  • 78 / 100 by Nightwing2303 • Chris Chase • Level 2 expert

    Super comfortable,nice and soft, but if you're gonna be running in them, go half a size at least.

  • 87 / 100 by The House • The House • Level 1 expert

    One thing you really notice is how comfortabl the shoe is out of the box.

  • 80 / 100 by Salt Marsh Running • Jason Saltmarsh • Level 4 expert

    There was no hint of floating or the greasy feel of too much cushioning underfoot. The shoe made excellent contact from the ground up

  • 90 / 100 by Amplify Running • Chris Narbone • Level 2 expert

    The biggest callout is the upper design of the Apollo Vent. No doubt its enhanced to allow more breathability and stretchy, sock-like comfort. This is a great performance shoe that builds on solid Speedform innovation.

    The Under Armour SpeedForm Apollo running shoe is so lightweight, you might even forget you’re wearing shoes!

  • 82 / 100 by All About Anthony • All About Anthony • Level 1 expert

    Overall these are a lightweight and low cost alternative to more popular knit-based running kicks that still look dope on foot!

  • 80 / 100 by Wear Testers • Rick Teves • Level 1 expert

    Under Armour took a shoe that was already great and made it better by adding the ArmourVent upper. As far as performance and other technologies nothing has changed from the previous model Apollo.
