Under Armour Running Shoes: Micro G Toxic Six

What I'm Test Running: Under Armour's Micro G Toxic Six running shoe


Why:
  1. It deserves to be called Micro. Lightweight and low profile at 5.5 oz. 
  2. The laces are offset to reduce pressure on top of the foot (I have such high arches, I usually can't wear Nike). 
  3. A friend who is sponsored by Under Armour offered (full disclosure!).

So far I've worn them for a 3 miler on pavement and 1.5 miles on the treadmill. The fit is good and I like the sock liner more than I thought would. Sadly, my achilles is acting up. Not sure if it's the shoe - there is almost no padding under the ball of the foot - or me, so I'm giving myself a little break. More after I've logged a few more runs.
