The UA HOVR Mega 2 Clone tries to innovate with an upper that’s meant to make this shoe a great fit for all runners, Unfortunately, that fit didn’t quite work for us and it might not for a lot of runners. It’s not the lightest shoe either, and while it offers plenty in the way of support and cushioning, it’s not the most versatile shoe if you want something that works for easy runs as well as picking up the pace. The onboard UA Record sensor adds some welcome tracking smarts, but ultimately you could pick up a more impressive daily trainer for less money.
The UA HOVR Mega 2 Clone marks the first time Under Armour has dropped its Clone upper onto a running shoe, aiming to offer a more supportive, adaptive fit for all types of runners. Except it didn’t feel like the perfect match on this neutral shoe option.
While that upper wraps closer to your feet than most, we found it quite tight in places, making it a less than comfortable running experience on all of our runs.
