There’s soon to be a new addition to Under Armour’s rapidly expanding running sneaker collection, and it’s called the UA Toxic Six.
Drawing inspiration from nature, the Toxic Six comes cloaked in a venomous frog-print neoprene upper. But this shoe doesn’t just look cool, it’s a performance beast through and through. Featuring a low profile design, the shoe encourages midfoot-to-forefoot strike, which it achieves via an ultra flexible Micro GTM midsole, for a smooth, natural ride. The neoprene upper offers a comfortable glove-like fit, while the asymmetrical lacing system (which seams to be all the hype this year amongst running brands) reduces both weight and drag. Everything is housed on a marbleized rubber outsole designed to endure a thorough beating. All that technology, yet the sneaker only weighs 6.75 ounces.
The UA Toxic Six will be available in April in both men’s and women’s models. Retail price is set at $100.
