Durability
Durability

Durability

Customers have reported that, unfortunately, the Under Armour Micro G Pursuit running shoes sometimes have the tendency to suffer from premature wear and tear. It has been reported from a few customers that after only a couple weeks of wearing them the soles become unglued or the toe area ripped apart. On the contrary, however, other customers did not experience the same problems and were able to wear them for long periods of time with no issues. It seems that the problem lies only with the upper however, as the outsole was designed to mimic a car's tire and can take quite the beating and the foam in the midsole can take hundreds of miles of running.
Protection
Protection

Protection

Protection can be important when purchasing shoes, as you want to make sure that your feet are safe. The outsole of the Micro G Pursuit is made out of a full-length rubber that helps keep the bottoms of your feet safe. The rubber protects the soft foam of the midsole, and therefore your feet, from more abrasive materials, such as rocks. The upper also helps provide a little bit of protection by adding some cushioned foam to the collar and underside of the tongue which will help keep your feet snug and secure inside your shoe.
Responsiveness
Responsiveness

Responsiveness

The Under Armour Micro G Pursuit offers you a phenomenally responsive ride that customers absolutely love. The Micro G foam that makes up the majority of the midsole is a single unit of foam that helps to cushion your landings and help propel your toe offs. The cushioning allows your feet to sink when you land but then it will quickly bounce back to its original shape which will then help propel you into your next step. The high energy return that these shoes offer you, as a runner, means that you will use less energy with each step which you can then in turn use to help you run faster and longer. Customers love that they can feel the spring in their step when they are running in these shoes.
Support
Support

Support

The midsole of the Under Armour Micro G Pursuit provides great arch support that customers have come to appreciate. The Micro G foam and the EVA foam liner gives you a decent amount of cushioning under your feet. The foam is slightly raised in the right places to give you some additional arch support. Additionally, these shoes are designed to fit your feet snugly and securely so you do not have to worry about your feet slipping and sliding while inside the shoe, or your feet coming out of your shoes altogether.
Terrain
Terrain

Terrain

The Under Armour Micro G Pursuit shoes are made to be worn when running on flat and non-abrasive surfaces, as they are considered to be a road running shoe. It is recommended that you stick to such surfaces as treadmills, roads, and tracks (indoor or outdoor). The outsole design helps give your feet a little bit of extra protection if you happen to veer off the beaten path, but it is recommended that you stick to roads and other flatter surfaces.
Price
Price

Price

It is important to keep in mind when purchasing running shoes that it is an investment and you will usually spend a little bit more money up front. If you get a good and durable pair of shoes you should not have to worry about spending that kind of money again for a while. That being said, the MSRP (manufacturer's suggested retail price) of the Under Armour Micro G Pursuit rings up at only $70 which is on the low end of the spectrum when it comes to other similar shoes. Customers are drawn to the low price point of these sneakers, but keep in mind they have commented that they do not always last as long as they would have hoped.
Traction
Traction

Traction

The Under Armour Micro G Pursuit running shoes have amazing traction. The outsole is designed to mimic tires and as such, they can hold quite the grip. The pattern on the bottoms of these shoes has horizontal lugs that are elongated and traction dots which help to optimize the amount of traction you have available to you when you are on the run. Whether you are running on wet or dry surfaces you will not have to worry about your feet slipping out from underneath you while you are in the middle of a run.
Flexibility
Flexibility

Flexibility

The outsole design of these shoes is made to increase the amount of flexibility you have when you are running. When you are wearing a pair of shoes you are still going to want to have the freedom to move your feet as naturally as possible. The elongated lugs on the bottoms of the shoe help act as flex points which let you bend your feet and move more naturally. In addition to the outsole, the upper also allows you the ability to move freely. The soft mesh materials that make up the upper are very flexible and move with you when you are running.
Stability
Stability

Stability

The Under Armour Micro G Pursuit is not a stability shoe and they are primarily made for runners who are looking for a more natural pair of shoes. If you are one of the thousands of runners out there who have the tendency to overpronate or supinate while running then you may want to consider a different shoe as these will not do very much to help you. However, these are going to be perfect for you if you are looking for a pair of neutral sneakers.
Drop
Drop

Drop

The drop of a pair of shoes is simply the measurement of the incline from heel to toe. When it comes to running shoes the average drop is between 8mm and 12mm with most of them coming in at 10mm. The drop of the Under Armour Micro G Pursuit measures in at 8mm so it still falls within the average range but on the lower end of the spectrum. Customers have commented that they enjoy the lower than normal drop of these, although the drop is usually a personal preference for the runner.
