The Under Armour UA Charge Basketball High-top Shoe looks a tad ridiculous, which means it will probably be a smashing success. I guess I am getting old, as I can't wrap my mind around today's crazy shoe designs. Reminds me of the back to the future shoe.
The UA Charge manages to offer the flexibility and feel of a low-top shoe while protecting the ankle with an articulating high-top. All of this shoe and only 13.8 ounces.
Two-piece upper works with your anatomy to articulate around the ankle for the ultimate locked down fit without losing flexibility
HeatGear materials are breathable and wick sweat to keep your foot cool, light, and dry in these men’s basketball shoes
Perforated synthetic overlays add support and stability where you need it
Strategically placed foam pods in heel and tongue adds comfort in key contact points
Low, light, full-length Micro G foam cushions as well as any traditional, bulkier foam, and also rebounds your heel-strike energy for a quick re-launch
Large midfoot TPU shank prevents foot from twisting and rolling from side to side
Molded Micro G sockliner provides a responsive, cushioned ride
Clear rubber outsole is cored out to be lighter without sacrificing durability
Traction pods are right where your foot needs them for sure-footed lateral and linear movement
