Under Armour SpeedForm Gemini 3


$120, Underarmour.com

The draw: Cushion and pep in one

The new Gemini 3 proves Under Armour is coming on strong in the running world. This lightweight performance trainer is built on an energetic midsole foam chassis that offers great long-haul comfort, durability and protection with ample responsiveness for tempo-paced runs. The third edition has been vastly improved with a new upper and more snug mid-foot/forefoot fit, plus it’s nearly half an ounce lighter than the previous version. It fits a wide range of foot sizes and shapes, rides great and looks good.
