Which model to choose?
Many podiatric health professionals believe Under Armour is the best brand of athletic footwear, and actually when I've worn them I've been very happy with their performance on the wods.
If you are in doubt about the Hovr Rise or the TriBase Reign, it depends on your preferences, as there is an ideal shoe for each person. If your main priority is firmness of a hard shoe, with a low drop and a feeling of being on the ground, the Reign is the best suited.
If, on the other hand, you prefer a shoe with more cushioning even if you don't neglect the firmness of a weightlifting shoe, you're likely to find yourself better with HOVR.
If you are someone who likes to train with more than one shoe, I will tell you that in the more metabolic wods you will get the most out of the Hovr Rise and in the more strength wods you will prefer the TriBase Reign.
