Under Armour’s Apparition II delivers the kind of foot-embracing one would expect from an apparel manufacturer. Our testers found the fit elastic enough that it would keep most shapes and sizes of feet comfortable. The Apparition ran a little on the firm side and gave the impression that it was providing non-intrusive structure with moderate weight and stability.
