Under Armour unveils HOVR Drive GTX shoe

9.49am 3rd February 2020 - New Products

Under Armour’s new HOVR GTX shoe boasts a proprietary cushioning technology that provides comfort and support without compromising on the shoe’s lightweight build.

HOVR cushioning captures the energy from a golfer’s forefoot rotation and returns it, resulting in the golfer having to spend less energy out on the course.

Traction is provided via RST 2.0 resistance spikes, which work in vertical and horizontal directions to enable golfers to keep their feet planted while leveraging the ground for full rotation of their foot to power through their swing for maximum control.

“We wanted to design a shoe that would exceed every golfer’s need, said Michael Glancy, UA’s Design Manager for Golf Footwear.“The HOVR Drive GTX does more than check boxes, it offers golfers the power they need to raise their game to the next level, paired with the comfort they want to enjoy the game.”
