Summary of 6 Expert Reviews:

Pros:

Phenomenal traction
Well-balanced Micro G cushioning

CONS:

Unnecessary dead space in the toe box

Performance of the Under Armour Anatomix Spawn Low:

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.

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

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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 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.
