Under Armour Embiid 1 Review

To review this basketball shoe, I looked at multiple different things. The main things I looked at are the traction, comfort, weight, durability, fit, and ventilation. I believe these things are the most important when reviewing a basketball shoe. I found these things by looking at other reviews online and wearing the shoe myself.

Traction- 8.5

The Under Armour Embiid 1 has good traction. You can stop on a dime when wearing these basketball shoes. The traction is very good, but not elite.

Comfort- 7.6

The Under Armour Embiid 1 is somewhat comfortable. The comfort isn’t really noticeable. If you want a super comfortable shoe, the Embiid 1 is not for you.

Weight- 8.1

The Under Armour Embiid 1 weighs about 13.9 oz. depending on what size you get. This is average for a basketball shoe, so the Embiid 1’s got an average grade.

Durability- 7.5

The Under Armour Embiid 1 is not that durable. If you only use it on basketball courts, it will be good. But if you use it outdoors, it will not last long.

Fit- 8.3

The Under Armour Embiid 1 has a solid fit. My feet did not move around a lot when I wore them.

Ventilation- 7.8

The Under Armour Embiid 1 has good ventilation. The only problem with it is that the fabric they used to make this shoe does make it harder for the air to get in and out.

Overall- 8.4

The Under Armour Embiid 1 is a solid basketball shoe. If you purchase this shoe, you won’t have any regrets. The Embiid 1 has good traction and is solid at everything else. However, the Embiid 1 is great for people with wide feet. Throughout all the research I have done, the Embiid 1 is one of the best basketball shoes you can buy if you have wide feet.

How does the Embiid 1 compare to Embiid’s old basketball shoe. 

Joel Embiid has been with Under Armour for a couple of years now. He has worn a couple of their basketball shoes. The last one he wore before the Under Armour Embiid 1 was the Under Armour Anatomix Spawn 2019. The Anatomix Spawn 2019 was a pretty good basketball shoe. It is very similar to the Embiid 1 with 2 key differences. It had much better traction, but much worse durability. This is a big difference from the Embiid 1. The Embiid 1 doesn’t have any big issues, or any great features. The Embiid 1 is a slight upgrade to the Anatomix Spawn 2019.
