The material tends to be less dense and lighter and provides a responsive bounce. The heel section has a high-abrasion rubber. The material is dense and designed for absorption of harmful shock created with each footfall. It is a durable compound that handles shock and preserves the structure of the midsole.
It doesn’t wear out or peel off easily. The front section is made more adherent by flex grooves that promote the natural movement of runners’ feet. Runners prone to injury reported the shoes help keep them injury-free.
It is designed to keep runners from premature fatiguing by returning energy to the runner. The heel section has Micro G Cushioning that absorbs foot strike impact forces and bounces forward causing a springy transition to the toe-off.
An embedded Sock Liner that follows the underfoot shape gives cushioning and support to the arch, which usually receives little attention in neutral shoes. Threadborne midfoot panels also provide arch support.
The heel cup is among the most secure. Heels don’t move while wearing the shoes. The new technology seems like a flashy piece of design but adds a bit more security to the midfoot when running. An engineered mesh is used to cover the foot securely and provide breathable coverage. Environmental air is welcomed into the foot chamber to keep the environment dry and cool at all times.
A supportive band surrounding the midfoot does not have air holes but is made of a material that is highly ventilated. Runners report a comfortable feel even on hot runs, because of the shoes offering increased airflow. Engineered mesh on the toe box and tongue increase ventilation and enhance fit.
Runners say the shoes provide adequate comfort for long runs without worry of irritation. They say they can achieve pre-developed routines because there is no distraction caused by blisters, irritation, or seam. An embedded sock liner has been added to provide even more cushioning and work to circulate air and wick away sweat.
Bright colors are offered for those who want a look that is vibrant and black and white shapes for runners looking for classic styling options. The geometric pattern of the midsole sets it apart from similarly styled shoes. Runners found the sleek and thin look to be the ideal accessory for casual outfits.
They are great for half marathon training. The shoes take a beating and keep up speed on tempo days. Runners are pleased with the shoe’s overall durability. The upper is breathable and extremely lightweight.
The engineered mesh stands up against the elements. It does not rip or fray. Dual midsole foams do a superb job of keeping their shape and spring. The shoes are designed for long distances. Even after long runs, the midsole foams maintain their shape.
Of the two rubber compounds used, the one located in the forefoot section is more responsive than the other. One of the technology systems has a springiness that allows the feet to lift from the ground in a way that is more responsive than the other system. Dual materials are used in the outsole, but they are thin and allow runners to feel the road underneath their feet. The outsold helps runners efficiently respond to direction and pace changes.
The midsole is the other supportive area. It molds to the foot’s shape which gives added arch support.to
the runner. The Gemini 3 is not the shoe for runners who need maximum support for plantar fasciitis or
The midfoot gets enough support to keep moving forward but s not super stiff. The midsoles rise above
the soles of the feet. They provide a bit of a controlling foot bucket. There is not a bridge for extra push on the medial side.
The solid, large heel counter and the upper are enough support for neutral runners who have no extra needs. The wide base prevents instability issues upon landing for forefoot strikers. A short lacing system provides the rest of the stability and support. The lace holes are straps that pull the midfoot panel over the foot, then tie into the midsole. They keep the shoes from feeling detached. When the foot is at one with the shoe, runs are quicker and easier.
It outlasts many models that are more expensive. Some colorways have been marked down to $103. Amazon sells the shoes for prices that range from $47.91 to $211. It is an excellent shoe for runners who want an everyday trainer.
Under Armour has grasped the traction concept for running shoes. Most people don’t think about it until it’s needed. Under normal conditions, runners do not need traction as they travel up and down or front to back. Under Armour provides grip in all directions.
On the lateral side, soft rubber provides serious pull when cornering. The hard black areas beneath the balls of the feet take punishment when the impact is a bit harsher. Flex grooves in the Threadborne Slingflex permit the forefront to be in ground contact a great deal of the time to give the shoes better grip.
