Under Armour Fall Favorites
There's more than one "first day of Fall" to get excited about if you're a track athlete! When the first day of Fall training rolls around, us track athletes are excited to get back to the grind and build back up. New season often means new gear, and I'm here today to share some of the best Fall drops by Under Armour this time around.
Ninety percent of this post is catered to female athletes (sorry, its just what I wear), but there are also male counterparts for a good portion of them (like pretty much all sneakers that exist), even if I don't have much to say/show about them.
Happy Fall training! May your first week not lay you out too bad. (mine will).
1. HOVR PHANTOM 2s
It's advertised as a running shoe, but I personally (and my teammates) just rock these for style. You can't blame us- any color way in these sleek yet simultaneously bold sneakers is guaranteed style. Pictured here is the RUNANYWR Phantom 2 in White/Seaglass Blue/and Beta. The Beta color (the red orange trim) is always a fun color, but using it here as an accent just screams Fall fashion to me.
The Phantom 2 as a whole was released just this past July, mid summer of 2020. UA claims the shoe is designed to feel "softer and smoother, with a built-in sockliner inspired by bike chamois." This refers to the material used in bike shorts. So if you're looking for a cushiony (is that a word?) running shoe with support and speed still kept in mind, the Phantom 2 might be worth a try.
Also, with a name like that, how can you not get a pair for #spookyseason am I right?
2. RUSH Mid and Low Sports Bras
A sports bra is a sports bra is a sports bra. Is how I USED to think. I've slowly learned what I actually like in a sports bra when it comes to support and comfort. This past year I fell in love with UA Infinity Mid Sports Bra and realized that I can actually find running bras that I feel most comfortable wearing.
Recently, UA's RUSH low and mid sports bras easily slid into first place in my heart. The language of "Low, Mid, or High" is used by UA to indicate level of support. I generally assume I need medium to high support, yet enjoy many of the bras labeled Low, especially the RUSH low, as indicated by the title here. However, actually pictured is the Mid version, which I also really find to be supportive while running but never uncomfortable. This Fall it comes in this cool camo design and others that are worth perusing.
And if you didn't know, the RUSH material is infused with minerals that absorb your body's energy and reflects it back into your muscles. Cool!
3. UA Sports Mask
I think this one mainly speaks for itself. Masks, kinda a necessity these days. Exercising with them is a bit of a downer, but we're thankful for brands like UA who took the time to create something that does its best to not hinder performance.
The UA Sportsmask now comes in FIVE different colors and FIVE different sizes, making it possible for everyone to get one that works for them. Other features worth noting: 1) water resistant outer shell 2) Anti-microbial treatment on the inside layer 3) Built in UPF 50+ for protection from sun and 4) Polyurethane open-cell foam to let air through but not moisture and sweat.
I love the mask, its more comfortable than I could have ever imagined. (Seriously, I called it a pillow mask for like a week). Ultimately, not the best situation. However, I applaud the job done here and feel comfortable advertising to fellow athletes (or anyone who wants a comfy mask!) Price point is a little high, especially when you can get cheap masks now, but I do think the quality is worth it if you can splurge. (Wearing size S/M here)
4. UA Meridian + Moisture Infused Crew Long Sleeve
In true UA fashion, we are now presented with another infused fabric for athletic wear. This one works to help your skin retain some moisture and stop it from drying out after several workouts a week.
UA boasts that you cannot see or feel it, but the material works much like lotion does to moisturize our skin. The UA Meridian line is a popular choice for fitness lovers, so this is a great addition for those loyal to the line. Simply wear the meridian + moisture combo clothes after workouts and see a difference in your skin! Outside of this long sleeve, you'll find these leggings, this crew, and more.
The material used is UA's "softest" for long lasting comfort. Can attest- it is very soft, breathable, and comfortable while giving the athleisure style we all love.
5. UA Recover Sweatpants
These sweatpants are...kinda everything. Not only are they warm, comfortable, and stylish... but they might help your muscles recover faster. UA has a plethora of products under their Recovery line, which they claim helps reflect energy back into your muscles to help with the recovery process.
And I say, if you're going to get sweatpants anyways, why not take a chance on recovery? I unfortunately can't find the correct link to these pictured right now, but will update the post when it's found. In the meanwhile, these UA Recover pants have my eye...and should have yours too.
6. Streaker 2.0 Inverse Short Sleeve
To be honest, wasn't BLOWN away by this top at first. It was different and I didn't really understand it. Moral of the story: don't judge it till you wear it! (There are exceptions to this rule so don't get too crazy) I love the contrast created by having a pattern on the top and not on the bottom and I love the texture given by the physical separation on the shirt between patterns as well.
The Streaker 2.0 Inverse Short Sleeve is comfortable and breathable. Its a little loose fitting without looking or feeling baggy. So, if you're like me and like there to be a good amount of movement, I highly recommend.
Neutral colors and blacks get repetitive in a wardrobe, but they are lovable nonetheless. A fun, yet simple, pattern elevates the style of the shirt without being too much.
On the left, Michelle (@ellerunswell), is actually "rocking" a Project Rock (the Rock's UA line) sports bra that is also a Fall favorite. The subtle pattern, mesh lining, and of course, the BULL, is a bit of an edgier look, but that is what we love about Project Rock, right?
RUNNER UPS, HONORABLE MENTIONS
Call them what you will, but these looks are also fire and also worth pointing out for you all to peruse.
The Recover Woven CB Jacket is honestly just to die for, with its block pattern and bold lettering. It comes in Black / Desert Rose / Metallic Rose Gold OR White / Seaglass Blue / Beta and either color works for Fall depending on your style. It has the UA Recover material, a storm flap, and a high neck to really prep you for some chillier fall days and carry you into the winter.
This Armor Sport Graphic Short Sleeve comes in some color ways that are just perfect and has a cool logo design down the side. It has a loose, yet not baggy, fit that is perfect for training. The front is solid and the back has mesh for a bit more breathability, making it a great shirt for the transition from warmer to a bit cooler days.
Lastly, just go on UnderArmour.com and search "fleece." Cannot stress enough how wonderful it will be to have some fluffy athletic gear as we head into the colder days. But I will make it easier and link some of the ones I'm spying on, like this unbelievably comfy looking Fleece Mirage Mock that comes in perfect Autumn colors (and is on sale!), the stylish Recovery Fleece Wrap Pullover, and these Recovery Fleece Pants. Keep your eyes peeled for more as the days get colder.
Bring on the Fall!!
