When I used to think of Under Armour I would think of those skin tight shirts the football players wear under their uniforms. More recently the UA Hoodies became crazy popular. I knew they had workout clothing, I just never thought about them having shoes. I was contacted by Under Armour asking if I’d be interested in reviewing one of their products and immediately the shoes stuck out to me, I mean, How could they not? They are hot pink and teal – the best color combo out there! Check out the Under Armour Spine RPM Running Shoes
I was so excited when they arrived at my house, something about the Under Armour logo makes me feel so tough. I sat and looked at the box for .04 seconds before ripping into it. I had to see these pink beauties for myself!!
Even with a tough looking logo like that, there is no denying these shoes are incredibly beautiful! The pink and teal are just as vivid in real life as in the picture. Neon is the new black, right? Good news is they match with most of my pink workout gear! As soon as I opened them I put them on and walked around the house for a bit. They fit true to size, I wear an 8.5 in most shoes and this was no different. What I noticed right away was that these had the same feeling of support that my old Nike Pegasus shoes had, but they are a lot lighter.
I took them out for my longest run since like June, a 4 miler! They felt super comfortable from the first step, and didn’t rub the back of my heels (which is a problem I have had with previous “new” shoes). I was so proud of myself for going the first 2 miles with the stroller and then going back out for another 2 solo. I don’t know if it was just because I have wider feet, but the laces seemed a bit short which made it hard to tie them tight. I had to retie them a few times, but I finally figured out how to keep them tied.
They are pretty flexible, which makes it easy to push off with your toes when running. They have great traction as well. The Spine RPM isn’t the only shoe that Under Armour makes – They have all sorts of running and training shoes.
See how excited I was that the Under Armour Spine RPM shoes helped me run 4 miles!
Overall I have really enjoyed them! I love that they are great for runs, but are cute enough to wear with casual attire. WINNING. These would also make great gifts for Christmas!
and guess what?! Later this week you are going to have a chance to WIN your own pair, Just in time for Christmas! Check back Thursday for more details.
