Under Armour Flow FUTR X Elite Review

Pros:
Stable foam midsole
Comfortable Intelliknit upper
Cons:
Stretchy forefoot materials
Non-optimal performance fit

Performance of the Under Armour Flow FUTR X Elite:

The Under Armour Flow FUTR X Elite is a newly innovative performance basketball shoe. Flow foam remains elite on clean courts. As always, wipe on dusty surfaces. The midsole setup features a bulkier iteration of Flow. It feels more stable and secure. It's better for responsiveness. Under Armour's Intelliknit upper is also comfortable, lightweight, and breathable. The midfoot shank and stiff heel counter ensure support and containment are not an issue during play. The fit is divisive. Players who enjoy more freedom and stretchiness in the forefoot and toe box will enjoy the fit, but players who prefer a snug fit will not. The Under Armour FUTR X Elite steps up with a more innovative upper, and the traction and cushioning are what you expect from Flow, but make sure you like the fit beforehand.

The midsole has a ton of impact protection. It feels softer than the Curry line, too. There's also plenty of court feel in the forefoot.

The dual-density Flow foam is bulky with plenty of compression. The midsole feels secure and stable, and the shank feels like a springboard.

The Flow foam in this setup feels exaggerated. It promotes stability, and it features plenty of court feel. It's not the most cushioned, though.

The upper is Intelliknit. It's reinforced for extra support, and it feels comfortable. It feels like a sock on my feet.

I expected the laces to dig into my feet but they didn't. The forefoot area needs breaking in, but the materials are incredibly breathable.
 More details
Under Armour uses its Intelliknit on the upper with an added layer reinforcing it. It feels comfortable around the foot, but the forefoot stretches.

Under Armour's Intelliknit upper is a fully woven material. It feels great, and they get the job done.
 More details

The Intelliknit fabric is soft, lightweight, and breathable. There's no break-in time and there are no weak points for containment. The loose forefoot weave reduces performance, though.

The heel counter is adequate, and the lateral guardrail keeps you contained on the footbed.

The shoe's base feels stable. These are some of the better shoes for forgiveness underfoot. I appreciate the stiff heel counter, too.
 More details
There's tons of torsional rigidity and solid lateral containment because of the midfoot shank. When combined with the heel counter, there's no lack of support.

My main complaint is the wider toe box causing your toes to splay resulting in reduced reaction time. The rest of the shoe is stable and secure, especially the midsole.
