Stuff I Like – UA Highlight Delta

Dudes like comfortable shoes too, and these are some of the most comfortable I’ve worn in awhile. While I don’t spend as much time in my feet as I used to, I do find myself attending at least one trade show per month. I began wearing them last Fall and these were awesome at SHOT Show.

Despite the mid height upper, the Highlight Delta is essentially a running shoe. The heelcup and lacing system lock my heel in place and the instep is plenty wide. However, the uppers are mesh, so I’ m not wearing these when it’s raining or if it’s sandy because it will just end up in the shoe. Having said that, they breathe very well on hot days.

The Stealth Great colorscheme is murdered out, with tone on tone UA logo, so these won’t stand out in a crowd.

Details:
-Breathable mesh fabric with seamless construction is both lightweight & durable
-Molded heel cup offers a form-fit that keeps the foot from sliding
-Ribbed ankle collar provides a snug, bootie-like fit with an extended cut & unparalleled support
-Soft foam inside ankle collar stays comfortable against inside of heel & ankle
-Lacing system features deeply cut eyestays built to move freely with the foot
-Two-piece Charged Cushioning® midsole pairs a soft, plush layer of foam on top of a layer of dense, harder foam for the ultimate blend of support & comfort
-Solid rubber outsole covers high impact zones for greater durability with less weight
-Deep flex grooves provide extra flexibility where you need it most
-Offset: 10 mm

    Nice lookin shoes, I’ll have to put these on my wish list.

    As for getting wet, I bet these would be just fine for a day at the river in water as I have some Scarpa’s that are mesh and I can walk the river and after leaving water each step compresses water right out, dry in no time. Then again Texas sun dries just about everything in no time!

    UA makes some of the worst footwear in the industry. I know many have commented about it here in the past. I spent 20 years in the footwear industry and never saw a company with more quality issues and negative feedback. I would see people wearing their tactical stuff even, and they ALWAYS blow out on both sides of the toe box. Their stuff sells because they are a cool on trend brand. I would guess you get paid by them and/or get it free to say it is good stuff.

      This is why you always see guys wearing the latest UA boot offering. The others fell apart inside a year.

      Things I’ve learned:
      But boots/ from boot/shoe companies.
      Buy clothes from clothing companies.

      The only UA pair of boots I’ve worn at work broke an eyelet the first time I put them on, and the replacement pair lost a heel loop the first time I put THEM on. Just ripped off the boot as soon as I went to tug it on my foot. Once they were on, they were the most comfortable boot I’ve ever worn…for a few months before they completely fell apart.

    I will absolutely agree that UAs tactical line is absolute garbage but I have had a few pairs of their athletic shoes and they held up just fine for walking around. Maybe I got lucky.

    &@#$! No wide sizes…

    Got a pair of Bolt Orange for my training. Both the bouncing and lock-down feel great to me.

    Will look great with my matching FUBU blue on black jacket.

    I have a pair of the Under Armour Tabor ridge hiking boots. They fit well, are very light, and have withstood constant abuse in the mountains where I live. I remember hearing complaints about the tactical footwear not holding up, but I gotta say, the sport footwear UA makes holds up.
