Shoe Review: Under Armour Speedform Gemini
This is the 5th edition in the Speedform family following: Speedform RC, Speedform XC, Speedform StudioLux, and Speedform Apollo.
This shoe fits like a glove. It's light, but still has a bit of cushion, allowing the runner to have some stability, but some great spring in their stride as well.
This shoe is the 5th shoe of Under Armour that I have used and I am a huge fan. A very comfy shoe that is like a second skin. I experienced no shin splints, ankle soreness, or knee pain while wearing these shoes. When running in new shoes, I have found that it takes a few runs to adjust to the shoe. Some shoes come with a few of the above injuries for the first few miles, but eventually find their stride.
The Speedform Gemini was a relief to slip on a pair and just get me.. Sounds so strange, but after the many shoes and miles I've run, it's tough to find a pair of shoes that you find both comfort and speed with. Also I recovered well after my run. Here is data from my runs with these shoes:
This is a wonderful shoe for both novice and seasoned runners. It eases you into whatever pace and mileage you have for the day!
Fits like second skin
Adapted quickly with no negative side effects
These thoughts are my own. I did receive these shoes for free from Under Armour/Map My Fitness.
