Under Armour HOVR Havoc Low Review

Pros:
Amazing traction that works outdoors too!
Very stable and low-to-the-ground
Cons:
Cushioning starts off very stiff

Performance of the Under Armour HOVR Havoc Low:

The HOVR Havoc Low is the first basketball shoe that comes with Under Armour's new HOVR cushioning technology. The HOVR foam in the outsole is heavily caged and starts off very firm but gets more comfortable after the (considerable) break-in time. The outsole is made from a hard and durable rubber and sports a traditional herringbone traction pattern that impresses on all surfaces. Materials are standard Mesh and synthetics that provide a ton of support and lockdown. Overall, the Under Armour HOVR Havoc Low is a great performer for quick guards looking for an affordable low-top with excellent traction, great support, and solid cushioning.

The HOVR cushioning was a bit disappointing, but other than that, the Under Armour HOVR Havoc is an amazing performer with awesome traction and a very minimal, low-to-the-ground feel.

The HOVR cushioning is insanely caged and super hard. Great court feel and responsiveness, decent impact protection but not very bouncy.

The HOVR cushioning is caged to provide more response and to feel more stable than the HOVR cushioning we know from running shoes.

The HOVR cushioning started off really stiff but after breaking it in the cushioning in the heel started to feel amazing.

The cushioning is very firm out the box and takes a lot of break-in because it’s sandwiched too much.

The upper is made from rather cheap fuse and mesh, but the HOVR Havoc Low uses it smartly to create a supremely comfy sneaker.

The upper is made completely from mesh with some TPU overlays in the toebox and the laterals side of the forefoot. Usually, this would feel cheap, but in this case, the upper requires almost no break-in period and performs great!

Forefoot to midfoot fit great out of the box but the heel gave me some serious slip due to the stiffness of the outsole and placement of the top eyelets.
