Under Armour Horizon RTT Trail Shoes Final Review

“Disclaimer: I received a free pair of Under Armour Horizon RTT Trail Shoes to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to review find and write race reviews!”

I’ve been doing a ton of trail running over the last year for a few reasons.  First, it’s definitely easier on my knees after my heel striking on concrete!  Secondly, being in the woods and trails around me is a perfect way to unwind and take in the beauty of nature.  Having a quality pair of trail shoes is a must of you run as much as I have been doing.  I have at least 4 name brands of trail shoes and all have their specific qualities and usage.  The Under Armour Horizon RTT trail shoes fit just right as I went a half size up on them after having my last few trail shoes become a little too tight after some hard use.  Going up a size was the right decision and wearing the right socks with them only ensured a non slip feel.


Most of my trail runs were done on limestone or dirt tracks and they did the job.  I had great traction on the dirt and even in the creeks that I crossed.  I never had any heel slip or felt like the shoe was coming off.  The aggressive tread on the shoe was great for the dirt, logs, or roots that I came across.  As for mud, the deep tread tended to build up and make it slick but so did all of my other trail shoes.  Smacking them up against a tree or stump got rid of that!

I’ve worn them for the greater part of a month and put well over 100 miles on them in both easy and technical trails.  They are holding up great with little wear on the tread and a few scratches on the toe box.  I never got any blisters in the heal where I usually do with other shoes.  I love the color and look of the shoe and can see myself getting another pair in the future when these ones are worn out.

  4. Nice review Frank! I didn’t opt-in on this one as I was recovering from an injury and trail running would be very limited…looks like these work pretty well though. Nice summary, cheers!
