About a month ago, I received an email from Under Armour Running asking if I would like to test out a new pair of shoes. Because I have a brain, of course I said yes. I mean, I love shoes. Who wouldn’t want new shoes?!
Full disclosure: I have been a die hard Nike street running shoe wearer for 3 years now. I swear by them. So for me to try out a new pair of shoes was a little off. I was pretty sure I was going to hate them.
Boy was I wrong. They. Are. Perfect. They’re light (like my Nike Free’s) but the back of the ankle is made of the same material as the entire rest of the shoe and flexes with the movement of my leg/foot. It’s not hard and stiff and they don’t rub. AND they are wide enough across my toes that they aren’t smooshed.
And look, they even sent me a pair in my #1 favorite color!
In short. These are my new favorites. I love literally everything about them. I wore them for my first race of 2015 (mentioned in my previous blog post) and was in heaven the entire time. No pain during or after.
Under Armour Speedform Gemini are where it’s at. Thank you Under Armour Running for my shoes! I wear them running, to the gym, to the store….pretty much everywhere.
