One of the best neutral shoes of 2017

Under Armour has gone a long way with its running shoes in the last years. The UA Charged Bandit 3 is the culmination of the brand's efforts. It's a great neutral shoe that comes with just the right amount of cushioning and good flexibility. Reasonably priced, it logically received the 'Best Buy' Runner's World award that rewards the shoe with the best value for money. We are also pleased with the decrease in heel to toe drop from 10 to 8mm with this 3rd model of the series. In conclusion, the Under Armour Bandit 3 is a great shoe that should be suitable for most runners.

Comfort and support for a Neutral Shoe
Value For Money
  • Great overall comfort
  • Breathable upper knit
  • Improved design
  • Flexible yet supportive heel counter
  • Cheaper than its main competitors like the Nike Pegasus
  • Still a bit heavy for a neutral shoe (though 20 grams lighter than the Bandit 2)

  • Structure

The Charged Bandit 3 feature the UA SpeedForm® construction. It is supposed to perfectly mold to the foot of the runner.

  • Outsole

The outsole is made of solid rubber for greater durability. Under Armour claims that it reduces the weight of the shoe but the Bandit 3 still reaches 259 grams.

  • Midsole

The Charged Cushioning® midsole uses compression molded foam to provide a comfortable ride.

  • Upper

The upper is made of flexible knit that wraps very well around the foot. It’s very breathable and features a solid heel counter to keep the foot in place. Good to note, however, that only a small part of the counter is rigid. This will please runners with pain at the achilles insertion point of the heel.

  • Other features

Anti-microbial Ortholite® sockliner

Flex grooves
