Under Armour Apparition
A good shoe for high-arched runners wanting lots of bounce.

Our Review

The Apparition is a very well-cushioned shoe, with thick plugs of Under Armour's Cartilage gel in the heel to absorb shock and plush full-length foam in the midsole.

This seems to be a conflicting review about these shoes.  There is a big red "X" next to "High Arch Fit", yet the review states it is "a good shoe for high-arched runners wanting lots of bounce".  So which is it?

I'm looking for a new pair of shoes after realising that I have the wrong type for my running style and i have a very high instep, but how can I trust these reviews when I read conflicting comments like this?

With respect, I hope someone reads this and can provide some assurance about the quality of reviews on this site.

My suspicion is that the red X implies that the high arch is a negative because it will only fit people with high arches. (Maybe only really really high arches...?)

Anyway, I'd suggest you go to a specialist running store where they can look at your gait and recommend a style of shoe. From there, you can choose one that actually fits you (as opposed to 'fits an average magazine tester').

The running store will cost a few quid more than buying on t'internet. But you'll have a much higher likelihood of getting the right pair of shoes, which is probably worth something.
