Under Armor Charged Covert X reviewed for Performance
Although the exact origin of the laceless shoes and especially laceless sneakers is hard to pinpoint, it’s wildly accepted that this specific design wasn’t invented because of laziness. In fact, it was designed out of necessity.
Before the introduction of the laceless sneakers to the grown-up part of the population, they were a pretty standard type of shoes among the children’s footwear. Think about it. If you try to tie the laces of your energetic 2-year child, you’ll be doing that for the next 20 minutes. So, shoe companies tried a simpler solution. No laces in the shoelaces for stress-free parents and that trend later on transferred into the adult footwear.
But, today we’ll present Under Armour Men’s Charged Covert X Laceless Sneaker. A sleek and modern piece of footwear designed for the active men on the go that happens to be also a laceless sneaker. It’s beautiful as it is practical, but first things first.
UA Microthread upper

The UA Microthread upper has a comfortable, sock-like fit with embroidered details, that just looks beautiful and don’t even get us started with the technology itself. When it’s applied on a great structure like Under Armour Men's Charged Covert X Laceless, the UA Microthread makes the shoes to dry faster, prevents chafing and blister forming, and also makes this shoe wearable for any season. It’s raining outside? It’s the hottest day of July?
It doesn’t matter. Thanks to the UA Microthread technology in the upper, your feet with breath easily, they’ll be ventilated and kept dry from the external influences, like the rain that surprised on your morning jog. The shaft of the sneaker measures approximately low-top from the arch, making it super comfortable and supported on your feet. And the most important feature of the sneaker is the lack of shoelaces present. The laceless design of the sneaker creates a practical slip-on construction for quick and easy entry of the foot each and every time. If you’re a very busy or impatient person that just have the time or energy.
The Under Armour Charged Covert X comes in charcoal black and City Khaki/Baja colors and they’re both stunners when it comes to the overall look and style of the sneaker. The laceless design brings out the effortlessly cool vibe of the sneaker and makes it stylish and versatile too.
Yes, the Under Armour Charged Covert X is bursting with elegance and style basically at the seams, but we just can’t forget the quality that makes this shoe wholesome and easy to wear. First, it weighs just 9.12 oz (per sneaker) and the lack of lace presence doesn’t diminish the overall quality or the grip of the upper part of the feet. The sneakers have the much needed grip because of the UA Microthread technology used in the upper, while the Charged Cushioning in the midsole adds stability and balance to the arch of the feet. There’s the removable insole, and the gorgeous and light leather makes the design even more comfortable and beautiful.
