ZOOT Ultra Tempo 5.0 Running Shoe - Men's
- Detail Images
Quick transitions and a close, smooth fit for race day.
Triathletes are defined by their versatility and their grit-your-teeth endurance, and the ZOOT Men's Ultra Tempo 5.0 Running Shoe is no different. The Tempo goes where your typical road running shoe doesn't belong: at the front of a fast-moving pack of elite athletes who don one piece of gear just as soon as they shed another. BareFit design gives this shoe a soft, smooth feel on the inside and the type of comfort that you'll rave about after marathon distances on hot pavement. There's no need to mess with socks, because the close-fitting upper and smooth inner lining are designed specifically to hold your foot without causing blisters. Quick-pull laces are a standard on triathlon footwear, but ZOOT took the lacing setup a step further with an asymmetric shape that follows the contour of your foot for ultimate security.
After you whip through your transition and the rubber meets the road, you'll discover how light and powerful the Ultra Tempo feels underfoot. A carbon forefoot shank delivers a snappy feeling through toe-off, and when your foot hits the ground again, the dual-density midsole supports your stride and absorbs impact. Combined with the lightweight, breathable mesh upper, this all adds up to near effortless forward movement and a total weight of under ten ounces.
