Fall 2012 Trail Running Shoe Review

Scarpa Tempo, $115

10.5 oz. (m), 9.3 oz. (w)

Fit: These have a comfortable fit throughout the shoe, with a secure heel cup and just enough extra room in the toe box to keep tootsies happy. Welded overlays cinch down with the laces for extra support and a comfortable fit.

Feel: The Tempo is a low-slung shoe with a fairly neutral (6mm drop) feel – not too high, not too low.

Ride: Think of these as the ‘daily’ shoe in your quiver. They don’ t change your stride, but offer a neutral platform for whatever you bring, providing a smooth heel to toe ride and responsiveness with a forefoot strike. Multi-directional lugs provide good traction in varying conditions, while a flexible rock plate and reinforced toe give extra protection when needed.
