Under Armour RC Charge – Freakishly Amazing

I seriously love shoes.

When people come to my house for the first time and see my diverse shoe collection which is crammed into a over the door shoe holder thing, the usual response is an audible gasp immediately followed by, ‘Oh WOW! That’s a lot of shoes…‘.

Shoes travel life with you, showcase your sassy self, and always fit even if you dove head first into the peanut butter jar the night before.

*AHEM*

Imagine my absolute glee when the cutest running shoes on the planet showed up via FedEx!

Meet the distinctly cute Under Armour RC Charge.

I think I made some sort of high pitched 'squeee' noise when I pulled them out of the box. So cute!

As though it were a match made in heaven, they perfectly coordinate with my latest workout outfit.

Perfection! How much more coordinated can a Figure Competitor get?

Cute is good, but functional is GREAT.

I have way too many shoes that are made for ‘sitting‘, so I wanted to give these babies a good beating to make sure they are more than a ‘pretty face‘.

Its go time. Show me what you're made of.

I popped them into my Livewell360 Core bag and put them to the test twice this week.

RC Charge meet leg day and  floor hockey.

I only scored two goals. I think the cuteness distracted me.

I wanted to make sure they lived up to the hype.

“The UA Charge RC’s temperature-regulating HeatGear® upper keeps you cool, while strategic compression provides a custom fit. Underneath is a Carbon Spring Plate that enhances your stride. And, of course, all of it sits on our exclusive UA Micro G® cushioning…for more bounce.”

  • Exclusive UA Micro G® foam cushioning is light, bouncy & super-responsive.
  • Zonal UA Compression hugs the foot & promotes power.
  • Built-in Carbon Spring Plate maximizes energy return.
  • Ultra-light MPZ® toe & tongue pads protect your feet.
  • HeatGear® fabric wicks moisture for cool, dry performance.
  • Carbon & blown rubber outsole delivers cushioning, traction & durability.
  • Weight: 8.5 oz.

Honestly, they are ‘freakishly amazing’.  

Under Armour’s RC Charge is a great shoe and worth the price. This Figure Competitor gives them two thumbs up and will be rocking them every day at 6:30 am while lifting baby weights and not harming the skinny and confused man at the YMCA.

What shoes do you train in? Are the ‘freakishly amazing’ too?
