#UnderArmour Micro G Toxic Six #Running Shoes #review #ua #iwill

After Insanity, C25K training and running four races, it was time to trade in my Nikes and get something new.


I have some pretty big goals for my running this year, namely to run more races {yes, even though I'm pregnant!} and collect more medals than in 2013. Right now, I am registered for 3 official races, with 3 more to register for, then there are 4 LOST series runs that I am set to complete.

I have also noticed that after about 3km, my toes go numb. I talked to Amy at Under Armour about this issue, and about my prenatal fitness plan, and she suggested the Micro G Toxic Six.


First and foremost, I was really impressed with how lightweight these shoes are. I'm not a fan of clunky running shoes, and sort of like to feel the ground beneath my feet. The Micro G Toxic Six Running Shoes are definitely a minimalist shoe with a very natural feel to them. Check out the bottoms!


In terms of construction, the offset laces definitely relieve pressure on the top of your foot, which means great things if you ever experience numbness while you're running. One tip though, since the laces are offset, you don't need to tie them as tight as you would a normal shoe. I made that mistake on my first run, and experienced a little bit of numbness, but once I figured out the issue and made adjustments, I was good to go.

If I could compare the feeling of wearing these running shoes to anything, I would say that they almost feel like you are wearing compression shoes. They fit like a glove to your foot, and it's a perfect fit every single time. This is because of the molded neoprene upper, that moves with your foot.


Another bonus are the perforations in the heel and toe of the shoe. They are SO breathable. My first run with them was in Florida and boy, was it hot and humid! No more gross sweaty feet, and stained socks!! Such a nice change from what I am used to. The last time I went for a pedicure, the nail tech commented that the bottoms of my feet look shredded. I told her that I'm a runner, and it made sense: my shoes weren't breathing and my feet were just used to being sweaty.

If you're in search of a new pair of running shoes, I would highly recommend the Under Armour Micro G Toxic Six. Design wise, they are beautiful, and they are the best fitting running shoe that I have tried yet!
