Under Armour Apparition II — ($95)

underarmor2010 Summer Shoe Guide Homepage

As Under Armour’s protective neutral road shoe, this trainer struck our testers as having a notably foot-hugging upper, which comes as no surprise given the body-conforming apparel line that spawns the footwear. The Apparition’s update features a new midsole platform of mid and aft cushioning with minimal guidance, a ride that our testers observed as moving naturally with their feet throughout the gait cycle. There isn’t a lot of underfoot protection in the low-profile forefoot, so it isn’t recommended for those with sensitive metatarsals. underarmour.com
