One of my absolute favorite shoes!! Comfortable, great cushion and support. Despite the flaws below, great shoe and will definitely get another pair.
-The only flaw is getting them on! There absolutely needs to be a pull tab on the back of the shoe, just like the one on the front. With that said, the pull tabs need to be stronger/solid. After about 10+ wears, my pull tab started to fray, not good. I was able to use a lighter and melt the material to stop the fray. Fixed, but shouldn't have to do this.
Shoes have a great look overall and definitely standout. On the new cushing technology is very hard to feel its responsiveness. Would also recommend Under Armour to due away with the poke-a-dotted shoelaces. I would give the shoe overall a rating of 8 out of 10.
I love the UA brand and its apparel. But, I’m very disappointed with the size and availability of your shoes.
I wear a size 16 and I’ve ordered two pairs of the HOVR. The shoe is stylish and comfortable. But, you should make larger sizes more available (I wear a size 16. But, would need a 17 in your running shoe). I did wear them a few times. Then, ultimately gave them to another person who was one size smaller (size 15). And, they worked perfect for him!
Please consider making larger sizes and having them more available instead of overstocking colleges and universities with them.
It would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance for your time and consideration:
Please continue to make this version of this model. The ankle collar on the SE version is too firm and causes a lot of discomfort. I know several people have said the said the same about the traditional version, but that's from people who don't wear socks. The original version is perfect. Don't phase it out. Plantar fasciitis disappears with this shoe.
This is my first pair and they run a little smaller than I expected however still comfortable. I wanted the shoe to accurately track my workouts, running, walking, on treadmill and outside. The technology is great!!! Works great with my iPhone whether I have it with me or not, the sync process is great, I love the shoe, i purchased the Red Phantoms and now I want a pair Black, will purchase again soon!!!
I had high hopes for this running shoe. Since the Gemini was retired I was looking for a UA replacement. Well this is NOT it!
Shoe looks great and the reviews talked about comfort and that they run small. So I was warned!
First, I have to say this...UA WHY ARE THE BEST COLORS IN NEN SIZES? Please stop that. Women like colors other than pink! We like reds, royal blues and bright neon yellows. Please make those colors in Women’s sizes. I’m tired of buying Men’s UA shoes.
Second, the design of this shoe is horrible.The opening on this shoe is a nightmare! It’s difficult to put on no matter what size shoe you have. Also, when running it cuts off circulation. The laces have to be double tied. They come apart when running. On the treadmill, this is extremely dangerous.
Also, I have a really short foot, typically wear a size 7.5 men’s and 9 women’s. In this shoe I’m an 8 but, the fit is till off. I have wide feet but as you size up the wide widens and the length change is minimum. Weird!
After reviewing all the posted reviews on The UA website I was excited about getting my own pair. There were several reviews stating that you should order a 1/2 size to full size bigger then your normal shoe size as these shoes run small. UA states in the FAQ that there shoes run true and to order what your shoe size is. That is what I did. Unfortunately they were too small. After a 7 mile run my toes were killing me. I had to take the shoes off and walk the rest of my way home. I returned the shoes via the return policy. I must say that the refund was issued a lot faster then what was posted on their site. I reordered a 1/2 size up from a 9 1/2 to 10. Once I put my foot in the shoe I was amazed! It felt great. A little tight, I am hoping that I just need to break them in. So as long as you get the right size, the shoe lives up to what is expected. I love that the shoe “Hugs” my ankles ensuring a secure fit. When running about 20 miles a week I find that my phone or Apple Watch might not have enough battery life to last. Now I don’t even take either of them with me. I just put the shoes on, run, then sync them to my phone when I get home. I will definitely be ording another pair when these ones wear out. I will go a full size bigger the next order to give my toes a little more wiggle room.
I am flat footed, so I've been searching for a cushioned type sneaker. So my daughter suggested I give these a try. I'm happy to say the Phantom Connected is a very comfortable shoe. I walk more than jog for at least 3 miles on the tar lined streets in my neighborhood since my knees have become quite sensitive and worn from past constant jogging on hard surfaces. While wearing these shoes they protected my very well by absorbing the shock from the hard pavement and feeling very lite at the same time. I've tried the other best selling brands and I have to say these shoes are up there with the best! They do run a little small IMO so I would recommend going up a half size. I wear a size 12 but ordered a 12.5, which fits perfect. I like the styling and can wear these as a daily casual shoe!
I've been wearing the Sonic for about a year, my favorite UA shoe by far. I held off on the Phantom over concern about the ankle liner rubbing my skin because I wear no show socks. I'm a sucker for red shoes so when the colorway was re-released, I decided to try and hope for the best. The ankle liner just covers my tab socks and did rub my skin red front and back on a 2 mile run. Otherwise, the shoe is as comfortable and good looking as advertised. I did read a professional review that noted after sizing up 1/2 size, his ankle issue went away. However, I ordered my regular UA shoe size and the shoe fits well. If you wear a thin sock, I would describe this shoe as true to size. If you wear a cushioned sock, i'd go up 1/2 size for sure. I can see why so many people say order up but I think this is all about what kind of sock you're wearing. Long story short, I plan to keep them but i'm sticking with the Sonic on run days.
This is my 2nd pair of these !!!! I have the all charcoal color and when I saw the all red I KNEW I had to have them!!!!! I wear a women’s size 10 or a men’s size 8.5..... I have to order up a half size in these (men’s 9) to fit as they are cut very small. But they make my feet look small and cute!!! I could have probably went to a 9.5 men’s but I like my shoes to be snug at first and after wearing a few times they are good to go! 1 CON about these is they have NO traction on wet surfaces!!! It’s so strange but you will slip if you are not extremely careful on anything that is wet .. other then that.... these r my all time fav workout shoes at the gym... I do body pump and boot camp classes and lift and these are amazing. Then I go straight to my cardio with these n I never miss a beat! Please make a ALL HOT PINK COLOR in these UA!
This is the most comfortable running shoe I've ever owned. As a former marathoner who decided to go back to jogging after 40 years, I'm amazed at the advances in running shoes since I ran Boston in 1981! The only thing I would change about the shoe is to put another loop on the back of the shoe to make putting the shoe on easier. I would also use a more pliable shoe lace, since I've had to double knot the shoe to prevent the shoe from untying during a run.
One month ago I bought HOVR Phantom Connected shoes from you and I'm not happy with them. first of all the connected service does not work properly, it takes too many miles, second shoes are very slippery on wet roads, thirdly when running on longer distances, a lot of energy is felt and I feel strong spine pain, for the fourth week I used to run in these shoes Nyc Marathon end I had strong painful fingers in the foot after 3 days 2 nails have turned black despite the size of the shoes is good. these walking shoes are very comfortable while running do not fit in. This is my opinion.
The Good: materials are quality cushion is good fairly light weight overall well engineered The Bad: feel and performance is clunky The Ugly: sock is a bit over pronounced and chafes achilles tendon and ankle Verdict: I would return the shoes if I could
I had knee issues over the past few years and running was no longer fun. These shoes really helped to take stress off of my knees and they got ALOT better in a month. With improved knees I could run again and lost weight which made my knees almost pain free. Thank you UA!
I purchased this shoe for my 12 year old son. He says they are very comfortable and light. The shoe ran small so we had to go up a 1/2 size. I have also noticed they are a little challenging for him to put on due to the sock like fit.
My shoes have worked out well for me. They fit well, very comfortable and perform well. I wear these shoes 6 days a week for my workouts. I run 3-5 miles, and work with weights on my workout days. The shoes have out performed any other shoe I've owned.
I purchased these a month or so ago. This is my first Under Armour sneaker purchase. I have several different boots from Under Armour that I love! These sneakers were no different. The fit and comfort is great. They are super lightweight which was an added bonus. The material feels good and it makes them breathable. I would definitely purchase these again!
These are the absolute best running shoes i have worn in my life. Its really feels like you're walking on clouds, honestly. Please Under Armour give me more color options, i would use these as a casual sneaker given the chance. A small tip i would give is to wear above ankle socks, the top part of the sneaker rubs on the skin and irritates it. But this is a minor grievance compared to how awesome these sneakers are. Also the fact that it logs my workouts or just how many steps i took is pretty cool. I tend to open the app just to see how much i walked, that's awesome.
Super comfy size is normal the only complaint i have is with the UARun app and the elastic texture at the top of the shoe. The app would crash and not record my runs so I just stopped using it, should have just gotten the regular version of the shoes since I don't use that feature. And the top of the shoe rubs the skin so you cant wear low-cut socks, other than that loved them.
Great Design, Comfortable Fit, and Syncs with Mobile Apps
The HOVR Phantom has a smart design that is made with a wax-based foam for better energy flow, softness, and adaptability.
The knitted collar around the ankle and the knit forefoot make the it feel like a comfortable sock which works well for me once I got use to the ankle collar. At first it just irrated my ankles. It took me a few runs to get used to this style, but the shoe is very supportive and comfortable to run with, both during indoor and outdoor workouts.
The best feature is the Mobile App Sync. The MapMyRun or MapMyWalk Apps will display a map of your route in addition to all of your stats. MapMyRun uses your smartphone's GPS to track your location, so you'll only get a route map when using the app in tandem with the HOVR shoes. Since the shoes themselves do not have an embedded GPS, they cannot track location on untethered runs.
Otherwise, the shoes collect accurate running data no matter if you're indoors or outdoors.
The shoe fits as expected. Great support, lightweight. Great show for jogging, running, working out. I work out 3 to 5 times per week and I have trouble finding a good shoe that is lightweight yet supports during a pounding work out. This shoe met my expectations - it performs well and I would recommend it.
The shoe is really comfortable for running purposes. It has a fitted type of fill. The opening is a bit awkward to put the shoe on. It has a compression sleeve around the ankle which can be annoying depending on the type of sock you wear. I generally wear low cut sock so it doesn’t bother me. Overall, a great shoe and fits the purpose I bought it for!
Love my Hovr, I actually have 3 pairs in different colors and they all are great fits, super comforatble, and lightweight. Whether I’m using them to weight train or run these are versatile shoes. I like the connected especially because linked with the App it’ll tell me my stride length, cadence, splits, pace, etc. All great information to help me train and run better and more efficiently
I have this shoe in black, a half size larger than I usually take, and can't speak highly enough about how comfortable it is. I have the HOVR Phantom, HOVR Sonic, and the just-released HOVR CG Reactor. All are comfortable and well worth the price, but the Phantom is my favorite due to the more plush cushioning. If you're thinking about purchasing this sneaker and don't pull the trigger, you do so at your own detriment: you won't find a more comfortable, supportive, breathable piece of footwear.
Shoes comfortable and fit perfect but ankle cuff is like having a tight rubber band at the top of the shoe.Your designers were asleep when they put together this shoe entrance.The sales of this shoe would be triple with a different ankle design or a well made tongue.
Shoes run small, ordered sixe 12 same as my Brooks. Did not like the collar, hard to put shoes on. Lacked good arch support. Shoes did not give a good feeling of being stable. Over all very let down for the price and had trouble getting shoes to connect to the UA app. Only positive is the shoes were light.
These shoes are fantastic! I have been running for over 15 years and I have ran all types of distances from 5ks to full marathons. These are the best shoes that I have ever purchased. The toe box in the shoes is great. The design of the shoe's toe box is such that the constant pounding from running longer distances your toes have enough room to "expand." The sole rolls great with your stride and the cushioning is great. I have not had a problem with the app syncing with my shoes, and the feedback it provides is insightful and allows you to make small adjustments for large gains while running. The only slightly negative thing that can be said about these shoes is the break in period is a little weird with them. The overall fit is great and I love the way the shoes hug my feet. These shoes are great and I highly recommend them for anyone needing new running shoes.
Much like the Gemini 2s, the HOVR Phantoms have that kind of feel that "Wows" you as soon as you try them on. They look great, feel fantastic and have a level of support that isn't matched any other UA shoe. I was on the fence about them when they launched, but I absolutely love them now!
being 6'4 320, i can say these have been the most comfortable shoes ive worn in a very long time , ive already purchased 3 pairs of size 15 (white , gray, and black ) one for training and lifting , other for just everyday walking and comfort .... I'm very satisfied with these HOVR PHANTHOMS !!!!!!
I should have bought these shoes a long time ago but couldn't because they were always out of stock. Finally got a pair and I couldn't be happier with them. My job requires me to be on my feet all day and these shoes are very comfortable to wear on those 8 hour shifts. Even standing around they feel good on my feet. The sock fit is nice, some people don't really care for it but it's something to get use to. I know people don't want to spend a lot of money on shoes but I would recommend these shoes to anyone who works long days on their feet.
Honestly, the best shoes I've ever purchased. I mostly use them for casual purposes as they just look so nice and it's like your walking on clouds.. I've done a few runs with them with 0 break in required and again, my feet feel amazing. Everyone keeps asking me about them, tons of compliments and I point them to right here. Underarmour, your UA Hovr shoes are simply put 20/10. To all potential buyers, don't even second guess it, give it a try and I know you'll love them as I do. My shoes size is 9 and a 9 fits perfectly, I didn't need to get a half size larger as was recommended.
not for training but for running, jogging and walking
as the title suggest I will point out the obvious: 1) You cannot do Olympic lifts with these shoes (there is way too much cushioning for that). 2) You can do isolation movement wearing these (i.e. gym movements like bi curls, tri extensions, bench press, etc) again tying with top no Oly lifts. 3) Great for walking, jogging and running on concrete and grass. My feet did not go outward or inward. If you do feel that try with a non cushioned shoes that are relatively flat (NB Trail and No Bull Trainers are my choice for more flat feet shoes). I hope it helps those trying to make a decision on buying a pair. When in doubt always try a pair at retail outlet.
The most painful shoe I have ever worn. I am a personal fitness trainer, and thus far have absolutely loved every pair of UA shoes I have owned...until these. By the time I got to my office on the first day wearing them my left foot was hurting so bad that I had to take them off. So I was a bit embarrassed when I had to work with my first two clients bare footed.
I thought at first that maybe the size was too small, but upon inspection they were the perfect fit. They cause my feet to roll outward when I walk, so I would never be able to train in them. I thought that maybe they just needed to be broken in, so the next day (which I had no clients scheduled) I forced myself to wear them. The pain never went away.
I am an absolute UA fan, and have purchased so many great sports clothing items and shoes from this brand. I am not going to leave this brand over this one bad experience. But I’ve got to say...I would buy a pair of these Phantoms, even for my mother-in-law!
