Under Armour Speedform Apollo

My friends at Under Armour recently sent me the new Speedform Apollo shoe to test out. I am usually a stability shoe kind of girl so I wasn’t so sure, but after walking and running in them, I can say I’m a believer (for short distances, with my super high arches I’m scared to run more than 4 miles in them).

These shoes are crafted in a clothing factory (cool!) to make sure the fit is as comfortable as the Under Armour clothing that we ALL love. The fabric is so comfortable and flexible the Apollos didn’t even require to be “broken in!”

This is a slim shoe that has zero bulk. It has a seamless heel cup so rubbing shouldn’t be an issue, as it hasn’t been for me.

The shoes have a perforated toe so they are very breathable. There is also a 4D foam sock liner that conforms to your foot’s shape, so you don’t have to worry about sliding around in your shoes.

They weigh only 6.5 ounces, and have cool molded toe detail. I felt like the ride was very smooth, but not SO minimal that I could feel every crack in the sidewalk. My feet felt great the whole time, and I didn’t have any issues afterwards. I noticed every though the shoe is very light and form fitting, the sole is actually pretty thick which gives some nice support without being bulky.

The women’s shoe comes in four great color combos and retails for $99.99. You can purchase them here through my affiliate link, too!

QOTD: Do you prefer a more stable shore or a lightweight minimal shoe?

Disclosure: I was provided these shoes by my friends at Under Armour, however all opinions are my own.

  2. I am really liking Under Armour recently, all my favorite running tops are from them!

    These do look super comfy, I’d love to try them on sometime!

  3. I thought I was stability but when I started having ITBS issues, my running store moved me to a more neutral shoe. Now I’m in a zero drop since my PT wanted me using zero drop shoes and I stayed in the neutral line.

  4. Oh I love the color!!! They look super light too!

  5. I usually run in a neutral shoe – I would be a little scared to run far in a minimal shoe too! But those look like great shoes, and for a great price!

  6. Thanks for sharing. It seems that everytime I find a shoe I like it gets discontinued. In the past few years I have gone from Brooks to Mizuno to New Balance. I’ll have to try out some Under Armor shoes next time I shop for a new pair.

  7. I love a lightweight minimal shoe. I can’t go back to a more cushioned shoe now. I’m spoiled.
