Having a real knack for experimentation and style, Under Armour has revealed its latest set of multi-purpose footwear. The UA Phantom 2 IntelliKnit running shoes.


Soft, stretchy and breathable, the shoes are also contoured to move with your foot, to allow for maximum comfort wherever you go - be it when you head out for a run, or if you are simply chilling out at a cafe with friends.


While it may not be quite as water proof as the UA HOVR Phantom 2 Storm running shoes, it is still quick-drying and supposed to be grippier than earlier iterations of the Phantom series running shoes.

Wrapped in light, breathable UA IntelliKnit fabric, the innovative soft midsole HOVR™ foam has been kept intact from earlier editions of the shoe.


The combination of the new knit upper and the soft HOVR™ foam offers you the perfect fit, regardless of movement.


Similar to other shoes from Under Armour's HOVR cushioning family performance running range, the Phantom 2 IntelliKnit uses the same HOVR™ technology to maintain zero-gravity and eliminate impact for better energy return.


This means that runners can expect to feel less fatigued while running over extended periods of time.

A Better Fit Shoe Design


Shoe's Upper


Designed with a flat knit upper, the shoes provide zonal stretch and support where you need it, with a better anatomical fit and easier entry. The design of the Intelliknit is also a lot more stylish than earlier editions of the Phantom and Phantom 2, making it a suitable choice for casual wear.


The new design also offers much better comfort around the ankles, while having a stretchy upper and the fact that it is true to size means the shoes are also suitable for runners who have wider feet.

Intelliknit Vamp


UA INTELLIKNIT is basically a stretchy, soft material that maps to your foot for improved flex and breathability, the total opposite of the kind of shoes that pinch on your feet.


Also, according to some running shoe reviews, as the IntelliKnit is thicker in material, it can even be used for cooler and more temperate climates, while remaining lightweight, breathable, and warm without feeling heavy.


This makes it a great pair and natural choice for when you start travelling again.
