The Under Armour HOVR Phantom 2, designed for those new to running to athletes who are looking to add more mileage to their training, hit store shelves and UA.com today with a MSRP of $150.
The UA HOVR Phantom 2 follows in the footsteps of previous UA HOVR Phantom models with improved design and performance features such as more cushioning, better fit and feel, and connected footwear benefits like training plans via MapMyRun.
A new, stretchy, sock-like fit, a soft, supportive midfoot and a durable, flexible outsole make the UA HOVR Phantom 2 “the fastest, most comfortable update yet,” according to the company.
“We wanted the new UA HOVR Phantom 2 to be the most ‘runnable’ version yet, so the priority was to really lock in on the performance solutions,” explains Ed Wallace, Under Armour Footwear Designer, Run. “Traction, flexibility and cushioning were the major upgrades in creating the new platform, while fit and breathability were crucial to designing the upper. Together, these improved features enable you to feel ready to go the instant you lace up."
More UA HOVR cushioning means more energy return and a lightly padded step. That way, when runners hit the pavement all they feel is bouncy comfort. UA’s HOVR cushioning platform strikes a balance of plush cushioning and responsiveness, so runners get the support they need without sacrificing any speed.
The UA HOVR Phantom 2 is designed to feel softer and smoother, with a built-in sockliner inspired by bike chamois (the padding in bike shorts), which gives runners instant step-in comfort.
In addition. A more anatomically designed collar, more breathable upper and improved knit material give the UA HOVR Phantom 2 a sock-like fit. The collar dips lower than previous models to fit comfortably around the ankle bone, making it easier to slide on and off. A soft, stretchy upper hugs the foot with a plush SpeedForm 2.0 sockliner and molded midfoot, for cushion and support. The upper material over the toe and forefoot has been adapted with perforations, making it more breathable so your feet can stay cool when you’re running hot.
