I try to mix up the makes and models of my running shoes, but somehow I never ran in Under Armour shoes until now. I just got to test drive the UA HOVR™ Sonics.
I'm so glad I did. I think this shoe will become a regular resident in my closet. Keep reading to learn more about the shoe, and why I like it so much.
Fresh Out of the Box
First, let's all take a minute to look at these beauties. I love the graphite color and the open mesh upper. The shoe has tons of cushion, but it's still sleek. It just looks fast, doesn't it?

There are two editions of the UA HOVR™ Sonic: Connected and Non-connected. My shoes were non-connected, which means they don't have a sensor to sync data to an app on my phone. I may try the connected version on my next pair.
There are color options, too. Below are a few of the choices available.

The Fine Details
These shoes are light. They weigh 8 ounces/225 mg. The upper is made of very breathable mesh. There's ventilation on the top and sides. That's a huge selling point when you run in Florida in the Summer. 🙋♀️
50 Miles of Road and Trail Testing
I've worn the UA HOVR™ Sonics for running trails and roads. I also spent a full Saturday walking around town in them. Happy feet all the way.
I'm sold. 50 miles in and these shoes look and feel great on my feet. I did hill repeats in them this morning. I'm very happy with the way they respond.
The UA HOVR™ Connected version links to the Map My Run app and gives you data on your runs. Cost is $110 for Connected; $100 for Non-connected.
I hope this review helps you decide if you'd like to run in UA HOVR™ Sonics. See you at the starting line!
