UA SpeedForm Gemini 3 RE
Probably the most technically advanced trainer of the bunch, Under Armour’s Gemini 3 Record-Equipped running shoe goes beyond knit uppers with an always-on sensor in the heel that tracks and analyzes tons of running metrics to keep you dialed in to your fitness. The Record technology works with UA’s Runkeeper app and the MapMyRun suite, and is surprisingly easy to set up—just download the app, create an account, shake your right shoe to connect, and voila!: Your run/walk in/on the park/treadmill time is automatically tracked without being tethered to your phone.
As for the fit? The Gemini’s toe box feels a bit on the narrow side for me, although it packs in a fair amount of cushioning for being so lightweight. As a 6’3”, 220-lb. forefoot striker, I find these shoes have just the right amount of padding under the balls of my feet for shorter runs. The shoe would probably better suit smaller or lighter runners, but the knit midfoot upper snugly supported my feet. Heel strikers will love the Micro G cushioning in the heel cup.
