Summary of 6 Expert Reviews:

The outstanding feature of the Anatomix Spawn Low is the soft and pliable traction pattern that bites the floor like crazy - even on dusty courts. Another strong feature is the Micro-G cushioning that gives players a nice balance of impact protection and responsiveness. Less praise is given to the materials which don't feel great in-hand but still get the job done and the fit which gave some reviewers problems in the forefoot. Overall, the Under Armour Anatomix Spawn performs well in all categories and stands out with one of the best tractions in recent memory.

The Sole Brothers
This is a solid, solid performer, especially at the price of $110. The traction is excellent, the cushioning is soft, and the materials are pretty nice and comfortable.

The traction on this shoe is absolutely awesome and the Micro G cushioning feels really good. Unfortunately, the fit wasn't perfect for my feet.

For $110 you really can't go wrong with the Anatomix Spawn Low. It doesn't have the big-name brand attached, and the looks might not be amazing, but the performance is top notch!

If you are looking for a low, fast, cushioned ride that will draw some attention for the looks and colors, the Anatomix Spawn is it.

Schwollo
Even though this shoe has very little in common with its predecessors, it performs very well all around with excellent traction and a pretty good fit if you ignore the bubbles in the forefoot. I prefer these over the Curry 6 when it comes to performance.

This is my favorite Under Armour shoe so far! I love the fit, the Micro G cushioning, and the excellent traction.

Everything about the traction pattern is A1. Requires very little wiping, even on dusty courts.

Cushion of the Under Armour Anatomix Spawn Low:

The Micro G feels a lot firmer than we are used too from the Clutchfit Drive or the original Spawn. I like the balance between impact protection, court feel, and response.

I kinda like the firmer Micro G. It's still soft, but not mushy and gives you a great balance between impact protection and court feel.

Impact protection is outstanding and court feel is really nice and quick.

Schwollo
This version of Micro G slightly firmer than stock Micro G and a good blend of court feel, impact protection, and bounce.

PureKicks
The MicroG cushioning provides a lot of court feel in the forefoot and impact protection in the heel. It also doesn't bottom out which makes it very durable.

Not the most premium feel in-hand, but the materials work well on-foot.

Schwollo
I don't care about materials but the materials of the original Under Armour Spawn look and feel far more premium. However, this version of the Spawn is far more plush and layered.

Midfoot shank. Wide base. Wide lacing. Lateral wing tied into the lacing system. NO OUTRIGGER, but no problem.

The fit isn't bad, but it's confusing. The toe-box and midfoot are a little too wide for my feet but the heel is narrow.

No movement side to side and almost zero heel slip out of the box.
