▸ A set of Clean Slate Workout Swipes - the shower free way to cleanse and revitalize your face and body before and after a workout.

SpeedForm Gemini 3 Record Running Shoes by Under Armour
Under Armour's award-winning digitally connected shoes are perfect for your friend who loves to work out, but is also kind of a nerd.

The sneakers track and store workout data without requiring you to have a phone nearby, then sync to the app so you can see your performance.
Most importantly, they're comfortable to wear and look good in motion, unlike some of Under Armour's other shoe lines (Sorry, Steph).
