In short: The tallest Under Armour shoe is the HOVR Summit Fat Tire Cuff. It has a stack height of 37mm in the heel and 31mm in the forefoot, adding roughly 1.33 inches to your height.
UA’s running shoes have three different collections. They are the UA Flow, UA HOVR™, and UA Charged. The tallest Under Armour shoes will fall under the UA HOVR™ collection.
Under Armour shoes equipped with UA Flow cushioning are totally rubberless, so they do little to add to your overall height. However, these shoes are light and ridiculously grippy.
Under Armour’s Charged Cushioning is a premier shock absorption and energy return technology. It ensures less impact with each step but does not add a lot of height.
Shoes from the UA HOVR™ collection, on the other hand, are not shy. They feature beefy midsoles and thick cushioning, all of which adds a substantial amount of height.
Here are Under Armour shoes that make you taller, ranked by height:

Under Armour HOVR Phantom 3
The UA HOVR Phantom 3 has a stack height of 25mm in the heel and 17mm in the forefoot (8mm drop). Expect the shoes to add about 0.83 inches to your overall height.
As far as running shoes go, I think the Under Armour HOVR Phantom 3 is pleasing to the eye. It’s perfect to wear as a fun lifestyle sneaker, but I wouldn’t wear it for running performance.
I really want to like this shoe because the pair looks sleek and futuristic. However, once in action, I was disappointed by a lack of cushioning, lockdown, and stability.
While heel stability is very good, there’s not near enough cushioning in the forefoot. Pushing off with my toes felt like pushing directly into the ground with almost nothing in between.
I think the pair is more of a “do a little of everything” shoe — workouts, short runs, casual wear, etc. Running shoes for people who really don’t run all that much.
That said, I would wear the UA HOVR Phantom 3 as a lifestyle sneaker. It adds about 0.83 inches to my height so I can look slightly taller when I’m wearing it.
Under Armour HOVR Machina 3
The UA HOVR Machina 3 has a stack height of 28mm in the heel and 20mm in the forefoot (8mm drop). Expect the shoes to add about 0.94 inches to your overall height.
Compared to the previous versions of the Machina, the Machina 3 is equipped with dual-density HOVR cushioning, specifically a firmer responsive forefoot paired with a softer heel.
The heel portion feels exactly like you’d expect and similar to previous Under Armour running shoes equipped with HOVR. However, the big difference is in the forefoot.
The forefoot feels quite a bit snappier and tougher, which makes this particular pair of running shoes better for track work and shorter, faster runs.
Although the UA HOVR Machina 3 adds almost an inch to your height, I wouldn’t want to wear the pair as lifestyle shoes. The aesthetics are simply not good enough for my liking.
Under Armour HOVR Infinite 3
The UA HOVR Infinite 3 has a stack height of 29mm in the heel and 21mm in the forefoot (8mm drop). Expect the shoes to add about 0.98 inches to your overall height.
With a midsole thicker than earlier Under Armour running shoes that used HOVR, like the Phantom and the Sonic, the Infinite stands taller but isn’t necessarily softer.
It’s not as bouncy as say, the Adidas Ultraboost, but the landings are soft enough, as if there is a subtle, muted return as the load is released. Overall, a stable pair of running shoes.
The pair looks nice and is one of the tallest Under Armour shoes.
Under Armour HOVR Mega 3 Clone
The UA HOVR Mega 3 Clone has a stack height of 33mm in the heel and 25mm in the forefoot (8mm drop). Expect the shoes to add about 1.14 inches to your overall height.
The UA HOVR Mega 3 Clone is an all-around running shoe for the neutral runner. This shoe is designed for runners who need a balance between flexibility and cushioning.
I like the substantial HOVR cushioning that gives me a boost whenever I run. On days when I walk, the 3D foam insoles offer extra cushioning and support, giving me extra comfort.
As far as looks go, the Mega 3 Clone is not bad. The upper is breathable too, equipped with strategically placed synthetic panels for added support and abrasion resistance.
Under Armour HOVR Mega 2 MVMNT
The UA HOVR Mega 2 MVMNT has a stack height of 33mm in the heel and 25mm in the forefoot (8mm drop). Expect the shoes to add about 1.14 inches to your overall height.
This is the first Under Armour shoe on this list that is actually a lifestyle sneaker, not an actual running shoe. Not only does it look sleek, but it’s also one of the tallest UA shoes.
As far as lifestyle shoes go, this particular UA shoe is supremely comfortable thanks to its responsive UA HOVR™ cushioning that reduces impact and helps propel you forward.
There are plenty of colorways to choose from, but my favorite is the Black History Month edition. It’s a work of art, thanks to the combination of black, purple, yellow, and turquoise.
Overall, the UA HOVR Mega 2 MVMNT looks better in real life than in the pictures. It’s a little wider than normal running shoes, has a good cushion in the sole, and looks super cute.
And the best part is, one of the tallest Under Armour shoes adds more than one inch of height.
Under Armour HOVR Summit Fat Tire Cuff Running Shoes
The UA HOVR HOVR Summit Fat Tire Cuff has a stack height of 38mm in the heel and 30mm in the forefoot (8mm drop). Expect the shoes to add about 1.33 inches to your overall height.
The tallest Under Armour shoe is the HOVR Summit Fat Tire Cuff. It has a substantial amount of cushioning, which I think could be one of the most comfortable shoes I’ve worn.
I was looking for something different and this fit the bill.
Granted, I only ran a little over 13 miles with the HOVR Summit Fat Tire, but the pair feels good mile after mile. When I wear the shoes for casual walking, I feel comfortable all day long.
I’ve finally found a shoe that can handle being on your feet all day or putting in miles walking around an amusement park. Also water resistant enough to keep your feet dry in the rain
I doubt I will ever use the zip-on collars/sleeves, so I would like to see new models come out without them. Give us some solid colors too, and this is a good shoe that is well worth the price.
