Innovation meets an aesthetically pleasing design: the Tempo 8s boast industry leading midsole boost technology which generates more comfort propulsion in each and every step. Featuring a coolever mesh upper and a Contintental rubber outsole, the Tempo 8 will help to push you every step of the way during your training.
A clean, slim-fitting upper provides comfort and stability. Open mesh means increased airflow; creating a better, healthier environment for your feet to thrive in. Synthetic overlays at the midfoot are integrated for support, wrapping the structure for a secure fit to the foot; reducing in-shoe slippage for a smooth, distraction-free ride.
The Tempo 8's midsole features adidas' revolutionary boost technology. Boost capsules are extremely lightweight and compressible to offer excellent cushioning and shock absorption; however, they also offer support as when fused together they do not compress fully. The result is a highly cushioned, supportive and lightweight midsole. Boost technology's main magic comes from its energy returning properties. As the Boost particles compress they temporarily store your body's kinetic energy; when the Boost particles expand again, they release this energy and help to supercharge your run. Consequently the Boost technology helps to minimise the energy lost during the gait cycle, which will take your performance to a whole new level: you will run with an extra spring in your step, reduce the strain placed on your muscles, and be able to run for longer.
Embedded within the midsole of the Adizero Tempo 8 is another secret weapon which delivers a seamless transition through the gait cycle. Through the integration of a dual-density TORSION SYSTEM, the Adizero Boost allows for more independent movements between the heel and forefoot, giving runners superior stability and a smooth, controlled run.
Continental rubber delivers 21% more traction in dry conditions and 23% more traction in wet conditions, and is much more durable than standard outsole rubbers - it is the same rubber that features on car tyres! What does this mean for your run? You will feel more stable, regardless of the conditions, and consequently you will be more confident and able to perform to the best of your ability. The Continental rubber's durability is augmented by the addition of ADIWEAR rubber, which enhances durability further to enable the wearer to go mile after mile without interruption.
