KNOW YOUR TECH breaks down the scientific technology used in your favorite sneakers and activewear. Let’s demystify your next purchase: today’s technology is Under Armour's Micro G cushioning system. This proprietary foam technology is the platform technology that gives your favorite Under Armour sneakers that responsive, bouncy feel. 

What is it? A foam that is 30% thinner than it's standard counterparts works to decrease the overall weight of the shoe and offers a low-to-the ground ride and responsiveness.

How does it work? By allowing the foot to be lower to the ground it provides the athlete with a better feel for what's underfoot, and it enhances the ability to change direction quickly. It's also designed as a high rebound, low-compression set foam. "High Rebound" is another way of saying that is has a higher level of bounce and responsiveness, which gives you a little extra lift and energy return.
