Saucony Tempus ($one hundred sixty)

Introduction

Sam: The Tempus is a mild “balance” instructor that upends the standard, tired and frequently over prescriptive techniques to balance. No posts, no plastic pieces, no over company foam or overbuilt higher right here. Saucony in reality used a fairly firm PWRRUN EVA foam to create an outside steering body strolling alongside most of the outer sidewalls and under foot on the outsole but just along the outer edges besides on the medial midfoot where it will become a pad of aid at the road.

They then stuffed the body  with PEBA multiplied beads PWRRUN PB foam with its responsive rebound. In a  neat twist, they stored the PB because the whole midsole at the heel laterally and to a lesser extent medially to provide a smooth and rebounding touchdown. 

PB foam as used in Saucony’s Endorphin Speed and Pro and in their new Endorphin Edge  is lighter than EVA while supplying strong energy return and as a end result the high stacked  36.5 heel / 28.five mm forefoot Tempus weighs a mere nine.03 oz  / 266g (US9). 

Carrying ahead the assist and mild theme, the higher is thin, dense engineered mesh paying homage to trail shoe uppers with a single stout overlay on both aspects  tied into the laces 

The Tempus is for positive intriguing, probably bridging several worlds: guide instructor, neutral trainer, high stack max cushion, and superb foam powered journey. Let’s see what our testers thought, noting  that most by and large steer clean of “aid/stability” type footwear.
