Adidas adiZERO Tempo 4

Adidas adiZERO Tempo 4 is an everyday trainer for very efficient runners. The design of this shoe is very streamlined, giving the shoe a faster look. It is also very lightweight, which means a featherlike stride everytime.

The upper has a basic design, nothing very flattering. It is made up of a breathable air mesh upper that gives a cooler environment for runners who run long distances and have sweaty feet. It is very appropriate for warm climates as it keeps the air flow in and out of the shoe. However a setback with this kind of design is that it does not prevent water or snow sloshes to enter the shoe. These trainers are good if the weather is warm and sunny and not otherwise.

The ForMotion Technology in the heel makes sure that the each run would be smooth and comfortable. It allows the heel to adapt to different kinds of ground and footfalls.

The forefoot is made up of adiPRENE+ that maintains the shoe’s propulsion and efficiency. The Torsion System is still sported by the adiZERO Tempo 4; it maintains the medial integrity by providing adaptive midfoot support. The posting on the midsole called Pro-moderator is an update to the Tempo 4. This medial support device has a higher density compared to previous postings and it is better in preventing overpronation. AdiPRENE can be seen under the heel for superior cushioning at impact. Finally it has the adiWEAR outsole that offers enhanced durability to the shoe.

What most wear-testers and reviewers appreciate is the shoe’s cushioning. They agree that the footwear is more plush on the forefoot than the heel. This balance gives them very smooth ride for every transition, from a firmer heel to a softer landing on the forefoot. The different densities on the shoe give the runners a faster and a more responsive feel for every stride.

This everyday trainer is also recommended for racers who seek supportive footwear for long runs. It is also suitable for neutral to mild overpronators that seek a stable and cushioned ride. The adiZERO Tempo 4 retails for $100.
