Under Armour Running Shoes: Micro G Toxic Six

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

  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.
