Found those Saucony Tempus samples and determined to offer it a try as I changed into interested in how the PWRRUN PB midsole would experience in a balance shoe.For some heritage, I am particularly a neutral mid/forefoot striker that never want/tried a balance shoe, so cannot simply examine to any of the alternative balance shoes.I put simply a bit over 2 hundred miles in them the past month and in the end have a while to put together a small evaluation.
I actually have always enjoyed the fit and upper on all of the Saucony’s I have worn (speeds/seasoned and kinvara 11) and this one is no exception.I went my proper to size and it in shape perfect with an excellent amount of toebox space for the feet to splay.No troubles with breathability either with the shoe, felt adore it did well here in the SoCal weather and no warm spots either
As proven in my photograph, the outsole of the shoe held up surely properly and suggests slightly any signal of wear.I suppose this lack of wear shown additionally varies among all people since we all have distinct running mechanics and body sorts, but nevertheless accurate to realize that for me, the shoe looks true after the quantity of miles logged.Grip on it as not because the quality compared to something like continental with adidas or pumagrip, but still did excellent on those days I wore them after it rained
The midsole from what I’ve determined online consists of PWRRUN PB (white&yellow) at the center with PWRRUN (grey) as the frame presenting the needed stability.With the PWRRUN PB used, it certainly does have that equal midsole feeling you get within the Speeds, but with the stableness frames, it does provide a greater supportive experience while making the shoe a tad bit less attackable at some point of the primary couple runs.The midsole does soften up through the years and that balance posting/frame used need to be remarkable for the runners right here that want a stability shoe.I personally had a chunk of an problem with the medial postings as I concept it got here up a chunk high and rubbed towards my feet inflicting some minor blisters before everything, but turned into no issue when I figured out the lacing and had the shoe greater broken in so, this will probably greater of a personal difficulty.Other than that minor difficulty, the shoe accomplished surely properly for me on all sorts of runs, although I concept it labored first-class for me as a shoe that I should simply devour up my miles in.I pretty plenty positioned it thru all sorts of paces, and found that it worked excellent for me on my daily runs and also lengthy mild/gradual runs.I did strive selecting up the tempo a pair instances, but I just never actually enjoyed it going fast because of how clunky I notion it felt with the introduced stability elements.An extra issue I could add is that, the shoe does seem to just sense so much higher as you add extra miles on it, that’s how I felt with the Speeds as nicely.
Overall, I enjoyed the past month strolling within the Tempus and with it, I do desire that this shoe lets in Saucony to in the end provide a stability model of the Speeds and additionally, for them to ultimately update the Shifts and make use of PWRRUN PB as I wanted they did from the start (might be even cool if they did PWRRUN PB on the core and a PWRRUN service).
