First Look: Under Armour Tribase Reign CrossF…Training Shoe!

New info just dropped on Under Armour’s first actual attempt at an “in-the-box” cross training shoe. They’ve had a decent effort before with the Charged Ultimate, but nothing has really hit the mark as something everyone would want to use on a daily basis. Hopefully these new shoes change all that – I think they look great and I especially like the 2mm offset!

Looks like they’re going with the traditional construction route rather than going with a drop-in midsole like the Charged Ultimate.

TriBase platform looks interesting, both visually and functionally. Hopefully it retains all the flexibility without losing too much in the way of stability.

I was a fan of the Micro-G midsole in the Project Rock 1’s so I’m glad to see them making an appearance here; it should feel a bit firmer combined to the rubber outsole.

Forefoot flexgrooves and a toe cap in conjunction with a ripstop fabric upper.

I’m very excited for these shoes and glad that Under Armour is finally taking the functional fitness shoe game seriously. I’ll have a pair in my hands very soon, so definitely expect a review!

They come out on the 26th of December! Mark your calendars because the drop will be hot!
