Under Armour TriBase Reign Cross Training Shoe Review

In today’s cross training shoe review, we take a deep dive look at the brand new Under Armour TriBase Reign.

The TriBase Reign is Under Armour’s first ever shoe dedicated specifically for CrossFit-style training, so we put it these shoes through the same tests that we’ve performed in all of our cross training shoe reviews.

What we were most interested in with the Under Armour TriBase Reign shoe is how they would perform against other cross training models that have been on the market for multiple iterations. We learned that a lot of what makes the Reign’s performance excel in the gym is due to the unique construction features they offer.

So how did the TriBase Reigns compare to our best reviewed cross training shoes? We’ll say this, they made one of our lists for good reason!

Construction Notes

2. Mesh and ripstop outer construction
3. Low-cut design, and minimalistic boot
4. Wider toe box for full toe splay

Performance Thoughts

In the squat and deadlift, the TriBase Reign model performed pretty well, and offered a base that was pretty resistant to compression. They were not the softest cross trainers we’ve ever tried, and they fell slightly more towards the more rigid cross trainer spectrum. In respects to weight, they handled loads up to 315 lbs exceptionally well.

The area in training where the TriBase Reign shoes excelled the most was with agility.

The low-cut and lightweight feeling they provide made performing jumping and dynamic movements feel great. Additionally, these shoes provided a lot of responsiveness with repetitive ground strikes due to their Micro G Foam midsole.

I like that background color scheme. Have you tried the Micro G Fuel? My favorite trainer but for jumping and jumping it’s the Speedform Fortis

Alex Rodz says:

Can you do a review of the Adidas Pureboost Trainer?

feifonglong says:

Any heel slip in this shoe? Also is the rubber on the medial side painful on the arch?

Mário Cerqueira Silva Filho says:

This is confortable in sockless use?

andrew Campos says:

Excited to get a pair, had difficulty picking a pair of good shoes, thanks. Loved the video !

Brandon Myers says:

I really wanted to like them but they are so narrow in the midfoot.
