Under Armour is releasing a running experience like no other coming next week.  Until last year, I hadn't thought of Under Armour as a long distance running shoe brand but my thoughts have greatly changed since experiencing the HOVR technology for myself! Let me introduce you to the innovative Under Armour HOVR Sonic running shoe.  Designed for runners of the competitive mindset, the HOVR Sonic is a digitally connected, neutral running shoe featuring HOVR cushioning which offers a 60% energy return .
