Has Saucony started a revolution? By all accounts, the brand is causing a turnaround. While all brands are figuring out how to make the fastest shoe a fraction faster, Saucony shows up with the first stable shoe with dynamic character.

In recent years, carbon shoes have been all the rage. Everything was about speed. One (sizable) category was overlooked in this: the group of runners who would benefit from extra support. Saucony has made a more than creditable attempt to fill the gap with the Tempus . It’s about time.

Superfoam and still stable? Saucony is the first to prove it can be done.

The Saucony Tempus is the first lightweight, tempo shoe to offer stability and support. By combining their own PWRRUN PB foam with the PWRRUN foam, Saucony creates the best of both worlds. You may know the PWRRUN PB foam from the lightning-fast versions of the Endorphin Pro and Endorphin Speed. It provides softness, resilience and endless energy return during running. This superfoam is also ultralight. The “plain” PWRRUN foam is characterized by its stability and firmness.

The two materials were not put together haphazardly. The PWRRUN foam sits around the foot like a frame. The deep contouring means the foot is firmly encased in the material and you are supported from landing to setting off. This golden combination makes the Saucony Tempus a lot lighter than other running shoes with a (slightly) supportive feel.

Additional assets that contribute to stability

The success of this shoe lies not only in the midsole. The wider fit, wide platform, supportive strap in the upper as well as its suitability for inserting orthotics are all individual pieces of the puzzle that combine to create the overall picture.

Opinion of Runners’ lab experts

The advisers at Runners’ lab were eager to test out this new shoe. Their findings summarized:

“The Saucony Tempus is soft and responsive on the heel and forefoot. The midfoot is firm and stable. The PWRRUN foam gives a stable feel while the PWRRUN PB foam feels cushioning without being too soft.”

“You can use this shoe perfectly for a quiet, long endurance run. Even then, the shoe continues to provide comfort from start to finish. It does notice that the Tempus comes into its own best during slightly faster paces. Conclusion? It is a smooth, fast and stable shoe. A model that we were missing in our store. Runners who really need stability can even use it as a competition shoe.”
