Men's UNDER ARMOUR® CHARGE RC :: Be lighter, faster and more flexible in this quick, springy trainer. You'll love the light weight of the men's Under Armour® Charge RC that somehow manages to still include all the features you want in shoes for speed work, tempo training and racing. Stay fast on your feet: the Charge RC's innovative design focuses on eliminating the factors that can impede your run and slow you down, like heat, discomfort and fatigue, so you can be ahead of the pack, mile after mile. 9.2 ounces
With their first serious, technical running shoe, I would say Under Armour has made a stunning debut. The design of this shoe is packed with interesting features, and everything works well together.
I have only had 2 runs in them, but I like the low profile/minimal heel-to-toe drop, the fit, the road feel. The toe box is great, with a little stretch in the upper. The midsole is an amazing feel to it. Good traction in the outsole. Really impressed with this shoe. Can't wait to get more miles on it.
Great, great entry from UA
Have been waiting on RRS to send mine for a few weeks (was on backorder), and today just received them. First impression is that they look/feel more like a cross trainer, but are most certainly a running shoe. Took them out of the box, and intended on getting in about 3 miles over lunch...which ended up being about 6. A very smooth, fast ride with just a touch of sole stiffness and good rebound. The sole is a very dense foam and offers a little bit of cushion but the shoe is more intended for a proper neutral stride, and plays very well indeed. Fit is very much like classic Asics with snug heel/mid-foot and a looser feel in the toe box. I gap-lace my shoes and prefer a looser feel up front and this shoe does not disappoint. Heat Gear material provides excellent ventilation and stretch so as to not squeeze the forefoot. All-in-all the shoe fits securely but comfortably, and rides wonderfully. Can't wait to put more miles on these, do some sprint intervals (will do well for that), and some plyo as well. Fantastic all-around running/gym shoe and props to UA for this effort, hope to see more like it in the future.
Love this Shoe
I got the chance to test out the Charge RC early and I love this shoe. It provides a well supportive upper fit using UA's apparel and a performance ride under foot with the carbon fiber plate and minimal heal height. This shoe will be sure to turn some heads. Great New Shoe Under Armour!
I agree with the other positive rave reviews. Finally a lightweight, good fitting, responsive shoe. I have tried dozens of shoes over the last year and under armour scored with this one. It provides enough protection from the road and is responsive for quick running. It also works for treadmill running because the cushioning adapts to a moving belt whereas a squishy shoes becomes very unstable on such a surface. The fit is ideal (true to size) and the lacing system allows you to customize your fit. I have a narrow, but not excessively so, foot and have found that most companies have made their shoes wider and have stopped offering narrow versions. This is snug, but not tight, as a performance shoe should be. I run up to 90 miles a week, and need a shoe with either a touch of stability or firm cushioning and this shoe takes care of my needs. Just bought a third pair. Echoing the other sentiments, if this shoe is too narrow or does not provide enough cushioning or stability for you, look elswhere. Every shoe is not made for everybody.
Vastly exceeded my expectations!
I have three runs under my belt with the shoes. A 6, 12 & 20 miler. The shoe is a lightweight and has good support. Responds well on asphalt & dirt. Initially, I thought they looked good, but really didn't expect that much in a Under Armor running shoe. I have to admit, I've been pleasantly surprised and they have far exceeded my expectations. They're currently my favorite shoes (and I rotate 3 pairs of running shoes).
Nice entry by UA
Like the design, can feel springy effect, and faster than my past Nike's.
I found it runs true to size, I don't understand why to order one size bigger? They are narrow but it is purposely designed that way for the wrapping of the two independent sides. So if you have a wider foot, might not be for you.
