This advanced trainer offers tremendous flexibility, which is sometimes uncommon in shoes designed for overpronation. For this reason, this shoe is considered ideal for speed workouts, such as fartlek or tempo runs, or as a race-day shoe.
Adidas really seems to have taken its runners reviews seriously, and made some improvements from the original Adizero Tempo. The Tempo has a wider fit, and some of the overlays were removed to alleviate rubbing.
Designers adjusted the shoe’s midfoot pro-moderator unit to improve the movement from heel-to-toe. Other than these slight changes, the Adidas Tempo is quite similar to its predecessor in look and feel.
Is Adidas Adizero Tempo The Best Running Shoe For Me?
Most runners who tried the Adidas Tempo loved the fit. It was snug, but not too restrictive, lightweight but supportive, and an overall comfortable shoe.
Several runners praised this shoe for it tremendous balance from side to side motion, and thought it was a great option for speed demons or those who just need a lighter shoe for tempo runs.
The only drawback to these shoes was that some runners felt that they were a little narrow. So, if you have a wider foot, this may not be the best shoe for you. Instead, you may want to check out the Adidas Supernova Adapt, which is also a great option for moderate to severe overpronation.
Overall, runners gave the Adidas Tempo two-thumbs-up! This shoe encompasses two qualities that every runner desires– to be light and fast. However, this does make this shoe a poor choice for longer runs, or for training.
So, how do you know if this shoe is right for you? Well, if you are like me and have a need for speed, you have found the right shoe in the Adizero Tempo. Get a pair today, tie these babies on, and plan for a full-throttle ride!
