Light and soft, the Zoot Women's Tempo Trainer Running Shoe is an ideal companion when your workout calls for hill work or group fartlek runs. Two types of midsole materials and a stability post offer cushioned support for all but the longest of your marathon training runs. When runs shorter than 20 milers speak to you, find yourself fleet of foot at your favorite 5 or 10Ks in the quick and nimble Tempo. Air mesh on top gives your toes a breath of fresh air. Despite a fairly low profile, you can still put a custom insert in the Tempo without squishing your foot. The 10mm heel forefoot drop softens the impact for heel strikers without discriminating entirely against those who favor a more midfoot oriented gait. Combining Z Bound with a dual density material creates a highly responsive and lightweight midsole. A stability post reduces the severity of overpronating without completely tweaking your foot's natural tendencies. CarbonSpan in the sole smooths your heel toe transition and sends you bounding into your next steps without wasting energy. For everything but your 22 mile training runs, you'll have no problem finding your rhythm in the Tempo trainer running shoe.
