Under Armour Anatomix Spawn 2 Review

Pros:
Lightweight shoe
Affordable price
Cons:
Cushioning is very firm

Performance of the Under Armour Anatomix Spawn 2:

The UA Spawn 2 receives mixed reactions from critics. The traction worked well for one reviewer but overall it didn't live up to the great traction of last year's Spawn model. The cushioning is super firm and provides very little impact protection. This works well only for guards looking for super low-to-the-ground, responsive cushioning. The materials are comfortable but tend to stretch out after a while and become a little too roomy and less supportive. Overall, the UA Spawn 2 is an affordable guard shoe, but there are better performers out there, even at a retail price of only $100.

It's not my favorite hoops shoe, but it might work for guards with wider feet who are looking for a very responsive shoe.

I don't recommend the UA Spawn 2. Cushioning was really bad, traction wasn't good, and the fit didn't work for me at all. Even at $100, there are much better performers out there!

It was a very overall comfortable shoe but I experienced lots of slippage in the soles to the point where I just replaced them.

Traction is easily the best aspect of the Spawn 2 as stopping power is great on all types of surfaces.

The traction takes a little time to break-in to become good. Unfortunately, the grip is a little worse and the rubber picks up more dust compared to last year's version of the UA Spawn.

The Micro-G feels is lightweight, minimal, and feels very responsive with minimal lag time.

The full-length Micro-G cushioning feels super stiff with very little compression or bounce. Impact protection is not good at all.

The neoprene-like upper materials flex very well and move with the foot nicely.

The upper Mesh and neoprene upper materials are soft, thin, and conform nicely to your feet. I also like the plush tongue and comfortable ankle padding.

There was too much dead space in the forefoot and the materials are too stretchy to provide enough containment.

At first, the fit was pretty snug but the Mesh stretched out too much for my liking after playing in these shoes for a while.
