Nice Shoes

Shoes fit slightly smaller than my usual UA shoes so need to go half size up. UA MapMyRun App connecting with the shoes are great! Helped assist my run thru the coaching which I can explore different running ways.Been using Speedform till HOVR,UA definitely makes the best running shoes.


I've been using Sonic 3 for about 185 km today, with some training form 5K, most 10K and one time HM. I'm not used it for tempo or interval training. I'm used nike pegasus and adidas ultraboost before this Hovr Sonic 3, so I can't compared with other than that. Sonic 3 weight is between pegasus and ultraboost, so I don't have problem with the weight because I knew that ultraboost is heavier shoes that sonic 3. About size I choose 1 size up from my both shoes before like some reviewer suggestion, and it's perfect choice. Sonic 3 has good upper material and quite breathable, I really love it like new primeknit from ultraboost. I have a little problem with the midsole, for person who are using ultraboost and pegasus before, it's quite less react and boost. The midsole on the heels are less supported too if you feet is normal to overpronation. Sonic 3 has good outsole (even continental is still the best) but it would make some noise on pavement or road on first 50 km run. My friend says it annoying sound on first time run. Hovr bluetooth technology is great, but I wish more upgrade in the future. they has fast connecting, even for the first time with my android phone and watch app. It give you information about stride, cadence, avg foot strike and avg ground contact time more accurate, like using garmin pods. Overall I love this shoes, but in my oppinion only recommended for running till HM. I wish UA more improving running shoes with better quality and minimalize style.

Running Wood

Love the color and the the fit. I have now ten pairs of the Hova

Solid Performing Shoe!

The Sonic line has always been a great performing shoe! What I was excited to see was the new color ways starting with the X Ray color! It was definitely worth the 2.5 weeks to get this shoe in the mail. I took them for a spin right away! The first thing is the Hover Technology is unmatched in comfort and performance. I am recovering from two knee surgery's and I must say the technology in this shoe allows me to train and rehab pain free and look good doing it. The fabric of shoe allows for stability and breathability. The soles and the Bluetooth coaching is serious business! I definitely recommend this shoe!

What is meaning of W8L8?

It good for Medium Run / I ran tempo (5.3 min/km) felling is good

Too Small to Wear

I have worn Under Armour running shoes for the past 5ish years and always wore a size 14. These were the first HOVR style shoes though and were much smaller than other UA 14s. I returned them and actually decided to get a different shoe. The Halo Gray color is actually just a fancy word for white, and they looked more like a woman’s shoe in person. I gave it 3 stars because it felt comfortable when walking (minus my toes nearly popping through) and the Bluetooth MapMyRun technology is awesome.

Great UA running shoe

This shoe is very comfortable. Fits true to size. The yellow lime color really pops. The shoe laces have almost a female sparkle on them. Other than that i would recommend getting this shoe if you’re looking for a good running shoe.

Hovr Sonic 3

I can’t wear them, they’re too big.. I need to send them back

Sonic 3 W8LS

Similar but with more HOVR foam platform with still breathable, but more substantial upper as the Sonic 1's. Still early, but so far, they're slightly better than the originals. Highly recommend for flat feet.
