For those of us who have little-to-no background with training plan customization, the prospect of creating one can feel a little daunting. However, the Under Armour Women's Speedform Velociti City RE Shoe is designed to take stress out of the equation and do the customization for you—all you have to do is run.
The Velociti features a built-in chip that tracks real-time run data (time, cadence, duration, distance, and splits). Next, the chip syncs with UA's MapMyRun app. And as a result, offers you customized training plans and allows you to look back on your stats. A simple preliminary test called The Jump Score reportedly measures muscle fatigue and recovery rate, and suggests how intense your run should be. Additionally, it's important to note two things: the UA MapMyRun app is free for a year, and the built-in chip ensures that you're able to run with-or-without your phone. And, another important note, the built-in-chip doesn't require charging.
At its core, the Velociti stays in-line with Under Armour's fast-and-light performance line. A seamless design cuts down on hot spots or chafing while simultaneously offering passive ventilation and comfort. The sockliner wicks away moisture and doubles down on comfort, while the internal heel counter promotes cushioned comfort and safeguards your Achilles. Additionally, the Charged Cushioning midsole provides enhanced energy return through transitions, attenuates shock, and maintains a responsive feel underfoot, making the Velociti particularly well-suited for fartlek training and other speed-based training needs.
