Under Armour HOVR Havoc 3 Review

Pros:
Consistent traction on all courts
Great support and fit
Cons:
Materials aren't very premium
Lacks impact protection

Performance of the Under Armour HOVR Havoc 3:

The Under Armour Hovr Havoc 3 uses a traction pattern that looks like a modern take on the classic herringbone pattern. It works well on clean courts but needs some wiping on dirty courts. The cushion setup is very responsive and offers a good court feel, but doesn't protect your feet from hard landings very well. It works best for quick guards who are light on their feet. The materials aren't the most premium, but performance-wise they definitely get the job done. The half bootie upper construction fits true to size and all reviewers thought that it offered a very comfortable 1 to 1 fit. Another strong point is the support of this shoe. The wide base provides lateral stability for hard cuts and the lacing system keeps your feet locked down and prevents any slipping on the footbed. Overall, the Under Armour HOVR Havoc 3 is a great performer in the budget category - especially for guards who value court feel and responsiveness over impact protection.

The Under Armour HOVR Havoc 3 retails for $110 and I think you're getting a pretty solid performer for the price. I wish they had a little nicer materials and more impact protection, but everything else on the shoe was fine.

The modified herringbone traction pattern stops on a dime on clean courts. On dusty courts, it was still nice, but I had to wipe consistently to maintain a good grip.

I only got to test these outdoors, and the performance there was really good. On my wood floors inside they had a good bite too. They might pick up some dust because of the traction pattern.

This HOVR cushion setup performs similarly to other models using this tech. It is very responsive with nice court feel, but the impact protection isn't the most forgiving. Definitely catered more towards guards.

The cushion was pretty good initially, but once I started playing hard my feet began to hurt. The court feel is really good, but the impact protection is lacking.

The textile mesh upper is very thin and covered in fuse which doesn't feel great to the touch, but worked just fine. Although these materials weren't the most premium, the performance was fine.

Under Armour used a mesh material that is fused up pretty well and I liked it. It is supportive yet thin enough to conform to my foot. Quality-wise the materials aren't the best, but on-foot they are very, very nice.

The internal heel counter and sculpting kept my heel locked in. I had no side to side movement on the footbed and felt very stable thanks to the wide base.

I had no issues with lateral containment and my heel felt locked in. The materials don't stretch, so they held my foot in place very well. The low, wide base made for great lateral stability too.

These fit me perfectly. They are pretty snug in the toe box, which is just the way I like it. I also really like the heel tab which makes these pretty easy to put on.

A little narrow and I'd suggest going up half a size if you have pretty wide feet and don't want pressure on the sides of your feet.
