In addition, the sock – like higher as that in the La Sportiva Mutant on which the La Sportiva Tempesta constructed is! The higher solid Sock-like preventing “very good” the penetration of stones, mud and rain. Until shortly under the drawn ankle and soft fabric on the inside it bothers while running in keinsterweise .
My first impression of La Sportiva Tempesta
The first thing I was able to discover the fit is that not fit my wide feet volume. This is partly due to the sock design that is only minimally extensible to other insole on the 4mm thick OrthoLite. The solution is simple, with me normal. Simply replace the insole by a thinner! And already the seat of the shoe: D.
That was about the only negative among I found! However, that to borrow my wide feet. Who does not want to give up the 4mm ortholite Mountain running insole, preferring to try on the shoe in the store or order larger.
The quick lacing of La Sportiva Tempesta is a real treat! Tighten once, loop tie finished. Pull no annoying correct or similar. The laces are long enough so there are no loops or small double grind necessary. Since the laces are long there is an extra “pocket” for stowing the laces. There is everything what goes space and stays there.
The frixion AT sole.
The first steps on asphalt give the impression as if I’m sticking to normal. A well very good rubber compound! The addition allows to screw in special zones AT spikes to have on icy grip due. The attenuation of la Sportiva Tempesta makes a very good damping / soft impression during normal go. This may be because the midsole and heel Stronger are subdued as the forefoot – area. Not vague but soft, well balanced. The forefoot is very pleasant steamed! Noticeably yet instantly responsive to movement. “The explosion” has a difference of one centimeter. run natural forefoot is thus no problem.
In the mud and on Rocky underground, the sole Excellent behaves. The grip is lacking in any area in which I could wear the shoe to date (forest, mud, gravel, stony underground).
Perfect Processed Mountain running shoes can be located in the area Mudrunner! I look forward to the cold slushy winter with the La Sportiva Tempesta! Good grip in all tested were. Price corresponds to the processing. Waterproof. Lace pocket.
For me, a very good trail running shoe is sure to be found on hike its use!
