Nike Air Zoom Tempo Next%: The brand’s fastest training shoe
Inspired by Nike’s elite racing shoes, the Air Zoom Tempo Next% is an addition to the growing Next% shoe line. As a daily-training counterpart of the Nike Air Zoom Alphafly Next%, Tempo is designed for maximum efficiency in everyday training. It will help you train for speed and get ready for racing.
The killer cushioning combo
- Composite plate
A full-length carbon-composite plate is infused in the midsole of this cushioned shoe for enhanced toe-off and smooth transitions. It is not as stiff as a carbon-fiber plate used in the super shoes for racing, which makes it more comfortable and forgiving for training.
- ZoomX foam and Zoom Air pods
Placed in the forefoot, this setup is identical to that found in the AlphaFly Next%. They deliver Nike's best possible responsiveness yet.
- React foam
A firm React foam in the rearfoot guards the heel from impact and helps to keep the foot stable on tuns and uneven pavement.
