Under Armour UA Flow Velociti Wind 2 Multi Tester Review

Article by Mike Postaski, Peter Stuart, Beto Hughes and Sam Winebaum

Under Armour UA Flow Velociti Wind 2 ($160)


Sam: The UA Flow Velociti Wind 2 is a moderately cushioned 26mm heel /18 mm forefoot stack stable neutral trainer with an outsole grade midsole and no rubber outsole. Its underfoot geometry was designed via force data and remains unchanged from v1. The upper features UA Wrap which Under Armour describes as “supporting tapes that act like seatbelts on the foot, placed precisely where our biomechanists found them to be most helpful for a runner. The tapes are in tension when you need them and relax when you don’t — eliminating any buckling and pinch points from traditional uppers built with continuous materials.”

The upper is not different in construction from v1’s (RTR Review) beyond a new (and we found effective) Tatami Stitch heel construction which secures the achilles and heel marvelously.

Tester Profiles

Mike Postaski Born and raised in New Jersey, recently moved to Boise, ID in 2019, mainly to have better and easier access to outdoor adventure.  I have no formal running training, have never run on a team at any level, and can count the times I've run on a track on one hand.  I actually grew up inline speed skating - both indoor short track as well as roads.  Picking up running in my early 30s , starting on roads, progressing to marathons (PR 2:40, Boise 2019), eventually I discovered trails. I love going fast and running all distances, but I especially love long mountain ultras.  My three 100 milers so far have all been in the 25k vert range. I also enjoy the challenge of looped/timed trail races, and even the backyard ultra format. I am definitely a gear junkie - I have gone through more running vests than I can remember, and my trail running shoe collection currently sits at 38 pairs (all tracked via spreadsheet)!  My wife does not appreciate this.

First Impressions and Fit

Peter: Cool looking shoe, sleek and colorful. Runs a bit short for me at my normal size. The folks at UA were kind enough to size me up half a size and now the fit is much better for me.. On the first run I like the underfoot feel, but am in danger of losing a toenail! I’m going to clip those nails and go out again. The step in is comfortable and I really like the upper design. It’s a terrific looking and fitting upper–especially in terms of foot hold–as long as you get the right size. 

Mike P: The shoe definitely looks interesting, and brings some new features to the table. The outer is overlaid with a grid of fabric strips and stitching.  The outsole - there’s no outsole.  It is a more durable midsole as outsole compound.  That design leads me to wonder if the midsole will feel too firm, or if it’s blended somehow to be softer underfoot and more durable on the “outsole” side? Turns out all the same foam density and firmness throughout. 

On foot, they’re noticeably snug up front, but other than that they feel pretty comfortable.  I always check for underfoot support, and I was happy that these seemed to be well contoured and supportive under the arch.  I’d say length-wise they’re true to size, or just a bit short.  I’ve got ¾ thumb’s width up front - which for me is about right for a road shoe.  I also find enough width across the forefoot - my foot doesn’t feel squeezed.  It’s the taper at the front plus the tight wrap across the top of the toes that makes them snug.

Ultimately, I’d recommend sizing up by ½.  For those with narrow feet who struggle to find a snug fit, these will likely work well at true to size.

Sam: First I will agree with Mike on sizing. While the midfoot has volume and the toe box has good width the UA Wrap tapes and quite low and pointy toe box make the fit high performance in nature and favoring lower volume feet. The Tatami Stitch heel counter is unique in its squared off super secure and totally locked down achilles and rear hold. Overall this is a minor update and the rear hold is clearly the key new feature. With such hold a “lighter” on the foot approach with a softer mono mesh base layer  nd fewer stitches between the UA Wrap tapes for the rest of the upper including the toe box might work well and reduce weight..

Styling is spectacular with the intricate combination of a base mono mesh overlaid with the intricate web of the UA Wrap tapes and stitching to hold them and all over the upper to create support. 

It is not often that we comment on the “outsole” as a key visual design element but here the intricate, and functiona,l data driven design of grooves, heel landing and metatarsal take off zones is striking and effective as this midsole as outsole design is incredibly quiet on the road, stable and smooth flowing. 

Beto: I agree with Sam and Mike about the sizing in that there is not much volume up front and the pointy toe box can feel snug.  If you have a wider foot go ½ a size up and if you have a narrow foot go true to size. 

The upper feels secure and snug thanks to the Warp upper giving a nice race feel. The shoe looks amazing, very fashion and sport forward which is perfect for both gym and running .  The heel counter is very well padded and secure. The midsole feel is comfortable and feels good on foot but  while running is a bit firm with a touch soft upfront and it is a very quiet shoe and I mean super quiet.  You can really feel how well  the midsole absorbs impact at the road. If you heel strike the midsole feels protective and a bit soft with more firm landing and a nice heel to toe transition.


Mike P: As mentioned earlier, I find the “UA Warp” upper quite snug and secure all around, with the toebox being a bit cramped.  Based on my testing, I do think the upper trends more towards performance than daily training - so where a bit of a tighter fit is more appropriate.  I do use my thinnest socks with these, as there’s no need for any additional volume or cushion.

Another upper feature highlighted by UA is the Tatami Stitch Heel.  Honestly, I have no idea what that is, but the heel cup is deep and secure.  There’s a bit thicker band of material that wraps around the achilles and above the heel.  This serves to lock the heel further back and it does work.  I have not noticed any heel slippage at all.

Sam: The upper features UA Wrap which Under Armour describes as “supporting tapes that act like seatbelts on the foot, placed precisely where our biomechanists found them to be most helpful for a runner. The tapes are in tension when you need them and relax when you don’t — eliminating any buckling and pinch points from traditional uppers built with continuous materials.”

The tapes are stitched to a mono mesh main upper with the stitching also extending to the gaps between tapes for structure and support. This is one heck of an open and breathable upper.

The Tatami Stitch heel area is notable for its incredible hold and comfort with a more squared off shape and feel across the achilles than normal. It is the star feature of the upper for me.

Peter: Those guys have the technical part covered, so I’ll say that (once I sized up) the upper looks and feels great. The “tapes” look good and serve to hold the foot really well–as does the heel cup. No foot slippage and a very secure fit in both my normal size and sized up. 

Beto: The Warp upper uses tapes and stitching to give structure and secure the foot in place with what it may look like a spider web with the underlying mono mesh what  keeps the upper in one piece and helps with breathability and support. The fit can feel snug at first but not so on the run, with this fit and shoe more intended for faster paces and gym workouts as well. 

As Sam said the lines act like seat belts keeping the foot secure when you need and relax when you don’t and gives comfort when running or changing the pace when you need. The heel counter is well padded and comfortable with great lockdown making the heel secure and stable. 

The tongue has enough padding to prevent pressure points and be comfortable on top of the foot. 

This a really nice looking upper being breathable and secure in a simple but very well designed way.  UA really has something special here. 

Also this colorway is reflective in that all the lines that wrap the foot are somewhat reflective which is a nice touch when you run at night, not the brightest but something is better than nothing.


Mike P: Responsive is the word I’d use to describe the “UA Flow” midsole.  It does lack the bounce or pop of some other competitors at its price point, but it does respond when you put it to the task.  My first run was a regular easy day, but perhaps I was a bit excited to test them - I found myself going a bit too fast and struggling a bit to hold them back.  It seemed like as long as I kept my form and proper forward lean, they were urging me forward. 

The next day I took them out for a real test - a 40 minute tempo.  Typically I do my tempos as well as long intervals in Saucony Endorphin Speeds.  The Endo’s feel fast, and I like the forefoot protection so my feet are not beat up after hard workouts.  One thing I noticed about the UA midsole was a similar level of forefoot protection, just a bit firmer.  I would say that the forefoot protection is more ample than the 18mm stack would suggest.

The firmness of the midsole feels even throughout, i.e. neither the heel nor the forefoot feels any softer or firmer.  That being said, I found downhill heel landings to be a bit harsh when running fast on the backside of a few bridges.  I’ll leave it to other reviewers to chime in on overall usage for heel striking in general.

Sam: Mike describes the midsole well. I was struck by the level of protection and cushion from the low 18mm forefoot.  The cushion feel and flow is consistent throughout the shoe, heel to toe at all paces, and almost to a fault it is dense, vibration absorbing and a bit dull lacking in either quick rebound or a snappy toe off feel.  The geometry is excellent with a smooth flow through the gait cycle but is somewhat held back by the foam or maybe the lack of any rubber. I found all paces fine in flow and protection here, even slow. 

The foam itself I think holds this shoe back. For sure on the heavy side as with a modest 26/18 stack height and no outsole rubber (the heaviest material in a run shoe) we tip the scales at a “reasonable” but on the heavier side about 8.55 oz / 242g US9 based on my US8.5 at 8.29 oz / 235g. 

The foam is also dense in feel reminiscent of Salomon’s Optivibe main midsole, a denser Nike React, or Scott’s midsole in the Speed Carbon RC. No coincidence as all three are based on different formulations of Dow Infuse, an EVA/Olefin copolymer block compound. Here clearly I think there is less of the Olefin which provides the energetic rebound or maybe some other material added for at the road durability with UA clearly leaning towards a denser, more stable, protective and durable ride in the low stack. 

Peter: I’m debbie downer here, but I have to agree with Sam. Dense and dull are the key words. As much as I like the upper of the Velociti Wind, I haven’t found any real joy in the midsole. It’s not punishing or wildly firm. It’s just sort of there. They are stable and protect the foot well, but there’s just not much excitement in the foam. 

Beto: The Flow midsole is responsive and shock absorbing in a very well balanced way making the midsole very protective from the ground and stable at any pace with the geometry making the shoe feel smooth from heel to toe. It  feels firm but the shoe is responsive at moderate paces even on easy runs if  you lean forward. 

The midsole is very well balanced absorbing the impact and being responsive at the same time. At faster paces or tempos the shoe feels stable up front and at landing there is no bounce because of how well the shoe absorbs the impact.  Instead, you feel a fast response after you land. It is not a snappy feel but a responsive one with a nice energy return from each step. On long runs the midsole feels nice taking care of the legs up to certain mileages for me with the legs starting to miss cushion after 14 miles. 

I enjoy firm shoes and this Flow midsole is a very well balanced between firm and protective. My  legs and feet don’t feel beat up after my runs and because of how stable it is and the firmness of the midsole it is a very good shoe to also go to the gym and for hill workouts and even Crossfit.


Mike P: Over 30 miles in, I have noticed very little scuffing to the midsole/outsole foam.  I’ve had plenty of shoes with rubber outsoles that show noticeable rubber wear at my lateral landing area after only a few runs.  So based on that, I would guess they would be durable, but not sure over the long, long term. 

We haven’t had precipitation for a long time here in Boise, but I did run through sections of wet pavement and concrete where snow has been melting.  Traction felt fine, no slippage at all.  It seems like the honeycomb-ish pattern of the underside of the foam does grab well. 

I think that not having a rubber outsole helps offset the firmness of the shoe.  The foam is on the firmish side, but without being restricted by an outsole, it is allowed to flex a bit so it doesn’t feel harsh.

Sam: Mike says it well and especially in his last paragraph. I would add that eliminating the outsole allowed UA to focus on the geometry underfoot with a data driven approach notable for the wide landing and prominent metatarsal pads as well as all the other grooves and carve outs I think contributing to the quiet ride and smooth flow.

While the upper may be a bit “for show” the underside, striking as it is, is not, as this is one smooth flowing, relatively flexible and super quiet on the road shoe which for sure gets there with its innovative underfoot geometry. 

Peter: The outsole is the midsole. Or is the midsole the outsole? It's all the same. Yup, it’s quiet and traction seems fine. I’m not seeing any premature wear. 

Beto: The outsole which is the midsole too is all exposed foam with a pattern that seems to nail the landing pods from the lateral heel to the front metatarsal pads to help with transition and especially traction. Normally the traction of exposed midsole/outsole is not good on wet roads and  tend to be slippery but the Velocity Wind 2 doesn’t have that issue on wet roads.

The traction is good but not the best if compared to real outsole rubber. I had no issues on wet roads the shoe felt stable and secure so I didn't worry about slipping on pavement which is something good for the type of exposed outsole. 

The outsole pattern is well designed and all the added detailing, which looks good in my opinion, also really helps the transition of each stride from heel to toe as the rear pad help me land and feel stable with a natural flow to the midfoot and then the toes also stable with then a nice roll sensation at toe off.

Durability is great, no major wear or basically not that visible on my normal wear points. 

If I compare it to the V1 as the midsole is basically the same, it should be be a durable shoe that will last a long time helping justify the $160 price point.


Mike P: The ride is stable and responsive, but as mentioned earlier - without any noticeable “bounce” or “pop”.  In fact, that is exactly the tradeoff you get with the Flow Velociti Wind in comparison to other shoes such as the Endo Speed or Rebel V2.  

Less bouncy in feel, and more firm underfoot, but you get stability in return.  This stability is enhanced when running fast by the tight-fitting and secure upper.  Performance-wise, they were not as fast on my tempo run as my typical Endo Speeds.  I felt like I really had to push my legs to do the work vs. relying on any type of bounce or forward roll.  Take that as you wish.  With all the “super” shoes on the market, it can be easy to overlook the fact that “training” should work you  to become stronger, and not just eke out a few extra seconds via shoe technology.

They seem to urge you forward via the 8mm drop geometry plus a nice connected feel with the ground provided by the midsole/outsole all in one.  Perhaps the best analogy is of a tight rubber band which is tensioned then relaxed through the footstrike.  I find the ride quite pleasing at faster paces, but you don’t quite get the absolute speed that you might get from other more dedicated speed/workout shoes.  At slower paces they feel a bit firm - you’d likely want a bit more cushion for slower/easier days.

Sam: The ride is highly consistent, stable, and smooth flowing. My test runs were in the 7 to 8 mile range at moderate paces of 9:30 to 10 minute miles with a few faster pickups. I would not call the ride exciting or energetic. It is more dependable, all of the piece and smooth no matter the pace. 

The dense midsole, despite the relatively low stack (especially at the forefoot),  was surprisingly protective and well cushioned, clearly making the Velociti 2 a solid all around daily training ride.  The sensation of flowing quietly and smoothly, almost moccasin like, along the road is pleasant and different. No slapping, no struggling in transitions regardless of pace, minimal shock but with a muted but present feel for the road.  Add some more energy rebound and lightness to the foam such as Salomon has in their newest and same supplier Energy Surge foam and the ride would be improved. 

I guess this is part of the ride or maybe the midsole but the Flow Velociti, as do all UA performance running shoes, also includes a Bluetooth sensor in one shoe.  

It  records no watch or app connected on the run required although it is an option, data including cadence, distance, pace, stride length, ground contact time, and foot strike angle. The data looks solid but I do note a Suunto 5 Peak and a Coros Vertix 2 worn concurrently recorded 7.65 miles vs. 8.18 miles for the sensor. 

All of this can be seen after the run in UA’s Map My Run app (free), live on an Apple Watch, with form coaching on Garmin watches and with more features available in the MVP paid premium version.  

Peter: Yeah, what Sam said. Protective and well cushioned, but not particularly exciting. Rides like a daily trainer for me and not a tempo shoe. I’d love to see this upper sit on a more dynamic midsole. 

Beto: The ride here is where all the pieces come together. The combination of the upper and the midsole firmness give the shoe a nice responsive but firm ride with amazing shock absorption, a stable landing and a  nice propulsion at toe off. It lacks pop or bounce back but the geometry of the shoe works well when running from easy pace to moderate paces. 

One thing I noticed is that because of the low stack you have a nice low to the ground control and contact and because of how well the Flow midsole absorbs impact it helps to protect the foot from the ground without losing that low to the ground feel.

I can “flow” along  at 8:45 min/mile and then get to 7 min/mile with ease really enjoying the feel and responsiveness of the shoe. I enjoyed how secure the upper is , the response of the midsole and feeling stable all at the same time. You really feel and hear how quiet and how it absorbs impact while still having a nice responsiveness at each step. 

Conclusions and Recommendations

Mike P: I found the sweet spot of the Flow Velociti Wind 2 to be faster paced running, just slightly below workout-level paces.  For me that would be anywhere in the range of 7:30 - 6:00/mi.  Don’t get me wrong, they also work well outside of that range, but perhaps are not as ideal.  If I was running easier, I’d look for a bit more comfort, and at workout-level paces I’d go for something with a bit more pop.

It is a very nice shoe overall, but in terms of performance relative to price point - it is a cut below the Endo Speed, which also retails for $160.  I would feel better about the shoe if it was priced more in the range of the Rebel V2, which is a bargain at $130.  I think that would be a more palatable price point, especially since UA is not as an established running shoe brand as others.

Mike P’s score: (8.45/10)

Ride: 9.0 Fit: 8.0 Value: 7.0 Style: 10

Great, uptempo ride.  Fit is secure, but tight toe box may be an issue- especially if not sized correctly.  Could also be an asset for those with narrow feet.  Price seems a bit high relative to competition.  Great looking shoes.

Sam: But for the foam here and UA would have a homerun. While somewhat over elaborate and snug, the UA Wrap upper is superb in its hold and connection to the platform. The platform underfoot flows well with the stride at all paces and while dense and a bit dull in feel due to its foam is a promising new approach to run shoe geometry. 

Liven the foam with more rebound and lighter weight while not compromising the midsole as outsole’sdurability would improve the Flow Velociti Wind 2 for me.  

Value at $160 is kind of in the eye (and foot) of the beholder.  The upper styling and quality is superb including the very effective “premium” Tatami Stitch to hold the heel if overall the upper is a bit toe box snug, overdone and might be simplified, lightened and softened without compromising the UA Wrap concept which is effective.  

Versatility is decent but the ride is not that exciting or dynamic and I think held back by what I might hazard to say is a last generation type foam more than anything else, a foam which is heavier and not as lively as some of its competitors’. 

Sam’s Score: 8.76 / 10

Ride: 8.6 (50%) Fit: 9.2 (30%) Value: 8 (15%) Style: 10 (5%)

Peter: The Velociti Wind 2 feels one or two iterations away from being a great shoe.  The upper is terrific—as long as you get the sizing right. I went up half a size and it fit great. The shoe feels a little bit dull and wouldn’t be my go to choice for either a daily trainer or a tempo shoe. It falls somewhere in the middle–and for $160 I don’t know that I'd choose it over other shoes out there. Ultimately it’s just not a fun or exciting ride for me. I do like the way they look though. 

Peter’s Score 7.5/10

Beto: Velociti Wind 2 is a winner from Under Armour for me, The  upper is amazing, one of the best I’ve run with the foot hold superb and very comfortable, especially at the heel and tongue. The Flow midsole is firm, yes, but very lively when you start pushing it. It is definitely a shoe that likes to go fast , with a very stable ride and  with a nice transition at each step and with lots of protection from the ground while moving very quietly at any pace. 

The combination of the Warp upper and Flow midsole/outsole really work together and feel very balanced in weight ratio once you push the pace or really at any pace as the foot feels very secure and responds very well, something I also liked in version 1.

Price point is an expensive $160 if you compare to others at the same price or even less but the looks of the upper and style of the shoe, which I liked a lot, the comfort and durability of the midsole/outsole makes the Velociti Wind 2 worth the money for me. Velociti Wind also has a free built-in Bluetooth connection to the UA Map My Run app so you can use this shoe as a Pedometer to connect to your Garmin watch when running on a treadmill to determine your pace and cadence, a very useful add on in my opinion.

Beto’s Score: 8.98 / 10

Ride: 9.0 (50%) Fit: 9.0 (30%) Value: 8.5 (15%) Style: 10 (5%)


Index to all RTR reviews: HERE

Saucony Kinvara (12/13) (RTR Review)

Sam: The Kinvara 13 is 1.3 oz lighter at a mere 7. 2 oz and $40 less. It has a higher stack and lower drop. It too is (mostly) a midsole as outsole shoe but does have some rubber. It shares mono mesh with the Velociti Flow but in an engineered almost overlay free and is roomier up front and almost as secure. It is stable but not quite as stable as the UA and is considerably more flexible. Its midsole is not quite as shock impact resistant as the Velociti but considerably livelier, leaning it more towards tempo than daily training for most. It is more fun, lighter, and less expensive, but potentially not lasting as long underfoot  as the UA but is my clear choice.

NB FuelCell Rebel v2 (RTR Review)

Mike P (9.5): I also find the sweet spot of the Rebel V2 to be uptempo paces, just short of workout level.  I find it difficult to run slower paces in both shoes, as they seem to urge you faster.  The NB is more bouncy, and can feel more unstable, but the ride is smooth once you get them rolling.  The UA is firmer, feels more stable, and definitely has better forefoot protection.  The UA upper feels more secure, but the NB definitely has more space and volume/comfort in the toebox.  Size 9.5 in the NB is perfect for me, sizing up to a 10 in the UA would likely be the best fit for me. 

Peter: Another shoe I have to size up in. A world of difference between the Velociti Wind 2 and the Rebel V2. The Rebel is bouncy, fun and energetic–it’s everything I wish the Velociti Wind could be. 

New Balance 880 V12 (RTR Review soon)

Peter: The 880 is also a protective daily trainer. It’s not the bounciest or most fun shoe, but there’s something about the ride that gives me a better sense of connection to the road and allows me to feel like I could go out in them for every easy run. I’d go 880 over VW 2.

Salomon Sonic Accelerate  (RTR Review)

Sam: An older shoe but a close comparison. The Salomon has a similar if a touch firmer Dow Infuse main midsole taking the heel impact edge off with an elastomer plug. It has plenty of front and back rubber. It’s upper is crude in comparison. Weighing just a touch less with less heel stack and the same forefoot it is more tempo focused than the UA and a far snappierfaster ride if one not as smooth and natural flowing as the Flow Velociti’s.

Saucony Endorphin Speed (RTR Review)

Mike P (10.0): The Endo Speed feels, and is - higher off the ground.  Due to that height plus the bounciness of the foam, there’s a slight instability that you must get used to.  The UA feels more grounded, but there’s less bounce and no plate impulse as with the Saucony.  The Endo Speed is a faster shoe, and I still prefer it for long intervals and tempos.  It would be a toss-up between the two for moderate/steady state runs.  I’d probably lean towards the UA for being more stable, as well as conditioning my feet and legs to not rely on superfoams or plates in training.

Topo Magnifly  4 (RTR Review)

Mike P (9.5): The Magnifly is the shoe I grab to rack up easy mileage, whereas the UA would feel a bit too firm and fast.  They are very different shoes (0 vs 8mm drop).  The Topo has an upper oriented towards comfort, not just in the toebox, but overall volume and materials.  The UA upper is more snug and performance oriented.  The Magnifly still feels smooth when picking up the pace a bit, but I’d pick the UA for dedicated uptempo running.

Atreyu Base Model (RTR Review)

Mike P (10.0): I had V1.  The main distinguishing factor is the upper - no contest, UA is more secure (toe box tightness aside), and also more supportive underfoot.  The Atreyu upper is quite basic, more likely to be hit or miss depending on your foot shape.  Both shoes feature exposed midsoles as outsole.  The UA feels firmer as well as more responsive to me.  UA also wins on traction as far as I could tell, and probably durability.  The Atreyu is much cheaper, but the value you get out of that largely rests on how much you like the more simply designed Atreyu.
