Our Testers Thoughts on the Under Armour SlipSpeed Mega
- I was nervous about have the BOA® Fit System on a pair of running shoes, rather than traditional shoe laces, as it wasn’t something I was familar with but having the ability to fine to the fit I need is AMAZING.
What I Liked:
- I really like the convertible heal, having the ability just to slip them on to quickly but when I need the lock in, when putting on some miles, I can quickly and easily pull the heal up.
Areas of Improvement: - My biggest long term concern is the BOA system, and the longevity of it. This is my first pari of shoes that have this on them so I don’t have enough experience with it. Time will tell here.
- I have worn several UA shoes in the past and these by far are the most comfortable and cushioned UA shoes out there. They are true to size and with the ability to customize the feel, via the BOA® system gives you max comfort with just a turn of the dail.
- If you are looking for a great versatile shoe, these are the ones. Easy to slip on for a quick walk, errands or even after the gym to slipping fully into the shoe for your and locking in for your run or intense gym workout. I can’t stress enough the comfort in these Under Armour shoes, I can wear these all day.
Grounded in UA Flow Technology:
Rooted in UA Flow technology, the same proprietary foam compound used in Stephen Curry’s signature Curry Flow line, the SlipSpeed Mega delivers lightweight cushioning and pioneering traction for unrivaled comfort and performance.
