Great Training Shoe, Major Design Flaw However
RoadRunner359 - Apr 20, 2021
I initially purchased a pair of Tempos late last year, I'm an experienced runner and put anywhere from 70-80 miles a week in training shoes. While these shoes are comfortable, they have a MAJOR design flaw. The original pair I had purchased developed structural cracking behind the air pods, the slim "bridge" between the air pods and the midsole of the lower (about 180 miles of wear). This was about a 3" crack, only on the right shoe. Nike customer service took them back, evaluated and provided me a refund to get another pair (I was pleasantly surprised). Come to later last week I bairly hit 200 miles in the "replacement" Tempos and sure enough the same thing happened again. However this time more catastrophic. The left shoe had developed the same crack in the same location, whereas the right shoe completely came apart (see pic below). I have since sent the second pair back to Nike for their "evaluation". So the same thing has happened in two different pairs of shoes (all i'm running on is solid, smooth pavement, no gravel or trail). I feel this design flaw needs to be addressed otherwise it'll never be right. Would be 5 stars without the structural issues in my opinion.
Great while it lasted

Initially loved the shoes. Took a run or two to get used to the fit but it's great for running. However, after about the 4th run they stretched out so much and have this strange indentation on the left shoe. Hope nike can address this because it was great while it lasted.

Really happy with this purchase, the shoes are comfortable and give a great return of energy on tempo runs. I can understand the odd 'loud or clumsy' review, but when your working hard they are fantastic. It's my first purchase of a more premium level shoe and I love them. I also have to say the service and help I received via the app through the messaging area was excellent in particular an employee called Sophie went above and beyond.
