A good combination of durable cushioning with high levels of medial support for over pronators. The MAPMYRUN integration may swing it for some, but there's more to this shoe...

Our verdict

Under Armours answer to support and control, the HOVR Guardian delivers just that.

  • Positive
  • Good cushioning
  • Good stable control
  • Hard wearing
  • Negative
  • Heavy
  • A little clunky

First impressions

Whislt this is the second generation model it will still be relatively unknow to many.

It uses the brands HOVR cushioning, which we think works well in durable high-mileage shoes.

The medial post works and proves able to control even the more severe over-pronators.

Midsole

The brands UA HOVR foam is embedded into the midsole and proves durability and with the added medial post, able to control quite high levels of over pronation.

This shoe also includes an embedded sensor that connects to MAPMYRUN and tracks, analyzes, and stores detailed running metrics that informs you about ways to improve your performance. 

 

Upper

The upper provides a nice fit and is very comfortable, it's well padded and offers a feel plush. That said, some testers said it was a little too padded and almost over done

Sole

The soles works well with this level of cushioning and support. Decent levels of traction and has proved durable in our tests.

Conclusion

The Under Armour HOVR Guardian 2 is a reliable everyday running shoe with stability for overpronators.
