The Under Armour Scorpio 2 is the second version of the original Scorpio. UnderArmour chose to make minimal changes to the shoe. The Scorpio 2 remains a good choice for daily road running. The shoe provides mild stability to the wearer while remaining fairly lightweight. Mild overpronators should feel stable when running in the Scorpio 2. The small changes are relegated to the shoe’s upper and improve an already solid shoe. The changes, though minimal, will ensure that loyal fans of the original Scorpio will continue to enjoy a comfortable running experience.
The outsole of the Under Armour Scorpio 2 is made of rubber. The shoe is meant for the roads but its lugs do protrude a fair bit so it can technically handle off-road conditions. The outsole is made up of two distinct types of rubber, carbon and blown. The dual-rubber composition of the sole makes it durable and grippy. Underfoot, the lugs feature a grid pattern for extra traction. The lugs are made up of Pebax material, a component included in many track spikes.
The midsole of the Under Armour Scorpio 2 features responsive Micro G cushioning. The midsole material provides rebound and protects from the impact of running. The foam also ensures the wearer experiences a smooth transition from heel to toe. A TPU post in the midfoot provides stability for the wearer. In addition, the heel counter, made of silver material, adds an interesting design element and ensures the heel is locked in.
The upper of the Under Armour Scorpio 2 is made up of synthetic mesh. The upper’s various overlays help to ensure a snug and secure fit. The new upper design enhances breathability. In addition, the lacing system of the Scorpio 2 has been much improved with the addition of texture to ensure the laces remain tied. The new upper material is fade resistant. This should please those concerned with the look of the shoe. The tongue has been updated as well and now features perforations to enhance ventilation. Added reflective elements in the upper ensure runners are visible in low-light conditions. Finally, the interior of the shoe includes a Micro G 4D sicklier for enhanced comfort and additional protection from impact forces.
The Under Armour Scorpio 2 is fairly lightweight but still manages to provide ample protection underfoot. The Micro G cushioning absorbs shock effectively. The outsole protects runners from slippage on uncertain terrain. In addition, the reflective additions on the upper ensure runners are protected and visible in low-light conditions. Runners were happy with the shoe’s ability to go long distances and felt they were well protected from impact. The tough upper is also durable enough to protect the shoe from rips and tears that were a problem with the previous version.
The Under Armour Scorpio 2 is a mild stability shoe made for the roads. Most reviewers were quite happy with the shoe’s ability to lend support. The grippy outsole provides a stable base upon which runners can propel forward. The midsole Micro G cushion offers up another supportive layer for the wearer. In addition, the snug fitting upper - disliked by some for being too tight - ensures runners do not wobble while they move. Finally, the shoe also features mild arch support. It’s enough to support the wearer without creating unwanted pressure points.
