Whether you’re an experienced runner or just getting started with the sport, you’ve likely heard mention of the Nike Air Zoom Tempo NEXT% for its industry-leading performance.

Recently, the tried-and-proven running sneaker appeared in a race day-ready mix of “Volt,” “Bright Crimson,” blue and “Black” colors, along with a quote credited to the late Steve Prefontaine. The bulk of the woven upper indulges in neon green flair, while ZoomX foam underfoot divvies up an equally-vibrant duo of hues. As has become customary on visible Zoom Air-cushioned Nike running shoes, the responsive Air units at the forefoot opt for a “Volt” makeover, too. Prefontaine’s words – “To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift” – are stamped onto the medial midsole, offering words of inspiration to anyone who may lace up the Tempo NEXT% and experience doubt, intimidation, laziness or something else when confronted with the path ahead.

Enjoy official images of the pair ahead, and anticipate a Nike.com launch before the summer ends.
