This article doesn't mention how bad UA's shoes are.

I haven't tried them. You have a pair?

No, I was told not to buy a pair by various Dick's employees. They've had many returns of those shoes, and even the employees who got a free pair didn't care for them.

Not too suprising. It may take a while before they get their shoe game right.

Definitely. I like the quality of their compression gear and shirts, as I've had several that have lasted 2 years and counting. Similar brands (nike and adidas) are not built to last long in my experience.

I thought they opened the Aurora, IL one a while ago. Either way though I haven't had a chance to make it out there yet.

I have 3 pairs of UA shoes. The new Protos. 2 pairs of the low tops and a pair of the hi's. I have no problem with them. They're a bit on the narrow side but so is Nike. They arent anything ground breaking but they're good shoes.

I dont know about you guys, but UA is a little too expensive for my taste.
But its the only brand I'll ever wear again.

Hopefully their shoes will come around. I tried some on and they were a bit narrow for me as well but otherwise they felt very nice.

I have several of their shirts and compression underwear. Better quality than Nike IMO.

I'd give them a little bit of time to figure out the shoe business

However, their clothing is phenomenal, I never play a match without wearing their compression shorts and I usually wear one of their T-Shirts as well

I am still waiting for a UA tennisshoe. Like a mix between the Speed and Evade with a hardcourt and a clay court sole.
