Under Armour Bandit XC Spikeless $100
The Bandit XC gets a little mid production bump, an almost update. The upper is a waffle-like mesh with welded overlays shaping the toe, and wrap back to the sides of the heel and its stiffer material. The rearfoot has a cuff that covers the ankle, lending support and securing the fit, and a small strip of foam smooths the contact at the ankle improving sockless use. The lacing is slightly offset, and a panel of synthetic leather supports the medial side of the foot. The midsole is a simple layer of EVA, and a low-profile geometry makes them efficient, just as one would expect. The outersole has a horse-shoe-shaped forefoot and a Pebax nylon plate under the ball of the foot, with only lugs in the spikeless version, but with spikes as well as lugs in the spiked model. The heel is covered in sharkskin-patterned rubber for additional traction. The sum of the parts makes this a tough combination to beat.
Sizes: Unisex 3.5-12,13
Weight: Men 6.3 oz. (size 11, w/ 4 spikes)
Fit: snug heel and ankle, close forefoot
