Update on previous review: Some cosmetic issues and one week review

Just to add to my previous review. I have worn these shoes for about a week, albeit indoors, but I have done a fair bit of running on treadmills. The shoes are no where near as comfortable as their predecessor, and almost feel stiff. I was expecting (like its predecessor) a snug sock like fit. The shoes run large, I'm usually an 8.5US in underarmour and I have these shoes in 8US. They're still a little big, perhaps a 7.5US would be better, although they don't seem to make 7.5US shoes! What's definitely a problem with this shoe is the cosmetics. If you look at the photos attached, you can see average paint jobs, and there's a lot of glue around the plastic heelcap showing. It's like there was no quality control here! Just FYI the stress in the foam is because I have used the shoes for a week; when it came the foam was brand new looking. All in all, I would not recommend this shoe. They run at least half a size bigger, if not a whole size bigger than the rest of the underarmour line. They are far less comfortable than their predecessor (which by the way, are a fabulous shoe). Oh yeah and there are only two lines of shoe lace holes to adjust the feel of the shoe, where as the original slingshot had three! Lastly, there doesn't seem to be much quality control on the shoe. I have two pairs as I was trying out two sizes, and they both suffer from these aforementioned cosmetic issues.

  • Clearly see the glue around the plastic heel cap
  • The black paint line is not straight and you can clearly see a little indent
  • This is awful! It looks like it's been worn already and the paint is coming off. But the shoe is basically brand new and has only been worn for a week

Slingshot 2 runs large!

Have not owned these long but these run much larger than the original slingshot. I am an 8.5US in the original slingshot. In these I decided to get an 8US as another reviewer said the slingshot 2 runs large. Sadly, it is still a bit big. I would suggest to get a half size down or even a size down from whatever you usually wear with underarmour (I am an 8.5US in other underarmour shoes). As for performance, I have not used these much so I can't say. But compared to the original slingshot, these feel more clunky and less like a sock. However, it may be because I haven't broken these in yet! Also, at first glance these look quite nice. But on further inspection, it seems the build quality isn't great. I can clearly see glue where the plastic heel thing has been glued on. And the connection between the upper and sole doesn't look seemless. These issues weren't apparent on the original slingshot!

Sadly not impressed...

I was hoping to have found another minimalist style running shoe (not barefoot). These have almost zero forefoot cushioning. I have had other shoes with burrito style tongue but these shoes I question how well would stay in place. The lacing system is pretty awful. Could definitely see pressure points while running any distance. I don't need structure, but these are pretty flimsy and question the lateral strength and comfort running up and down steeper inclines/declines. For reference in gauging whether my thoughts may apply to you; I run 5k's to full marathons and have put on 2250km so far in 2018...

Excellent Shoe

This is a great UA shoe (I bought the white/gold/black and the black/white ones) that's good to use for just about anything. I've used these for squats, running/stairclimbing and wearing out and about after the gym. Keep in mind, these shoes are designed to be worn sockless for maximum performance. After four very heavy workouts, I have noticed some lingering odor but it isn't anything a blast of anti-bac spray can't handle. You can also machine wash these on the delicate cycle and air dry; don't let them tumble.

Best shoe made

Its the best made, the most comfortable and its so light you can hardly tell you have shoes on!

Great but run big

Great shoes that remind me a lot of the old speedforms. I'm glad UA are still making low profile, minimal designs like this. The toe box is wide and the heal drop is relatively low, making these great not just for running but also working out. The only gripe I have is that these run a half size too large when compared to other UA shoes, and I've owned quite a few. I usually wear an 8.5 but I'm going to try the 8 and hopefully they fit properly. Other than that, quality and fit and finish are great.
