Under Armour launches a new super-shoe!

Under Armour have launched their first all out super-shoe, the Flow Velociti Elite 2, with a bang!


Flow Velociti Elite 2

First we saw Jamie Riddle stamp his ticket to the Olympic Games in Paris with a dominant win at SA Triathlon Championships in Nelson Mandela Bay in the new shoe.




Days later the same super light, carbon plated, high stack height, rubber less outer racing shoe was seen leading the Two Oceans Ultra Marathon for a long stretch.


We had a chance to join the Under Armour squad, coached by the legend Andrew Booyens who coached record setting Gerda, for a warmup run the day before Oceans. The group included Jenet Mbhele who finished 4th overall and Khoarahlane Seutloali who bravely ran in front of a stacked field for a long part of the race.




This achievement by Khoarahlane and Jenet is a testament to their unwavering dedication and the relentless pursuit of greatness," remarked Brent Collinicos, General Manager of Under Armour South Africa.
Their journeys, from humble beginnings to gold medal finishes, inspire us all to push beyond our limits and strive for excellence. 

Tested by some of the world's fastest runners, these marathon shoes were built to hit race-winning speeds. A full-length, carbon plate adds propulsion, while rubberless UA Flow cushioning makes it light and grippy.

 

  • Best for: Long, mid-distance races, like marathons, with a light, fast, explosive feel

  • Warp 2.0 upper optimizes containment with lightweight lockdown & allows maximum breathability

  • TPE sockliner for enhanced resiliency & bounce on every footstrike

  • Flow technology eliminates the rubber outsole, creating a more lightweight & seamless ride on any surface

  • Outsole material is super-durable & increases ground traction

  • 360° reflectivity for added visibility in low-light runs: for runners who need a balance of flexibility and cushioning.

Its exciting times for the shoe industry with an innovative high quality sports brand manufacturing a racing shoe of this calibre to compete with the established running shoe brands.
