Under Armour Micro G Funk Now Available

words // Nick Engvall

Last year Under Armour jumped into the competive world of basketball sneakers with a handful of unique designs, led by the Brandon Jennings signature model, the Micro G Black Ice. Under Armour is ready to take on their second season in the new arena and it begins with the arrival of the Under Armour Micro G Funk.

The Micro G Funk uses the company’s Micro G cushioning system which runs the full length of the midsole, which seemed to do well in last year’s Under Armour Performance Reviews. Other elements that return from last year’s line include the forefoot strap that was seen on the Black Ice, as well as a combination of synthetic materials and ballistic mesh for a lightweight and supportive fitment. The ankle design of the Micro G Funk features perforations for breathability. A TPU heel counter also adds stability, while the TPU midfoot shank keeps things from getting twisted up in sharp cuts. Finalizing the 12.8 ounce design is a one-piece rubber outsole featuring a multi-directional tread pattern for superb traction.

  • Greg:

    They look pretty nice, but I don’t trust the grip it provides from the last models. =\

  • Nazr:

    Bought the shoes yesterday – fit was nice.

    Very disappointed that they went with a new insole/sockliner rather than the previous die cut set up from last year’s Micro G Blur and Fly. This new insole looks and feels spongy and although I’m sure that it is designed to eventually conform to your foot it does not have the same feel as their previous set up (which I loved).

    I agree with what Greg says about the grip – UA should move to herringbone and these and the rest of their basketball line would be insane to play in for quick agile players!
