Looking to lighten the load for high-flying hoopers who put stress on their bodies, the Under Armour HOVR Havoc brings the brand’s trademark HOVR tech to the basketball court.
Releasing in both low and mid form, the responsive cushion debuted in the running category carries over to the hardwood for an energy returning ride set to lace Josh Jackson, Dennis Smith Jr. and more this fall as the NBA season gets underway.
While cushioning is at the core of the HOVR Havoc, fit is also of focus with special attention paid to lockdown, containment and stability. This is realized with the help of a two-layer knit upper and external heel counter for added support.
“We’re excited to bring our proven, tested and refined construction from running to basketball, featuring adaptations to tune the performance for players on court,” remarked Leon Gu, senior basketball and training footwear designer at Under Armour. “HOVR makes every step land softer and every push-off feel more explosive – offering energy return that combats gravity.”
