Under Armour Flow FUTR X Review

Pros:
Has amazing traction
Midfoot strap that actually works
Cons:
Not much in terms of impact protection
Cheap feeling materials

Performance of the Under Armour Flow FUTR X:

Just like the Curry Flow 8, the traction of the Under Armour Flow FUTR X is amazing. It bites regardless of whether the court is clean or dusty, and the Flow outsole is more durable than it appears. The cushion leans towards the firm side of things, but it is low to the ground and provides excellent responsiveness. Materials felt cheap to the touch but perform decently enough considering the price. The fit is true to size and should be able to accommodate most foot shapes. This is due to the materials stretching out a bit over time. Under Armour managed to implement a midfoot strap that's able to contribute to more than just aesthetics. It improved the lateral containment of the shoe, helping to keep you properly supported. The Under Armour Flow FUTR X is a fantastic option at just $120. The traction is outstanding, the cushion provides a good court feel, and there weren't any issues with the support.

Recommended for lighter guards quick wing players. As usual, great traction from UA, Flow does its job again. The cushion in these was surprisingly soft, completely opposite to what i expected and saw in other basketball Flow sneakers. Lockdown and support was just incredible. The midfoot band was a stroke of pure genius.Comfort wise these were great, but not the most breathable. Padded uppers don’t let the most air through. performance, coupled with price make the futr X a great option indoors.

These are great! Should work for most players, maybe more geared towards guards.

Featuring the exact same pattern as the Curry 8, the traction on the Flow FUTR X is great. It's beastly whether the court is clean or dusty.

The full-length Flow cushion is thinner than the Curry 8, so it is more firm. Impact protection isn't great, but the court feel and responsiveness are solid.

It is a responsive cushion setup, so don't expect much bounce or impact protection.

The midfoot strap actually provides solid support because it hooks into the shoelaces.
