Editor’s Conclusion
The Under Armour Speedfit 2.0 is a low mid-range boot/shoe primarily for hiking but works well for everyday wear as a comfortable stylish boot.

Under Armour describe these as having a molded upper with an anatomical design. For protection out on moderate trail conditions, the boot features a nice welded forefoot-overlay and a TPU toe cap. Fit is boosted with a vamp and molded tongue.

The support is nicely enhanced thanks to the ESS rock-plate. For traction, the outsole is patterned with rubber lugs which are described as enhancing grip on a broad range of surfaces.

The hiking boot is stylish, looks good, feels comfortable from the moment it is put on. The UA Speedfeet 2.0 do feel like a custom-built shoe - good for moderate hiking and even as a nice daily walk around.

Are these up to performance standards when compared to other mid-range hiking boots? Read on to find out.

Key Features


The UA Speedfit 2.0 is designed for trail hiking in moderate-friendly weather conditions. With this thought in mind, let's take a look at the comfort designed into this hiking boot.

These do give a personalized feeling for fit. The upper is made of synthetic and feels very much like it molds to your foot shape. All seams are welded for comfort and durability. The memory foam gives support that shapes to the wearer's feet. An Ortholite sock liner smothers harsh impacts and fights the build-up of bad odors. The stability certainly ensures comfort and these have built-in EVA midsoles and an ESS rock plate.

The molded tongue does feel comfortable but user feedback suggests it should be designed to not allow dust and grit to get into the top area of the boot.


These are light on the feet. The fabric used in building the boot is all synthetic and this means light materials which offer fair durability.

Despite being light, the makers have not scrimped on design and protection. The toe cap is very protective and more protection is evident through the light textile uppers with welded seams.

User feedback is overwhelmingly positive about how light and comfortable these boots feel when out on the trail. The ergonomic design holds around the ankle and around the heel for stability and comfort.

The lace eyelets are plastic; many suggest upgrading the design for a better lace-up system, particularly because plastic lace-up eyelets may not be durable enough and the system allows dirt to enter in dusty and gritty conditions.


The traction on these boots is a patterned network of rubber lugs which extend up to the toes. Traction is good on standard trail surfaces. The lugs bite deep so the capability for good traction on muddy trails seems reasonable.

The rubber outsole traction is high-tech and designed for a variety of surfaces, though user feedback suggests that these are best used for moderate trails in moderate weather conditions.

Wet Weather

The Under Armour Speedfit 2.0 is clearly designed for warm-weather hiking. The boots uppers are treated for waterproofing though consider this feature very limited. If you hit wet weather, these will not have much defense against water.

Comparison to Other Hiking Shoes and Boots

The boots are certainly light and comfortable when compared to similar models which are often heavier. The cushioned comfort is appreciated by many and the stability has good responses from users. However, there are many other options that can perform in dry weather, wet weather and even challenging weather, while these are meant to be worn only in dry weather.

The materials are all synthetic and it has to be said that compared to other models which have a similar price tag, the durability of synthetic used in the construction has to be questioned. Many buyers advise that the makers should continue the boot but upgrade the quality level of the materials.

Traction is impressive, it can grip in moderate muddy weather. The support is there but there are boots close to this price range that have more supportive features.


When looking for a warm weather hiking boot, these are absolutely fine. They give the right performance, they are supportive enough, the comfort is very good, the level of protection is appropriate, stability is nice and grip on trail surfaces is sound and consistent.

The materials used for constructing the UA Speedfit 2.0 are clearly put in place with moderate hiking in decent weather in mind and if you push the boots beyond this criteria, you might face durability issues.

As a daily work boot or casual wear, these will work. They are very nicely designed and look stylish. While considering this model, we advise looking at more reviews which will enable you to factor in the pros and cons which have been highlighted here.

If you're into warm-weather hiking, these will work just fine.
