A Waterproof Winter Running shoe designed for training sessions and every day use in the winter. Versatile, lightweight and quick to pull on thanks to the Sock-Shield construction, the perfect choice for running on different types of off-road terrain.
The sticky sole offers excellent grip on slippery surfaces including mud and snow and grip on scree or ice thanks to the deep lugs and compatible with AT-Grip Spikes. The Quick-Lace system with lace pockets and the Sock-Shield construction with integrated gaiter embrace the foot and eliminate empty spaces within the shoe. It also prevents stones, mud and snow from entering the boot. The lacing system is integrated with the structure of the uppers: This solution allows for regulation of volumes and keeps the foot in check on traverse routes. The seamless construction and the super flex membrane in waterproof and breathable Gore-Tex make Tempesta the perfect choice for athletes who train during the winter months.
UPPER: The uppers are made from abrasion resistant, breathable, water repellent mesh and the lining uses the GORE-TEX membrane to guarantee waterproof and breathability. The shoes combine durable waterproofness and optimised breathability, offering enduring waterproof protection and optimised climate comfort. Water stays on the outside whilst perspiration can easily escape from the inside of the shoes. Thanks to their innovative construction they are an ideal solution for the widest range of outdoor activities and changing weather conditions.
The upper also features a single mesh that aids ventilation and breathability. The mesh allows air to fully permeate the entire upper providing a constant supply of fresh, cool air. Simultaneously the mesh forces out hot, muggy air that resides in the shoes during heavy exertion activities. A sock-Shield construction is a unique innovation that provides unbelievable amounts of comfort by offering a sock-like fit, eliminating any spaces inside the shoe.
An easy lace system with an integrated lace pocket allows easy lacing and allows you to store the laces, preventing distractions such as the laces snagging on debris on the trail. In addition, the lacing system integrates with the structure of the upper and works in tandem with the mesh to provide a more snug and comfortable fitting when the laces are tightened. This construction eliminates in shoe slipping and provides added structure to the upper. Lastly, a rubber toe bumper provides excellent protection when on unpredictable terrain against rocks and debris that could potentially cause injury.
OUTSOLE: The Tempesta outsole has the FriXion AT dual density compound. FriXion is designed to give good grip, durability and shock absorption on all types of terrains. The outsole also features the innovative impact brake system that is applied to the sole to absorb the negative ground impact and improve grip when running downhill. The unique position of the lugs allows many of them to come in contact with the ground for maximum grip and impact absorption. The outsole lugs are also compatible with the La Sportiva AT-Grip spikes to provides extra grip on muddy and slippy surfaces.
