We offer a wide variety of running shoes. Each shoe has its own characteristics. Then how to know what is the difference between various models? To help you out, 21RUN presents the Our Expert’s Opinion column. This column helps you get a better insight into the different characteristics of specific running shoe models and helps you find your perfect pair.
In the Our Expert’s Opinion column our running experts rate shoe models on a number of decisive elements. Do you already know which characteristics your new running shoes should have? Use Our Expert’s Opinion to check if the model you’re looking at meets your demands.
The degree of pronation indicates the extent to which a model provides support for overpronating runners. If the orange bar is on the far right, the model gives a high degree of correction. If the orange bar is on the far left, the model does not correct. Neutral runners don’t need a correction, overpronating runners often do need a certain degree of correction.
The level of support indicates to what extent the shoe supports your foot arch. The amount of support needed is closely connected to ones weight. If the orange bar is on the far left, the shoe provides little support, making the shoe more suitable for lighter runners. If the orange bar is on the far right, the shoe gives a lot of support; thereby making the shoe very suitable for heavier runners.
The level of cushioning indicates the extent to which a shoe absorbs shocks that occur during landing phase. If the orange bar is on the far left, the shoe provides little cushioning. When wearing running shoes that provide little cushioning, you experience a lot of ground contact and responsiveness. If the orange bar is on the far right, the shoe provides a lot of cushioning. When wearing shoes with a lot of cushioning you will experience a softer running feel, but less ground contact and less responsiveness.
The level of responsiveness indicates how energetic a running shoe feels. This often is also referred to as the degree of reactivity. If the orange bar is on the far left, the shoe is less responsive. If the orange bar is on the far right, the shoe is very responsive. When a shoe is responsive the energy of the landing phase is returned to you during take-off.
The Under Armour HOVR Sonic 4 Storm for men are all-round running shoes for neutral runners. The HOVR Sonic provides an excellent balance between flexibility and cushioning. Thanks to this ideal mix the Sonic is perfect for endurance runs at an average tempo. The lightweight Engineered Mesh upper provides excellent breathability, which helps to keep your feet cool and comfortable. The upper of these Storm editions of the shoe come with the UA Storm technology, which makes the shoes water-repellent without surrendering their breathability. The tongue features quite a bit of padding and thereby ensures a soft feel on the bridge of your feet and no pressure points from your laces. The removable insole provides extra comfort.
The TPU Heel Counter keeps the heel in place and gives a stable and supported feel during your runs. The Under Armour HOVR technology ensures a lot of energy return. It attenuates impact during landing and uses this energy to propel you forward during your take off. The HOVR foam provides a soft step in and effective cushioning. The Bluetooth transmitter in the shoes allows you to connect the shoes to your smartphone. To do this, use the MapMyRun app. This app gives you insight in your pace, step-count, stride-length and much more. The Blown Rubber material in the forefoot and the High Abrasion Rubber with an extra high density at the heel provide a highly durable outsole. The outsole ensures excellent grip on wet as well as dry roads.
