Comments about Mens Under Armour Illusion Running Shoe:

Started running in 1978 and these may be the worst shoes I have ever tried. Have been running in Mizuno Inspire, but wanted a change. The UA's sent shock waves up my shins and vibrated my legs. Moved on to Puma.

Comments about Mens Under Armour Illusion Running Shoe:

Bought first pair last summer while in Iraq. Ran 25-30 miles a week. Weigh 170 pounds. Footsleeve really adds to comfort/stability. Held up extremely well in harsh conditions. Now on second pair. Still a NB and Ascis fan but these are my new favorites.

Comments about Mens Under Armour Illusion Running Shoe:

The attached tongue (footsleeve) did a great job holding my heal in place and preventing any slippage.
I am a 190 lbs 30mpw runner and have gotten 450 miles out of my pair of illusions. Nice debut shoe for Under Armour.

Comments about Mens Under Armour Illusion Running Shoe:

Good, solid shoe. I'm 260 pounds and I use these for working out and standing all day on concrete. The only drawback, and it's about the same with any sneaker, is that there's little ankle support.

By Jim

from Undisclosed

Comments about Mens Under Armour Illusion Running Shoe:

I bought the Illusion based on the UA name, which proved to be a poor decision, as I returned them after two runs. The foot bed was stable enough, but could have had a bit more cushion for my taste. The upper was breathable, but failed to provide the stability that I look for in a stability shoe and the sock liner was so short that the laces tied at the very top of it. I would look for UA to improve on their first effort.

from Undisclosed

Comments about Mens Under Armour Illusion Running Shoe:

Very breathable, fast feel in the forefoot, although still not that light. I feel like I'm landing more on my midfoot with this shoe, which is a good thing. Overall, I am pleased although I'm not sure about the overall durability, as I am already seeing some wear after 100 miles.

By PL

Comments about Mens Under Armour Illusion Running Shoe:

Feels like a very good shoe for me. Lightweight and supportive. The upper is very breathable and comfortable. Very flexible and has a really smooth heel to forefoot transition. The midfoot fit is great with the "footsleeve" and the sole feels very responsive. All around a very good 1st effort from Under Armour.

The WORST shoe I have ...

By Disgruntled

from Undisclosed

Comments about Mens Under Armour Illusion Running Shoe:

The WORST shoe I have ever worn after wearing Asics stability shoes for the past twenty years. I felt as if I was running on planks. They have little flexibility and cusioning. The upper is its only redeeming quality. I am going to return them and never get a silly notion that Under Armour ("we must protect this house!") would ever be able to produce anything other than a cross trainer for football players.
