With Jordan Spieth back on top form and recently celebrating his first win for nearly four years at the Velaro Texas Open, what better time for his apparel sponsor Under Armour to announce the launch of their 2021 footwear range, headlined by the new HOVR Drive shoe which we first reviewed back in 2019.
The brand are continuing to push the importance of biomechanics in shaping the design and makeup of their shoes, and they continue to work with Jean-Jacques Rivet which has produced their now-signature traction system.
This began with Rotational Resistance Traction in 2016, expanded to include Horizontal and Vertical Traction systems in 2019 and now the new 2021 range benefits from both of these technologies in one market-leading solution for traction.
Under Armour's HOVR footwear in golf, is for the golfer that seeks every possible performance and comfort advantage on the course.
Delivering performance throughout our full range has been paramount to the development of the 2021 range. Every shoe for 2021 benefits from Under Armour's proprietary Rotational Resistance Traction alongside all the bio-mechanical insights we have developed to ensure golf footwear that truly performs.
David Stakel, Senior Director of Compete Footwear, Under Armour
The models in the new range are as follows:
Featuring an updated look for 2021 with a new Mod Grey colourway.
Featuring a full knit textile upper with a sock-like fit.
- UA HOVR Forge RC SL (£105)
Lends a stylistic nod to the brand's heritage, and the original Charge RC running shoe.
One of Under Armour's most popular models, now available in two additional colourways - Mod Grey and Academy.
Under Armour have also added two new models featuring the Charged Cushioning technology for 2021.
The spiked Charged Draw RST (£90) and spikeless Charged Draw Sport SL (£85) offer superior traction at an attractive pricepoint, along with impact absorption and excellent energy return via the proprietary cushioning material.
