7 Under Armour Shoes Perfect For Your Recovery Days

Jul 22 2020 - 1:00pm

When it comes to my workouts, I never skimp on my gear. In fact, I take pride in the portion of my closet I reserve for my favorite products. As I've progressed in my training, I've also learned the importance of owning separate recovery gear — aka the sports bras, leggings, and tanks I've designated for my recovery days. For me, having products designed and reserved for my lighter days allows me to save my high-performance gear for only the most intense of my workouts.

But when it comes to shoes, I can't say I'm as well-equipped. Sure, I have sneakers upon sneakers for HIIT class, weights, and running. But performance-quality shoes for my stretching, yoga, swimming, and recovery walks? Not so much. Because recovery days are just as important as working days, I'm vowing to invest in some recovery-ready shoes that still provide the support and comfort of my favorite workout shoes.

These seven pairs from Under Armour are all ideal for post-workout recovery wear thanks to their comfort fit, cushioned support, and high-quality design. Take a peek at the slides, sandals, and sneakers I'm eyeing for post-gym wear and beyond.

UA Atlantic Dune Sandals

The UA Atlantic Dune Sandals [2] ($22) boast a cushioned footbed for post-swimming comfort as well as a fast-drying TPU strap to avoid rubbing from sweat.

UA Alkali Ansa Fixed Slides

Ideal for slipping on before or after yoga, the UA Alkali Ansa Fixed Slides [3] ($25) feature a marbleized wide strap and a drop-in EVA footbed for underfoot cushioning.

UA Street Encounter Slides

For those recovery days where a nice park walk is in order, the UA Street Encounter Slides [4] ($60) may be the answer. They slide on like sandals but have a firm outsole for mobility, comfort, and traction.

UA Marbella VII Azalea Sandals

Don't be fooled by the bright peach color of the UA Marbella VII Azalea Sandals [5] ($35) — these are powerful sandals. The performance-crafted shoes feature a sculpted outsole and a dual layer of 4D Foam in the footbed, making them ideal for keeping tired feet supported after a workout.

UA Core Remix Upstream Camo Slides

The sleek and minimal UA Core Remix Upstream Camo Slides [6] ($45) are solid picks for post-gym time thanks to their full-length, contoured EVA footbed.

UA Ignite IX Trace Multi Slides

With memory foam that contours to feet post-workout, thus relieving pressure, the UA Ignite IX Trace Multi Slides [7] ($35) top my list for ultimate recovery comfort.

UA Core Remix Multi Slides

From after runs to after yoga, the UA Core Remix Multi Slides [8] ($45) are a solid pick.
