Under Armour Drive 4 Review

Pros:
Fair price
Amazing traction
Cons:
Cushioning is very firm
Heel cup lacks padding

Performance of the Under Armour Drive 4:

The strongest point of the Under Armour Drive 4 is clearly its traction. The thick and aggressive herringbone pattern works on every surface - even outdoors. The Micro-G cushioning in the heel is nice, but the forefoot feels pretty much dead. The materials are very low-key and some reviewers mentioned a slightly painful break-in period. Overall, this is a solid shoe that outperforms its budget pricing and will work for every style of player - especially if you have wide feet!

A budget model that performs like a top-tier model. Traction is amazing, the cushion is okay, materials are really nice and they fit me very well. I think this is one of the best-performing Under Armour shoes out right now!

Overall, the Drive 4 is a decent, serviceable shoe — nothing except traction really stands out, yet the shoe is good for players at all positions.
 More details
This shoe is for the every day, every position player and it is a solid performer. If you require more cushion like myself, then you may have to look elsewhere.

The Under Armour Drive 4 is a solid hoops shoe for a low-budget price. I like them more than the Steph Curry 3 Zero. They feel lighter, are more flexible and the traction is on point. The cushioning is not a strong point but is still fairly good.
 More details
The Drive 4 has some things going for it (traction) and then there are some things that need work (fit and materials). If you’re someone who plays low to the ground, prefers a stable ride and has a wide foot, these are going to be great for you.

The traction grips really, really well and is one of the strong points of these shoes.

The rubber compound could’ve been a little tackier but that didn’t keep these from working on virtually every floor condition you can think of.

The cushioning is super stiff and very responsive. Impact protection is solid, but not made for big and heavy guys.

The cushion setup wasn't mind-blowing but it sure as hell got the job done. A perfect combination of impact protection and responsiveness.

Micro G in the heel feels nice, but the cushioning in the forefoot feels dead.
 More details
For my game, I needed a little bit more protection.

The cushioning is pretty thin and not very responsive. I wouldn't recommend these for highflyers or bigger players.
 More details
Under Armour could’ve and should’ve used full-length MicroG, but instead it only used it in the heel.

Overall, not much new for the Drive 4, but all the material blend together for an interesting shoe.
 More details
The materials don’t exactly conform to your foot so it makes the fit semi-sloppy.

Materials are really nice and soft, only the ankle collar was a little too stiff and restrictive in the beginning.

The materials aren’t terrible but they aren’t amazing either.

The bootie-style upper and internal heel counter keep your feet locked down. Overall, the support is great and almost as good as the traction!

Support and lockdown are pretty solid, containment is good.

Drive 4 does a solid job keeping you on your feet thanks to its wide base and low to the ground cushioning.

Nothing that makes the shoe unplayable. There are just better options if fit is your number one priority.
 More details
The shoe fits decent, even for a wide-footer like myself, but I just didn’t feel as secure as I’d have liked — even when laced super tight.
 More details
There was a ton of dead space towards the front of the shoe and I just couldn’t get the materials to snap to the front of my foot the way I wanted them to.

Wide-footers listen up, you should seriously consider putting these on your radar because a wide fit like this doesn’t come around very often.
