shoes!

I'm new to running and trail running so I don't have a vast range of experience. However, these shoes are awesome. They've done everything I throw at them from road runs, trail runs, dirt roads, day hiking and even crossfit classes. They have become the shoe that I go to for anything active. They are cushioned, but not mushy. Stable but not stiff. Water resistent without being sweaty. They have awesome grip. I'm looking forward to trying them on the ice and snow this winter. Even though the lacing system is over-engineered for the task it performs, it does that job really well! If I every see another size 8 for sale I'm going to grab a couple more pair to make sure I have them for a while. Please don't cancel production of these shoes!

Even Better than I Thought!

I bought this on a bit of a whim ... I was looking for trail running shoes that could handle Winter trails,still be used in the summer and weren't too bulky. I overpronate and usually only stick to Stability running shoes. But, there was something about the look of these shoes. I figured I would try them on and see. Upon receiving them, I carefully put them without removing the tags and hit the treadmill. 5km later, no pain! They were keepers. The insole does offer some arch support. So far ... I have used them on wet, snow slushy and icy surfaces. Aside for a very icy trail (where I used crampons), the traction has always been great --even on icy sidewalks while running. So far, the only surface where the traction has been less than near-perfect is the ceramic floor at the mall --which is not where one typically wears these! They have always stayed dry and confortable. I've also used them at the gym a number of times and I've even worn them at the office. I particularly like the fact that the mid section is a sock. It looks as if you are wearing shoes! Stylish ones at that! The only down side is putting them on .... getting your foot into that sock liner is a bit of a challenge at first but becomes easier (without ever been easy) over time.

Great for on the go!

I bought these shoes for myself because UA doesn’t make them for women’s. I bought the smallest size and it fits well for a women’s size 8/8.5! I swear on these shoes for all of the seasons and even managed to wear them during winter (0 to -3/4). Also great for every day dog walks in the park! They’re great for on the go due to the speed laces. 10/10 RECOMMEND: 100% waterproof, great for trailing running/hiking. My sisters are super jealous because they’re honestly some of the best lightweight and breathable shoes I’ve bought.


Used these babys for the Spartan Super Race (8k+ 20+ obstacles) in rough terrain; dirt, mud, sand and water. Shoes held up well in all conditions. Ankle collar keeps out rock debris and mud which is a major + when running in obstacle course races. Shoe does a great job of pushing out excess water after being fully submerge. The Michelin outsole responds and grips well.This lacing system just adds to the shoes excellent engineering. AWESOME LACING SYSTEM! This shoe is one of the reasons why I continue to be a fan of UA products! *UA, PLEASE DO NOT STOP MAKING THESE SHOES!!!*

Best Shoes Ever

I use these shoes for everything. I wear them to work. I fixed my roof in them. I run in them. I lounge in them. I even wore them tubing down the Brazos River, and they showed no signs of wear after 2 hours of river walking. The ankle support removes rubbing from my ankles and heel so the shoes are extremely comfortable. The steel laces do not wear out. This is a perfect shoe!

Great Runner

I use these as my runners . Great shoe . Good arch support and light . Only issue is you have to run with mid size socks with them or they will ruin your feet . With long socks these are some of the top distance runners . Sure, they're made for trail but they can definitely be used for cross country , These Fat Tires are very underappreciated and hard to find because they are not the prettiest looking shoe . I assure you these are awesome . I would recommend these to anyone who is on their feet all day like nurses , waitresses, curriers , etc. The look grows on you .

Comfortable but wears out fast

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Shoe fits well and got a lot of compliments. However, sole already worn out after one month of regular walking around.

worth it

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The design is great, better than they other tire designs, conversation shoe, best grip I've ever had in a shoe.

Not for me

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] These shoes were not for me. They had a weird fit in the heel area that rubbed my heel raw, even with socks. I like to think I have tough feet but i could not withstand these shoes. Returned
