Under Armour HOVR Sonic 5 Storm Best Long Run Shoe


CATEGORY: Neutral cushioning MEN’S: 286 g (10.1 oz.) WOMEN’S: 255 g (9 oz.)

DROP: 8 mm



The Sonic is a mileage shoe, with a generous amount of HOVR cushioning and a very flexible forefoot for your easy recovery runs and long runs (though without the added height of a high-stack trainer, which would make it less stable). The Storm version has a windproof and waterproof, breathable upper that makes it an excellent choice for cold, blustery, wet fall and winter runs.

The shoe has a rigid TPU heel counter at the back, which contribute­s further to stability, and is well padded below the collar; there is lots of carbon rubber on the very durable outsole (which is the same as the regular version of the shoe) for traction in wet conditions.

Like all UA HOVR models, the shoe has a chip embedded in the sole that connects to the MapMyRun app for personaliz­ed, real-time form coaching.
