Anyone who has ever been to the gym or on a run with ill-fitting trainers will know just how distracting it can be when your foot is shifting around inside your shoe. What’s more, even your favourite trainers don’t seem to fit the same each time you wear them! Which is why we think Under Armour’s latest innovation, Under Armour RailFit is pretty darn cool!

Known for their out-the-box technology in the world of fitness gear, the brand based this newly launched innovation on the premise that laces should adjust to the wearer, not the other way around. So, Under Armour re-engineered the traditional tightening technology and produced RailFit – an adjustable lacing system that enables you to find your perfect fit every time.

To find the perfect fit the wearer simply slides the moveable eyelets to the exact preferred position for the ideal personalised fit. The shoe also features elastic heel straps to lock your foot in place, ensuring that there’s no slipping and sliding while you’re working out.

Other features of the RailFit shoe include a full-length EVA midsole, for ample cushioning; an embedded footbed, for added durability and traction; as well as a dual-layer mesh and a flexible foam upper, for additional support.

Under Armour RailFit is available in a variety of colours including black, white and olive green and retails at R1899 from Under Armour stores in Sandton, Mall of Africa, Menlyn and V&A Waterfront, as well as selected Cross Trainer, Sportscene, Sneaker Edition and Sneakers Inc. stores around the country.
