In 2019 NBA All-Star weekend dunk contest, you should have seen that Diallo frantically try to escape gravity, and then reap the cheers and 10 points. He weared Under Armour M-Tag Low. Today, we want to talk about the performance of Under Armour M-Tag Low.
Comfort Level of Vamp
The shoe head and heelpiece position of Under Armour M-Tag Low is made of synthetic leather. The leather is moderate, not too stiff and not too soft. It can protect well the toes and heelpiece on the move, and it also guarantee the comfort level.
The strong flexible mesh fabric is ventilated and comfortable. It’s light. And the thickness of lining is moderate.
The size EUR44 of Under Armour M-Tag Low is only about 330g. It’s very suitable for the players who have high request for breakthrough and starting speed.
Under Armour M-Tag Low also has extra 5 pieces of aequilate elastic cords, except the normal lacing system. It increases the wrapping performance. But the height of elastic cords is different with the shoelaces. So it doesn’t have great effect for the thin foot type.
But there is a thick bandage arounding the two sides of Under Armor M-Tag Low. After fastening the shoelaces, so the shoes can fit well with the foot. Overall, the lacing system of this sneaker is more suitable for the players who have wide foot.
Cushion Performance of Insole
The insole of Under Armour M-Tag Low don’t use HOVR cushion technology, but use injection molding EVA insole.
The flexibility of insole EVA foam is great. I can feel the feedback from insole when jumping. And the elasticity is fast and stable. As a pair of mid-end basketball shoes, the EVA cushion of Under Armour M-Tag Low insole is enough. Even so, we don’t suggest the heavy players to wear it.
Traction & Stability
Under Armour M-Tag Low uses the rubber outsole with traction pattern. The pattern is similar to water ripple. It has great traction performance on inner wood floor.
I am satisfied at the stability of Under Armour M-Tag Low. The anti-torsion performance is excellent. But most of time I only tested it on the inner wood floor. So the anti-torsion performance on out-field can’t be confirmed now.
