Aesthetically I was in awe after unwrapping the Under Armor Speedform Apollo. It looked good, felt light and I couldn’t wait to pop it on my foot and take them out for a spin. The Armor Vent material constructing the upper has the shoe feeling more like a supportive sock, ideal for a natural running stride as well as keeping stable while I’m lifting in the gym.
I’ve come to think of my Speedforms as hassle free. By that I mean I never have to be distracted by a moving tongue or waste time slipping the insole back inside after I take them off. Nope, never! The tongue is sewn into the upper and the insole is a continued piece from the supper comfy Micr G midsole!
This shoe may be basic but it doesn’t slack of the essentials. A rubber traction pattern makes up the outsole keeping me from sliding around when I’m hitting the TRX or working on my kettle bell skills. During long days training clients I’m on my feet for hours on end without breaks but the support and comfort level stays on point keeping my feet happy and my mind focused. On my rest days the sleek and slim silhouette make it an easy everyday go-to for running errands or a casual happy hour.
I ended up with the black/crystal color way, perfect for the spring pastel pallets but still modest enough to wear with pretty much everything. Teals go well with pink (As seen on the outsole) so that’s typically what I throw into the outfit mix if I’m feeling a bit more playful! Add some black leggings or light wash jeans and your style game is sure to be strong! I am crazy stoked on these sneakers and I’ve got a strong feeling you will too.
Thanks for the dope kicks, Under Armor! You pretty much nailed it on this one!
