Under Armour ClutchFit® Drive 3 Performance Review

Under Armour  ClutchFit® Drive 3 is the 3rd version of the ClutchFit® collection. ClutchFit® Drive is the main shoe series for S. Curry, who have been not the signature shoes at present  , so the ClutchFit® series can also be said to be Curry’s exclusive boots.

How about the performance  for this shoe?

The ClutchFit® series of shoes has always been known for die-cut EVA sockliner provides underfoot cushioning & support,webbed loop, speed-lacing system and abrasion-resistant TPU toe cap protects against toe drag & increases durability.

 

Traction :

 

The  full length of the ClutchFit® Drive 3 is combined with the Charge Cushioning energy midsole and the Micro G foam material layer. The Charge Cushioning energy midsole is a common midsole material for the UA running shoe series. In basketball shoes, the  full length cushioning’s performance is nice , whatever the responsive and feedback.

 

it’s herringbone, and it covers the outsole completely. But it’s flat, completely flat; the grooves are flattened off, the sole is flat from front to back, and it seems to have no bite ability. because the Clutchfit Drive 3 sticks.but the grip  actually nice , even the traction actually just so so.

The herringbone pattern on the sole give the shoes a good grip.

 

The black and red color look more elegant . In recent years, the design of the shoes has emphasized the fancy look, and the ClutchFit® Drive 3 look will be more unique . Red laces, set against the black color, look bright and vibrant. The arrow-like lines on the side of the shoe, along with the UA classic LOGO on the side of the shoe, make the pair of shoes full of texture.

 

ClutchFit® Drive 3 is not like the sole design of a typical shoe, it will make people feel very slippery. ClutchFit® Drive 3 allows me  to do a lot of emergency stop and accelerate the movement. The ClutchFit® series was once a good partner for Curry to play on the court. It provides the most important core elements behind the various cut-in actions of the guards.

 

Cushioning:

Charged and Micro G layered together makes everything better. When the Clutchfit 1 came out the looks were the first thing that made the public stay away — true hightop, loud colors, weird webbing. But when the shoe was tried on, and the Micro G was felt, the shoe sold itself.

ClutchFit® Drive 3 is not like the sole design of a typical shoe, it will make people feel very slippery. ClutchFit® Drive 3 allows the author to do a lot of emergency stop and accelerate the movement. The ClutchFit® series was once a good partner for Curry to play on the court. It provides the most important core elements behind the various cut-in actions of the guards, namely the grip and brake functions.

 

I just running the ClutchFit® Drive 3  for jumps, shots, layups, etc., in addition to its weight does not affect the jump, the cushioning ability of the shoes after landing also impressed me. In addition, ClutchFit® Drive 3’s composite midsole design greatly reduces the impact of basketball running and jumping, which is very important for basketball players’ heels and knees.

ClutchFit® Drive 3’s Charged Cushioning energy midsole combined with the Micro G foam layer is designed to slow down the impact of running and jumping, but it also achieves the spring bounce function, allowing people to land or brake. Can generate enough momentum to immediately proceed to the next action. I  did  some sprinting, slamming and stopping with ClutchFit® Drive 3 , the responsive and feedback also great.

 

 

Fitting

When the laces are pulled tight, the tongue pulls down and the foot is sucked into the midsole, so the lockdown is nice too.The ankle cut and high lacing keeps the heel from sliding around and when the heel counter gets involved, so the fitting is great. you can buy the true size.

Overall , UNDER ARMOUR has been able popularity  in the basketball market.  I believes that high-tech design is in line with the targeted needs of players. ClutchFit® Drive 3 is a pair of high-tech shoes that meet the needs of basketball players.
