|The Under Armour Horizon RTT|
|While there seems like a lot of ventilation on the shoe, it does not actually breathe very well.|

Durability and stability. The RTTs have what seems like some pretty solid lugs on the bottom for trail running. Though they might wear quickly on the roads, they should hold up pretty good on the trails. That's not a guarantee by any means, and I could be totally wrong.
The shoe is probably a more neutral foot shoe. I need a bit more stability in my shoes and could definitely feel a lack of support on my right foot the longer I wore them. I also did not find them comfortable to just wear around as I do with some of my trainers because of the lack of support and because they got too hot as I noted earlier.
|The tread on the Horizon RTTs does seem to be pretty solid for trail running.|
Conclusion. I think these might be a good trainer for a neutral stride trail runner who wants some good traction. If, however, you are looking for something with a bit more support or for a shoe that breathes well, this might not be the best fit. I see them fitting into my line-up more on colder days when I am concerned about my feet getting colder on a short trail run, or possibly as a good shoe to strap snowshoes on in the wintertime.
I think that they are a fair first attempt by Under Armour into trail running and I look forward to seeing improvements in the future. Enjoy!
