Most decent running sneaker today have some form of semi-reflective material hidden is subtle fashion on the heel or lateral side of the shoe, but few go full-reflective.
The latest version of Under Armour’s flagship running sneaker, the UA Charge RC, is back with a 360-degree reflective designed to keep runners visible and safe during low-light situations in these short winter days. The Metallic Silver upper is covered in a dotted reflective material, along with a reflective UA logo and a reflective horizontal strip between the upper and the midsole—not to brag or anything, but we did predict this as a one of the most exciting performance sneaker treands to watch for in 2013.
The Charge RC Reflective is imbedded with HeatGear fabric, which wicks away sweat to keep your feet nicely ventilated. The shoe still retains its full-length Micro G foam midsole with built-in carbon fiber spring plates, which transfer hell-strike energy forward. Thanks to a combination of padded MPZ and 4D Foam, other critical areas of the shoe (particularly the toe box, tongue, and collar), your feet can take a beating without you even breaking a sweat.
