There is some stability in the mid-sole. No-sew construction lessens the chance of blistering and discomfort.
Updates to Zoot Ultra Tempo 6.0
- Zoot comes up with minimal changes in the Tempo 6.0. These minor modifications should be able to maintain the line’s superb performance. In this version, there is a lesser forefoot overlay, which should add more room in the toe box.
- Zoot also made the tongue more perforated in the 6th version of the Tempo. This update readily enhances shoe breathability.
- The outsole gets moderate changes in the form of new small rubber lugs near the heel on the medial side for added grip. For improved flexibility, the forefoot grooves are a bit wider and deeper.
Zoot Ultra Tempo 6.0 size and fit
Average fit and sizing are available in the Ultra Tempo 6.0 just like in the past version. The fit wraps the foot snugly in the heel, midfoot, and forefoot. This is a trademark fit of the line, which could also mean that runners who want some more room in the toe box or for those who want to wear socks could go half a size up. Available widths are D and B while sizes are 6 to 14 for the men’s and 4 to 11 for the women’s.
The outsole features moderately-sized lugs called the ZPU pattern. It provides adequate grip on the road. Zoot uses sturdy carbon rubber in the heel for protection against impact. This carbon rubber is also utilized in the outsole of the Zoot Makai and Zoot Solana 2.
Zoot’s proprietary Z-Bound midsole is made of resilient and durable foam. Despite being very light, this foam delivers superb responsiveness. Part of the midsole is a stability pod, which holds off overpronation. The carbon shank in the sole also helps with the stability and enhanced takeoffs.
A soft and very plush Zoot fabric called BareFIt gives the upper very nice step-in comfort. Zoot’s Tri-Dry technology, which is moisture-wicking and quick-drying assures a blister-free run. The use of speed laces in the Quick-Lace system offers quick and effortless transition to running.
