This personalized feature helps every runner ensure that their form doesn’t break down in the middle of a run by providing real-time, personalized guidance, helping runners better manage their risk of injury and improve their performance. If you’re like me and prefer a lighter-weight, low cushioned shoe, I would go with the Velociti 2 or Sonic 3. I would say that if you prefer the heavier and cushioned trainers, definitely go with the Machinas or Infinites. After using my Under Armour HOVR™ Mega 2 Clone for about a month, I thought it was time to share my thoughts about these shoes as well as the MapMyRun app. If you’re curious about Under Armour running shoes, I hope this review will help you decide whether they could be a good fit for you!

Other brands, like Asics, New Balance, and Hoka, use different midsole materials that create a similarly soft, pillowy feel. Generally speaking, you won’t get that sensation with Under Armour shoes. It’s no surprise that Under Armour’s latest release is another futuristic looking and eye-catching design. And, as always, you can count on Under Armour’s signature durability. I’ve had mine for months, and the outsole rubber shows only minimal wear. While it’s not a supremely bouncy trainer, it has plenty of cushioning and staying power for daily training runs. Unlike other pairs of running shoes, these ones felt really comfortable and adapted to my feet on the very first run, with the upper shoe working its magic. Honest reviewThe outsole of the HOVR Mega 2 Clone is very durable and built to stand the test of time. It features a textured lug pattern that provides plenty of traction, allowing you to run across a variety of hard surfaces with complete confidence. Our Sportsshoes.com Trail Running Ambassador, Ben Mounsey, has been busy putting the Under Armour HOVR Mega 2 Clone running shoesto the test. Here he provides a detailed review and compares them to the Under Armour Flow Velociti Wind. That broad derision, however, is based on an antiquated view of the brand. Under Armour has learned from its mistakes, and its recent shoes are better, with improved cushioning foams and supportive, well-fitting uppers. Despite the derision, many runners have found success with UA shoes: Most notably, Sharon Lokedi won the 2022 New York City Marathon wearing a pair of Flow Velociti Elites. The Velociti Wind 2 won praise from RW testers for its surprising durability and grip, and this new, updated design retains those attributes. The shoe still has a full-length layer of Flow cushioning, but it’s tweaked to be even softer and lighter, according to Under Armour. Finally, the outsole is made from a combination of lightweight blown rubber and tough carbon rubber. The blown rubber reduces weight, while the carbon rubber, placed under the heel, adds durability where you need it most. Both materials are scored with grooves, boosting the shoe’s flexibility.

All UA HOVR™ series shoes have a pod embedded in the midsole of the right shoe which, by the way, you can’t feel at all. The pod connects the shoe through Bluetooth to UA’s own MapMyRun app. I’ve been using this app for over a year now and before its discovery, I was using the Nike Run Club (NRC) app for YEARS. My opinion of MapMyRun was formed based on my long-term experience using the NRC app. Bluetooth can be hit or miss at times, but my experience connecting the shoes was very seamless. Connecting the shoes took only a few taps on my iPhone and they were connected in less than a minute. The Machinas are described as a trainer that’s designed for both speed and distance. The runner has an “uncaged midsole that provides the benefits of the soft HOVR™ cushioning without any extra weight”. You may have heard of the recent popularity in propulsion/carbon plates (to help with speed). The Machinas incorporate a carbon plate called the 2-pronged carbon-filled Pebax® spring plate to help with efficienc y. UA actually did a really good job with this. The consensus among many runners is the fact that the carbon plate adds a stiffness to the shoe. The Machinas, however, provide more flex allowing for more natural and “snappy” movements with your stride. Somehow UA also managed to make this shoe lightweight despite having 20% more cushioning than the Infinites. In summary, the Machinas are built for distance, but are versatile enough to use for tempo or speed runs. They may even be the shoe to help propel you towards your next PB marathon time.

The Running Hub

For everyday use (gym, lower mileage runs) you could get away with any of the above models, but I would say the shoe that best fits in this category is the Sonic 2 model. Where to Buy The Sonic 2 was the second shoe I tested in the HOVR™ line, which provides much less cushioning than the Infinite’s. UA describes the Sonics as, “the perfect blend of cushion and flex, and is all about the smooth & easy ride.” It’s as light as a tempo shoe, but with more cushioning and a super-smooth transition.” In my opinion, the Sonic 2 is more of a shoe for every runner; a good shoe for shorter runs and at the gym. If you are seeing quite a bit of discrepancy with distance yourself, there’s a great troubleshooting article on MapMyFitness that will walk you through the steps on proper calibration.

At the end of the day, the Hovr Sonic 6 is a well-rounded shoe for everyday training, especially if you prefer a leaner shoe without a ton of plush cushioning. The Infinite 2s are an obvious upgrade from the Infinites. The main difference is the design, look, and feel of the Upper Mesh. In UA’s words, “the HOVR™ Infinite 2 is more streamlined than the initial version. The technology and other features are exactly the same” Performance - tuned to be faster, softer, lighter. The ultimate running shoe for runners who want flexibility, cushioning and versatility, feel that unstoppable feeling with the Under ArmourHOVR Mega 2 Clone Running Shoes. With its relatively low weight, tough outsole, and smooth ride, it’s a standout choice for everyday training and walking, too—and you won’t have to spend a fortune to get a pair. The Expert: I have tested running and outdoor gear for years, both as an editor at Runner’s World and as a freelance reviewer for InsideHook, Men’s Journal, and other outlets. I’ve written more about running shoes than any other category, and I have firsthand experience running in models from a range of brands, including Under Armour. I first wrote this guide in 2018, and I’ve updated it regularly as Under Armour releases new shoes and running shoe tech. What to Consider When Shopping for Under Armour Running Shoes

When I grabbed the shoes out of the box, I noticed immediately how lightweight they were (at 8.3 ounces) and after trying them I could immediately tell the difference in the level of cushioning compared to the Infinites. They fit a bit more snug for me and my feet felt a lot closer to the ground. The upper felt breathable and the tongue felt cushiony against the top of my foot. Aesthetically, I also really enjoy the simple and sleek look the shoe provides. The underside of the Flow layer has an undulating pattern of grooves that reliably grip the road. And, in standard Under Armour fashion, it’s durable enough to withstand repeated impacts, so the shoe won’t wear down after a few miles, unlike most shoes with exposed midsoles. That means there’s no need for a separate, heavy outsole, which shaves off considerable weight. This shoe stands out among trail running models for its lightweight outsole. It’s built on a Vibram Litebase outsole, a new tread design used in trail racers like the Nike Ultrafly and Hoka Mafate Speed 4 to drop some of the weight added by traditional rubber trail outsoles. I’ve used MapMyRun a lot and have had the chance to test out some of the other features the app offers, which we’ll dive into during the ‘Wear Trial’ section of this post. Shoe Specs
