With minimalist running shoes taking up priority on every sneaker manufacturers list, there continues to be countless choices becoming available. Considering that many of the designs are as popular for casual wear as they are performance, it makes perfect sense. With that said, the latest from Under Armour is the appropriately named Assert.
The Under Armour Assert running shoe utilizes an inner FootSleeve system which on the performance side, it provides a lockdown fit, but also improves comfort. Combined with UA’s ArmourBound and ArmourLastic technologies, the result is a comfortable running shoe that mimics the natural motion of the foot. The open mesh upper is designed with breathability in mind, making these a cool option for the hit summer days ahead.For added durability and impact absorption carbon rubber is used to cover abrasion areas of the outsole.
